Sew little time...

Some of you may have noticed that it's been a while since I last posted something I made. This is mainly due to time constraint (either my workload has increased or I'm getting slower at getting it done), and a number of other mundane things that keep me away from the sewing machine. Unfortunately, this week is booked up with doctor's appointments plus a visit to the dentist and I just found out that my mother's longstanding illness has taken a turn for the worse. My mom lives about 400 miles from where I live, and it looks like we'll be driving over there end of the week. In the meantime my FIL generously offered to take care of Sammy, while we're gone. I've re-scheduled everything and hubby has taken time off work specially, because somehow I don't think I can cope with my mom's situation alone. My mother also has a little kitty. We've agreed it's best if we bring her back with us, although it's going to break my mom's heart. But atleast she knows that we will provide a good home for her. Well, with all of this going on I still managed to squeeze in some sewing, if only an eyeglass/ sunglass case. I made it wide, so it even fits Jackie O-type sunglasses. It is thickly padded and closes with a flap. take care everybody...
