I must like pink

This daylight savings time is still cramping my style. I hate it getting so dark before 5pm, and I always feel like it 3 hours later than it really is. I'm pretty sure my brain stops functioning after dark anyway. Plus it's impossible to take any quality photos.

I know I said that I was sick of sewing scarves, but Saturday found me sewing up a scarf for my giveaway winner and noticing that I had several partially finished scarves from my large order. So two more scarves it was. I finished them up this morning, and if my lazy butt ever gets around to it, they will be up on etsy.

I really spent most of the weekend working on this bag.
It's from the same fabric as this wallet and the brown leather suede accents are from a thrifted skirt. I really love the way it came out. I had originally intended to list it on etsy, but for the time that it took me to complete it, I'd have to charge a lot for it, and I'm not sure anyone would buy it. So, it'll probably end up as a Christmas gift for my MIL, although I'm not sure she really wants a pink purse. Who knows, maybe I'll just keep it for myself.

I hear ya, at 8:00 at night I'm dead tired and it feels like midnight!

Pretty scarf, I must make one of those.

I won't go into my specific issues with daylight savings darkness, but yes, it creates conflict in my life.

That purse is really hot. I mean, put that with the wallet and it's hotter than anything you'll find in the stores. And unique! It looks very designer-y and well made.

The only person who should get that purse is someone who truly appreciates the pinkness and hotness of the whole deal.

That bag is really lovely. Keep it yourself (I would!) Unless you think your MIL would love the pink.
