I designed a cut and sew pattern for this week’s Spoonflower contest. If you really have nothing to do, please sign up and vote for mine. It’s this one:
The day I moved here, literally, they closed the public swimming pool for renovations. After 4 long years without a single lap, it reopened last winter, and I’m finally getting back to my old swimming self.
I had forgotten how much I love it. I have a year ticket and I’ve been swimming the hell out of it lately. I made this little bag: it holds exactly what I need and nothing more: flip-flops, towel, swimsuit, goggles, cap. and it will be perfect to bring with me to the university so I can stop at the pool on my way back home.
It has a special band where I can attach my bracelet. (Opens the turnstiles and locks the lockers). Does it have a name? anyway.
Large front pocket. For my phone mostly.
Inner pocket with velcro closure. For my keys.
The shoulder strap is short, perhaps a bit too short. But it’s quite comfy to carry. I’ m guessing in winter with swaters and coats it won’t be large enough to put my arm through…. I might fix that when the time comes. Ok, now I’m off to the pool!! bye.

And now I’m home alone! Michele took the kids on a camping trip so I can study for my Film History exam due in September. I can’t believe it. I’m alone, in my house. I miss them, sure, but… How fucking cool!
Our amazing holiday in Lanzarote came to an end and it was a real shock. For the first time after a 2 week vacation I wasn’t missing my home. Anyway, now we recovered, and are enjoying our now traditional August at home. I’m trying to tank up on my kids, because I know that come October I’ll miss them horribly and I’ll have guilt for leaving them so many hours a day so many days a week when my 3rd semester starts. We’ve been doing lots of things, mostly craftulence and playgrounds. We found one with a comando slide and now you can imagine where they want to go ALL THE TIME.
I’ve been quite busy in the evenings when they’re asleep getting ready for a couple of exams I have to sit in September, and also designing things, mostly fabrics for my shop.
This one here was featured in the Spoonflower home page:
I also designed these two versions of a circus theme for their upcoming fabric contest. I’m undecided which colorway to enter with.
Tulip field version.
Anyway, I’m addicted to Illustrator and all this designing and sewing has taken a toll on my posture and bum, I can’t wait for this beauty I just got myself for my unbirthday to arrive:
