I had spent some time in my quilt room the other night, and when I came out my husband said, "So were you making a bag?" I just laughed and said, "Yes, how did you know?!" To which he repied, "Well you're going to a quilt show on Saturday and you always make a new bag when you go to a quilt show!" Now that is a husband who knows me better than I know myself!
I've had these woolens that were just calling out to be made into a bag. I rather fancied the idea of a purse made with the soft wool and some modern Kaffe fabric, so that is just what I did. When I showed my hubby, he said, "No it's not you - too conservative". Then I flipped it open and said, "Oh really?!"Even the flowers on the front got the Kaffe treatment...Yes, the outside is rather conservative for me, but the inside is thoroughly me. It's just the right size to hold my phone, camera, breath mints, lipstick, and the pocket is perfect for money and cards.At first I made it with a long shoulder strap... (I just want to flick that white thing out of the way!)... but it just wasn't quite right, so off came the long strap. The short one is much better.And now for something completely different... I know some people are already decorating for Christmas, but it's still Fall ...and I refuse to put up Christmas decorations until December! So pumpkins it is:)
And onto something simple but exciting (hey it doesn't take much to make my day!)...hubby came home the other day with a pizza stone for me. A friend at his work had a Pampered Chef party, but we couldn't make it. Unbeknownst to me he ordered the large pizza stone. That was a great surprise for me, and it makes the best crust on my bread, and pizza too! Yum!
