One Week Down, How many more to go?

I have just completed our first week of school. Boy, was it busy!! My husband can't understand why I am so tired when I come home the first week of school, I definitely stay busy during the summer but working with kids and other adults is a different kind of busy. I am exhausted. Every day when I have come home this week I have done the bare minimum. It has been all I could do to cook dinner every night. Hubby is out of town this weekend, so I have the house to myself, have already started getting caught up on the cleaning and laundry. I am really looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow. The only sewing I have done this week is to finish my Charming Girls challenge. I actually got one bag made over the weekend and started the other one. I made one change to the pattern, instead of using Velcro to fasten the bags I used the magnetic fasteners from Joann's, then sewed a large button over the fastener on the outside. I am giving one to my aunt for her birthday later this month, and will probably add the other one to my present closet. They are extremely easy to make, I think there might be a couple more in my future.ener on the outside.

It seems like there is sooo much to do the first week or so of school. I remember thinking that I'd never get caught up. At lease you were able to get in a little sewing. Your bags are really cute! They look like they are the size that my daughter would like to carry.

Thanks for leaving me a comment about my block size dilema. I haven't heard anything from anyone else, so I still haven't decided what to do. I was thinking today that I may just redo 1 or 2 of the larger seams in the blocks.

Cute purses...My sister was an elementary school librarian and she was always tired for the school year. She is retired now and enjoying the "freedom"

Brenda -- I am so impressed you got two purses done! I would fall asleep on the couch nearly every night the first week of school. Retirement is wonderful. Now I can fall asleep on the couch whenever I want to. And, thank goodness for comfy couches!

It's so reassuring to read that someone else was tired last week. This week should be better. I'm beginning to remember the routine.

I love your bags. I sought one of those boxes, too. I think my fabric is Aviary. You're ahead of me on that one.
