I didn't blog last night because when Tony got off work at 10:30pm he called and said that his supervisor was taking whoever wanted to go to Shoney's for the breakfast buffet because they ran more parts than day shift by a couple hundred and did we want to come meet him? You'd think I hadn't fed either kid all day because they packed away bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, fruit, salad, everything!
There wasn't a block for yesterday but I did do some sewing: I made a little girl bag. This one isn't going into my etsy shop because I have a better plan for it. I am thinking of making maybe 2 or 3 of these to take to the craft show I'm going to be doing on May. This is getting difficult to decide what to make/take. I don't want to take so much that I look stupid sitting around surrounded by bags, but I want to take enough that if they sell well (I pray!) that I don't run out, ya know? Hmm...must ponder some more, but not right now. Still too sleepy.
I thought I would share with y'all THE Bag that started it all. About a year ago my sister Diantha had her 13th birthday and I couldn't figure out what to get/give her. I had been working on a baby quilt made entirely from batik fabrics and I picked up some scraps and this is what I came up with. I appliqued a rhinestone "D" on the front and a little star burst on the back. She's never washed the bag but I am still amazed and impressed with the iron-on rhinestones since I have seen the kind of abuse this bag has suffered and the rhinestones still are hanging on! I took this bag and filled it with eyeshadow, make up remover, lip gloss, lotion, nail polish and some makeup applicator pads and boy was it a great hit!
