New style

I thought I'd wear these to work when I get home !!! All right they are really for Eliza, from great grandma Marge and aunt Connie.

Origami Bags

We had fun making these bags, they only take two fat quarters. I need to make a mock up of one for my niece Becky, she wants to make some to sell in her store. We are either sewing or cooking, but oh what fun. I'm coming away with a lot of new recipes from my sister Connie. Now I'm working on a Grommet Bag for a sample to take to Paducah. Trying to make good use of my time while Mom naps. We don't want to miss a minute with her.

I was able to leave the house today evan though they sent my Mom home from the hospital . With people dropping in it was a little crowded. Jim took me for a ride to a resale shop, my other passion. I found these wonderful goodies for my house. I am a sucker for anything black. I think the bucket was for coal, so it is going by my fireplace when I get home. When I get it all placed and pretty I will take pics. Sewing has been stalled for a few days till we could get mom home. My sister Connie has a project to finish for Martha Pullan and I still have samples to make for Paducah. Oh well !!!!!

Snap happy

My sisters and I made lots of snap bags mostly for my Mom's friends. Connie put their names on and Frankie quilted them. Mom was very proud to be able to give these to her friends. She loved to watch us sew and tell jokes. It is a memory I will hold in my heart forever.
