I made quilty promises. I can almost deliver on those, LoL! I finished reading New Moon (my MIL and husband are awed...563 pages) and I actually read every word. I must admit that normally I skim pages of books here and there. I've found that most books don't require 100% of my attention or focus to read, and understand and not miss anything...even when I skim. But I thoroughly enjoyed these books so much that I read all the words. : )
I did manage to finish a handbag I have been working on since Wed. More like NOT working on! It was a long process this morning that involved getting the needle stuck in the machine, bent and through the purse. Tony had to take it apart for me but we eventually got it working and so I was able to finish (and list in my etsy shop) Purple Rain. I am on the SHE(School at Home Etsians) team and they are having an April Showers challenge. Let Rain inspire your work. I took that in a different direction than most people I guess. The rain drops appliqued across the front of this bag are actually purple satin. Prince would have it no other way, I am sure!
I started to quilt my W/U project a few minutes ago so I could post pictures of that and then realized 2 things: ONE I can't post pics because the voting for the challenge hasn't happened yet and it's supposed to be anonymous and TWO even if I posted pics of just the back it wouldn't matter since I am quilting it in a thread that blends in. So y'all will just have to be patient. :-D
It's just as well that I spent the whole day in a book since I have had such a roaring migraine that doing anything except reading has sent pain shooting through my head. My sister-in-law and her husband renewed their wedding vows today and the two hours we were out of the house for that was almost more than I could bear. Thankfully it seems to be waning so maybe it's not one of those horrendous 3 day affairs. I hope not cause I desperately need to take Jeremiah shopping for clothes! The boy suddenly has nothing that fits except a Batman Tshirt and a pair of jeans, LOL! Even socks and underwear...what the heck! : )
