i enjoy ncaa softball, very much. and today the women's college world series gets underway with the eight teams advancing from the super regionals meeting in oklahoma city. fun! espn will carry the games beginning at 1 pm eastern time. holy toledo, charlie brown. women's sports. on television. what a breath of fresh air!
ok, so now you know a little something more about me other than just my bag and apron fetish. :)
but, as this is a blog primarily devoted to sewing, there IS some sewing going on in between my other creative obsessions and distractions.
i made my mom an everyday bag by favorite things some time late last year. recently, mom had a friend visit and she shared with her my sewing projects (several bags and aprons I made for mom and my oldest sister). the next thing i know, mom is calling me, asking if i would make an everyday bag for her friend as a gesture of thanks for the visit and because she absolutely loved my work. i took this as a very big compliment because mrs. g sews, professionally. super smiles!
of course i said yes!
so, here it is, hanging in my closet to "set" the fusible fleece i like to use as the interlining.
in the back and behind are my other bags, including my adorable buttercup, handy, accessible, so i can grab the perfect bag for the perfect date.
i've the handles, button, button loop and lining to work on...taking my time so i don't get in a hurry, enjoy the process and do nice stitching. yeah.
i'll post pictures of the finished bag and details soon after i'm done.
rock the day, everyone, whether sun or rain, summer or winter. creative moments are eternal sunshine.
