Another one bites the dust...

So this I whipped this purse out in about 2 hours. I learned a lot from the first one and used the same pattern again. I did make some changes however. I put an inside pocket to hold, keys, your cell phone, an ipod... and I used a heavier weight fusible web which makes the bag more durable. I love making these purses, they are "sew" cute. I have another polka dot bag in the making... one a day I'm doing pretty good: )

Flower Power!

One beautiful site we get to see only for a short time each year is our cherry tree in bloom. It's so cool to watch it change all year long. I'm excited for the cherries, they were a little tart last year and I didn't do anything with them. I'll have to search for some good recipes...

Besides the cherry tree we also have a huge rose bush in the front yard. It's grown outta control but I really don't want to cut it, I kinda like the crazy rose bush look. Flowers are everywhere in my yard, thank you previous owner!

Weed pulling is definitely in need for my yard. We bought our house last March 06', and I've determined yard work = hard work. I've been lazy, but we were lucky enough to get a house with a very decent yard already. I have several things in mind; mural in our back yard, and tiny mushroom tables. I was watching HGTV and saw a lady make awesome toadstool table and chair set. I've recruited a friend and we are ready to get them made.

Pokey Dot

Wow, this one was fast. It took me about 5 hours to complete this purse. I had to piece the handles but, you can hardly tell. I'm just restarting my sewing hobby, which means I had to call mom twice to really understand what the pattern was telling me to do. Over all I'm very happy with the end result. I was very patient for once and it turned out great!

I've been bitten by the inspiration bug and have decided to try to make some items to sell on . My sister has her own shop,, and has inspired me to give something new a chance. I'm a very creative person, and I'm hoping others enjoy my talent.

So I'm finally getting my act together. I started on a purse today and its looking really cute. I'm not sure yet if I will keep my first purse or give it to my friend. This is pretty exciting for me.
