I just finished up this tote/bag for a good friend of mine and embroidered her business name (in bright pink) on the side....it's a surprise so I have photographed the other side. Don't want to spoil it for her....shhhhhh.
Hope she likes it....will be an early Christmas present.
Watching Grey's Anatamony...gotta run. Are you enjoying the new shows this week? Finally, new shows....yippee!!!
October 4th, I will be attending the Crop for the Cure sponsored by Hilltop Memories. You can check out details on their website at: www.hilltopmemories.com
This is the bag that I am donating for the cause.
Both my grandmothers had breast cancer and my dad's wife passed away a couple years ago with the horrible disease. I embroidered the words "Celebrate Courage" in honor of the courage of these ladies and all woman battling breast cancer.

Happy Monday to all of you.
I am finally feeling pretty good. I came down with some kind of little bug last week and felt a little under the weather for several days and for those of you that know me well....I don't do sick very good....LOL. I get REAL grumpy....lol. I suppose it is because I have never been one to sit still. I always have to be doing something.
Today was a fairly productive day. I have several new totes started and finished up another Gator bag, still have 4 to go....lots of people out there LOVE their GATORS :-) I also finished this cute little brown/green doggie tote and have another almost finished...look for more pics in the next day or so.
I have teamed up with a dear friend of mine, Helen, who is very involved with the Small Paws Rescue and we will be making some cash donations as well as a bag that will be donated for an event in October.
Take care and make this Monday....MARVELOUS!!!!!!

It seems that I needed to take a week off from the sewing machine and "regroup". People always told me that when you retire, you seem to be so busy you can't imagine how you ever had time to work in the first place...LOL....yep, it's true!!!
Well, I am somewhat back on a schedule now and was able to finish up two bags this morning. One is for a dear friend and the brown/black one is looking for a home :-)
Back to the sewing machine...have so many projects that I am dreaming about....until next time.......

It's been a few days..sorry about that.
First of all, GREAT NEWS....my step-father had a heart procedure today and it went well....yippee.
I have spent the last couple of days trying to get things put away from the weekend and doing some things around the house. I finished up a couple totes that I started last week (that are orders) and also finished up a UFO (sewing people use that term for unfinished objects). Some of you remember the I SPY quilt that I posted a while back that I was working on...well...I finished it last night. I love the way it turned out. The grandkids are going to love to play I spy with this. It's kind of like looking for Waldo...they love to do that too.
I went to a weekend scrapbook event (Hoe Down) in Bonita Springs, Florida last weekend and had a BLAST. We surely were treated like the queens of the rodeo for sure. The classes were awesome and my partner for the weekend, Janie was a great companion as well.
I will be joining some of the ladies again on Saturday for a day of cropping in Sarasota....it's always great fun to spend the day (or weekend) with Hilltop ladies :-)

From my design studio today, I have a special request by a friend, this bag was designed to hold a Bind-it-all (which is a desktop wire binding system used by scrapbookers and stampers) and especially the wires and tools that go along with it. The bag is 12 x 12 and 6 inches deep. It has front and back pockets and two end pockets. The inside divider is attached by velcro and added to seperate the boxes of wires form the machine. The divider can easily be removed if an open tote is desired.
I have a couple more projects planned for the week...just just hope that the week doesn't run out on me first.
