Born, raised and lived in Kansas all my life. Then in November of 2007, my husband and I moved to the east coast. My husband's dream has been to renovate an old house. So, here we are in a house built in 1890 and we work hard to keep it from falling down around our ears. Sometimes I wonder, "What were we thinking!?"
My blog is about what is happening in my life as I adjust to living in the south, adjust to being an empty nester, adjust to menopause, adjust to being a grandma...
Brr! I hope you are staying warm. This has been a good week to stay inside.
Hubs and I have managed to get the Christmas tree undressed and to the curb. I have also managed to get a few of the other Christmas decorations piled in the dining room, but seem to be in no hurry to get all the decorations gathered and repacked. There is next week...
I have been enjoying time at the sewing machine. This week I have been working on a couple of handbags to display at my friend's quilt shop. This pink bag is too cute! It would be a great little Valentine's gift. The grommets are plastic drapery grommets and they were so easy to use.
Here is a close up of the pretty beaded trim.
The other bag is an X bag; so named because of the way it forms an X when it is put together. This is the fourth X bag I've made as I did three others for Christmas.
Here is a closer look at the fabric.
