Earlier this week I made use of the gift certificate my sister gave me for my birthday. Isn’t she sweet!?I’ve been watching Wildwood since Market, loving the cool colors and graphic design. The bag I have loved for a while and so I thought I would do a crisp, modern bag – because you know I need another! :) No chance for a giveaway with this one!
The yard sale this morning was decent, slight chance of rain for the morning, but I did manage to unload $60 worth of stuff. Pretty good considering I don’t hang on to much for long – no space to collect here :) The last hour has been full of big lightening and crazy winds – my girls are busy inside with a fort today. I even … Read More »
This past week I’ve been waiting. Not all that patiently I might add – you could ask Joe, he’s a good sport – thankfully :)
To ease my impatience I set to work to make a new bag for myself! There’s nothing like a new bag, to hopefully welcome spring sooner than later. . . we seem to be having a bit of a thaw at the moment here, but the piles of snow are not fast to melt.
I had won fat quarters of Anna Maria Horner’s latest line Good Folks a while back, and Beki’s pattern for the Short & Sassy Handbag – put them all together – and whalaa! A new bag that makes me smile :)
Beki’s pattern was simple and fun to create – if your in the market for a … Read More »
I had my next bag finished – but it did not look good =( I tore out two seams and now trying to figure out a different way to finish it. I had previously thought that working with cotton would be much simpler than the raw silk – wrong!I really love the fabric so I will finish, but I may need to work on a quilt that is in my head for a bit. . .
It is raining, really raining here. No kids outside, or walks today – bummer. Ella began quilting a dolly quilt this morning. She lost interest pretty quick, but will work on it soon again. I told her she is going to be a great quilter when she gets bigger, since she is learning all the stuff I am … Read More »
So I finally got around to making another bag to put in my shop! It has been on my brain since I made the original, but other items have seemed more important. I have one more cut and ready to sew just need a few hours – it is from the posh collection. So more to come, but for now the kids are calling!Click the picture to go to my shop for more pics and details.Have a great weekend!Amy
I can’t believe it has been a week since I told you about my bag experiment! It has been a bit busy around here with warm weather, (we hit 73!!!) being outside with the kiddos. Love the sunshine! Today we had our first official Thunder Storm – a good 25 minutes of grumblings. When we first moved here nearly 6 years ago – I was so frightened by these storms. I am happy to say that I was cheering for the rumble today – it is so amazing to think of how these storms are orchestrated. Wow!
On to my bag! I have determined that this will stay with me and not go in the etsy shop as my iron left a stain – you probably won’t be able to see it but I … Read More »
Hi again! Our date night last night was great! Park City in April is very quiet, (ski bum, USA) so many of the nice restaurants put 2 for 1 entree coupons in the local paper, and we ended up at Ghidotti’s. It was a very nice dinner, with excellent service – we were one of three or four couples the two hours we were there, like I said very quiet. Joe and I had a nice time just being together and enjoying a bit of peace without our lovely kids. Owen did great without me, but was super excited when I walked in the room, and then he tested me all night, making sure I was still here. =) He’s a sweet, and smart little guy.
The last few days my sewing machine has … Read More »
