Looking for time

I love lists...written lists but mostly mental lists. Things that I want to get, things that I want to make, things that I want to see...things that I need to do. Making a little project, any project, with my sewing machine was part of every mental lists that I made. Sadly, it seems that there are not enough hours in a day. However, I decided that sometimes you just HAVE TO MAKE time in order to be happy. This little tea wallet is my first sewing project in more than a month. It was about time! Next on my list: answering the lovely comments that I got over the past two weeks. Ok, make it three weeks!

I love the tea wallet!! I could definitely use one of these since I've often had long-forgotten teabags floating around the bottom of my bag after taking them to school or work--even 'made' tea in my bag on a rainy day..hehe.

love the tea wallet! i'm one of those people that packs tea bags for trips... if i don't have at least one cup of black tea in the morning i am a mess. nothing is worse than finding your only tea option is something fruity and caffeine-free! i need a tea wallet. :)

The tea wallet is brilliant! I must make one for myself, pronto...

I love it — a tea wallet! What a brilliant idea. I especially love the birdie fabric inside, so cute. I too am a list maker. My husband makes fun of my grocery lists because I do them in order of sections in the grocery store (produce, dairy, bakery etc.). I also agree — sometimes you have to make the time to do things that make you happy. So true.

You have the best fabric stash around! I agree sometimes you just have to make time to create. If I go to long all those ideas start poking me in the ribs and generally pestering me until I do something.
