Thank you for all the sweet comments and emails on my last post. I read each and every comment and it makes me feel better. I think that the cemetery owner and I have come to an "understanding" as I will say :)
He has made other people mad as well and I have not been the only person to complain.
Oh well on to other things. I have been doing some sewing and I can't post some of what I have made because some of the recipients read my blog. Jennifer knows I am making a wedding quilt for the bride and groom and I have "fussy cut" so many squares .... like 150 squares. I will post a little of it when I have more of it completed.
I just don't want Jennifer to see it!
The other day I was in my closet trying to organize a little and saw this bag I carried last summer. So many people have stopped me and wanted to know where I bought it and I told them I made it. I thought I would share it with you.
I had purchased the embroidery CD from Loralie and embroidered the lady with her flowers. People say it looks like me. LOL I do love to garden and look at that big hat... I do not have one like it but it would be fun to make one to wear like it to work in my yard! But I sweat too much or as we say in the South we southern gals "glisten". I am a GRITS... that's short for "Girls Raised in the South".
I decided to make a tote bag and took my embroidered piece to my local quilt shop and they helped me pick out the fabric to coordinate with it. It looks as if the fabric was made for the embroidery. It was just fun to put together. I have carried this bag everywhere and it holds everything! Every gal needs a large tote bag!
Oh well I need to go and sew. I have a ringbearer's pillow to make. Jennifer saw one in a bride's magazine she liked and I am making one similar to it. Very simple ... they only wanted $95 for it! We purchased everything to make it for less than $10. I am go glad I can sew!!
Thanks for visiting!
