new day, new laptop sleeve

today, i start my new job working with a local designer of custom made shoes...  i will need to bring my laptop with me, so i made a new sleeve...  i used this tutorial & pattern from sew mama sew.  it was very easy to make, only took a couple of hours.  i really like how it turned out.  i especially like the fabric designed by tim coffey.

thanks for coming by & reading! hope you have a productive tuesday! :)

so...  i bit the bullet and went to one of those not so expensive chain haircut places....

i was hoping to look like this when i came out: slowly realizing that i may or may not look more like this:

ooooooh yeeeeaaaaah....


if there was any story i desperately needed to see/hear last night...  it was this one:


God bless you and your family Steelo!  Whenever I lose patience with my slow healing, I will watch you!  Best wishes for a complete recovery!
