New Bag for myself!


This bag is for me! I like it pretty well, and it goes with my spring coat. I had some trouble with one of the seems and that prompted me to keep it for myself (a perk of messing up!) I used just fabric scraps and part of one of my neckties and a button to dress up the side of the bag.

So anyway, I painted my kitchen & ceiling, and now on to the hall. I plan to stripe the hall like this.

So my week is filled and Sophia's quilt is coming along nicely. I will not post photos of it until the top is done. I think I have something like 6 squares to embroider yet, and a few to piece. The goal was to have the top finished by the end of March, so I will get a move on, only 7 days to go. Still so much stinkin' snow here, that I have no problem staying indoors!

Fabulous bag! I can't wait to see the 'after' photos of your kitchen and the hallway. How are you doing with Sophia's quilt?
