Rain = no internet

For some silly reason when it rains here our Internet goes out. We got about 4 inches of rain in the last few days so our Internet has been out. It finally came back late this afternoon. More rain is in the forecast so we will see if the Internet continues to stay working. I did find out that this time the tower got struck by lightning so this time it wasn't the damp. It did take a long time for them to be able to climb the tower because of the wind.

This week I have made about 7 feed sack tote bags and two feed sack purses. I gave the purses to the neighbor lady who is a teacher and will be my guinea pig. I made one purse lined and one unlined. I liked the unlined purse and she did too. She is going to give me feedback about the bags so I can make any improvements we come up with.

Tomorrow I am going to try a new idea with the feed sacks. I am going to make an apron with a feed sack. It will be easily washable and waterproof. I saw some on Etsy for $22.50. I think that's a little high but I will have to have some expense involved because it will have to have seam binding I think.

Its suppose to get down to 29 degrees here so we will leave the kitchen sink dripping and the cabinet doors to the water open. Wednesday I washed up the laundry because I knew it was going to get cold and rainy again.

I need to think of more things I can make with feed sacks. Any ideas?

I want to see more pictures! Ideas... hmmm.... Book coveres, place mats, diaper bags (with pockets) Muddy boot mats (like a place to put them when you come in,) table runners, knitting needle cases, crochet hook cases, crayon roll-ups, sit-upons - something we made in Girl Scouts years ago so we could sit on the ground and not get damp and they were a little padded with newspapers. If I think of anything else, I'll let you know.
