Shopping Bags & Skirts

Yesterday I finished two more bags. One is a shopping bag made from the extra fabric that my sister used for her kitchen curtains about ten years ago.

The other bag is a cute little purse that I made out of an old wool skirt. It is lined with a scrap of a pretty toille of black and white.

Pink Denim Purse

I finished a purse today. I made it out of an old pair of Gap jeans and some scrap fabric from my sister. It has a phone pocket on the back, a pocket inside, 3 of Amy's crocheted flowers and a velcro closure.


It turned out cute and fun!


One Down, Lots To Go

Well, I am done with one item that I can take to the bazaar in a couple of weeks.

It's not perfect (they rarely are), but I think it turned out pretty well. Those puppies are just so darned cute!

Puppy Progress

I am finally getting somewhere further than thinking about it with a sewing project...

I love these guys! And they are pretty easy, too.

Will I Ever Sew Again?

I started getting ready to make a quilt on Friday night when everyone was gone, but I am beginning to fear I will never sew again. For some reason I just have not had time to do it lately and I really miss it. I also need to get some done because I am doing a bazaar in November with my friend Sally.

everything is ready to go...

I made this quilt while we were in Rolette.

I am going to try to make another one for the bazaar.

It's one of my favorite quilts!

Last week I went to JoAnn's for their Columbus Day sale ( I won't do that again) and got some stuff that I needed, and some that I didn't. I picked up 4 patterns on sale for 99 cents each. Some of them were regularly over $15 each!

Well, we'll see what happens now that the weather is getting cooler...
