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.

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!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
