Weekend Updates!!

A while back I posted about a bag swap I was Hosting. Ended up swapping with two people (odd number of swappers). One of the bags came this week. I got this beautiful bag (and extra material) from Krystal at Sol Sisters. The bag is amazing!! The fabrics are wonderful (I love green!) and it's the perfect size. The sewing is just perfect, can you tell I love it? Krystal has a wonderful shop on Etsy with many different types of bags. Please have a look at her shop! Here are some pics of my bag.





I sold my first "Surprise Package"!! Someone purchased the $2.50 package, her favorite color is blue, so this is what I made and sent her.






Mother's Day
Tomorrow is Mother's Day. Don't you think we should get a long weekend? We've earned it!! I was supposed to come up with something for us to do. Our oldest is not home this weekend, the closest ATV derby is 2 hours away, so I am at a loss as to what we should do. What are you doing for Mother's Day?

  9. So glad you like the bag, Audrey! It was fun to make for you and a chance to work with different colors than I usually favor.

    I just finished this bag. What do you all think?
