I am a genius.
(Can I be a genius, if I’m not even sure how to spell it?)
Anyhow, no doubt. I really *am* a genius.
I am here working on my blog while my kids happily play where I can see them. They’re not fighting, they’re not hungry & they’re happy. They should be, after all, we are at the happiest place on earth (McDonald’s).
That is part of why I’m such an intellectual stud.
The real reason is that I finished a sewing project. The nifty & stylish bag that I used to bring my netbook here was made by yours truly! I had searched and searched for a netbook sleeve that I loved. And I found several that I really wanted, but I found them on etsy.com. And they were handmade. And they wanted like $20 minimum. It was hard for me to pay someone else to make something that I could.
So, yesterday I made a trip to my favorite store (JoAnn’s) and got to work. It took about 2 hours total and I had to tear out three or so seams that I didn’t do quite right, but I did it!
My sleeve is machine washable. It has a front pocket, hidden zipper, and padding. And I made it without a clue as to what I was doing!
Pictures may follow (if I can stop gloating long enough to take some…).
