The results of sewing room time

I ‘made’ myself spend the weekend sewing. Yes, forced myself – simply refused to let myself do anything else. I’m disciplined huh? πŸ™‚

Well, it’s lovely to finish projects. I made myself a new purse, more like a small tote, with some discontinuted fabric samples Mike brought home for me. I found the pattern here



Then I created {Penelope}


She is going to the US Davis Infusion Center, as a result of a SAL at CFAC, a charity group I’m involved with. Shannon named her Penelope, as I had no idea what to call it, I really have no idea what it is – but it makes you smile.


I also crocheted some Octopussessesssesss….. um… Octopie? I’m not entirely sure of the plural, but they’re weird little creatures too πŸ™‚

And some coloring rolls


These things are so fun to make, it’s like playing for me πŸ™‚

Do you ever hear someone on TV say something that just makes you go, “Whaaaaaaa?” Well, here is my favorite of last week – “It’s hard to sweep if you lose the first game.” – Al Hrovbosky (not sure of spelling) Just think on it a bit, you won’t figure it out. lol….

Have a lovely week!

    Hi! Love how creative you were with your tote! It’s so pretty! Thank you for sharing the link to my free pattern as well. I am trying to find some time to put together a Flickr album of totes people have made from the pattern and would love to include yours. I don’t have the page made yet, but will contact you when I put it together to see if you would like your blog and image linked to it! Keep creating, I love all your creations!
