Bag Lady

Here are a few more ways I spent my winter
I started off into my first quilting project by making bags.  I was so "anal" with the first one it was not even funny!  I was so afraid I would cut something wrong & ruin it.  I have since found that anything can be fixed.  These bags take 6 fat quarters & the pattern is from this book
The next group of bags I made I gained more confidence & found ways to make them more efficiently & even made matching key fobs & cell phone cases
Then I got very creative because I wanted to use some charm squares I had bought.  This is a Robert Kaufman Oriental Traditions that I just love.  I had bought the charm squares a while ago in both blue & red & was able to find some of the fabric in that collection to use for the lining & handles.  I also changed the size of the bag so I could use the squares.
I made this cute little bag for Jessie from a Riley Blake Lost & Found fabric & this pattern.  I did modify a little by padding the handles & adding the tab closure
Then I decided to make it for myself but wanting a bigger bag I changed the dimensions.
 Another slightly different version size-wise.. also added a magnetic closure to both of these. .


  1. You need to design a "man's" version of the bag, maybe something with tools or sports emblems.

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
