GIANT apology and a little progress

Happy Friday, Everyone!

I wanted to start this post with a GIANT apology to all the wonderful people who have ever left a comment on one of my posts.  As you know, the comments show up on the post itself and also as an email in my inbox.  Instead of replying to the emails, I usually come back and "reply" to the actual comment on my blog.  I just realized this week that when I do it that way, the person who commented doesn't get an email back from me.... and might think I ignored (or worse yet, didn't appreciate!) their comment.  This makes me very sad, because comments MAKE MY DAY and I appreciate every single one of them!!!  From now on, I'll reply to the emails (instead of the comments on the blog) to make sure you get a response.  I'll be a good bloggy friend from now on, I promise!!

Now on to the progress I made on my May Small Project Sew Along list this week.... 

I was able to cross a few things off this week.  Woo hoo!

I made this messenger bag for my kindergartener's BFF's birthday (say that 3 times fast!):
Full post about the messenger bag it is here

I also got some embroidery and applique done for The Forever Project:

Made some goodies for my running buddies:

My current projects are these 3 items on my list:
15. Make or find a simple pattern for a tote / beach bag
16. Make a year-end gift for my kindergartener's teacher
17. Make a year-end gift for my 3rd grader's teacher
I have come up with a pattern (item #15) and I'm using it to make #16 and #17 (year-end teacher gifts).  I'm working on the first one now but it is not finished yet (as you can see from the photo below).  I'm hoping determined to complete this one and make one more this weekend.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you've worked on this week!

  1. Look at all those Ragnar pouches, they look fabulous!! You've been really busy :)

  2. I did the same thing when I first started blogging! It's all a learn as you go process! Your sweet little pink bag is really wonderful! What a great gift! Your zippered pouches are great too!

  3. Great projects and love all the pouches! I always reply to the emails, I'll go back to a blog for the next post but never read through the comments on one that I had already posted on. Stopping by from Sew Many Ways!

  4. That pink messenger bag is so cute! :0)

  5. Goodness you've been busy! All such pretty projects - whoop whoop!!

    And no apology necessary but I'm so glad we'll be able to start a "conversation" now! I never remember to go back to the bloggers who respond to comments that way./...

  6. Took me awhile to figure that out, your projects!

  7. I love the pink bag,very pretty.
