Mother's Day Aftermath - Part 1


Flowers and cake, that's a staple of Mother's Day! Very yummy! The poor flowers didn't even get real water. Stuck in this sponge, some of them don't look so good. I made lots of pictures of the nice looking ones. Roses are so beautiful, and so are all the others.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I did. You probably think I'm nuts, but I used Saturday and Sunday to - sew! Ahem, yes, and I made a few things, which would be too much for one post, so I'll feed you the results in small doses.
As I was cruising through blogland, I found a cute little bag. Thankfully a link was provided so I could get my stuff together for my very own # 1 Tiny Happy Bag!
Melissa of Tiny Happy is providing a tutorial for this cute little hand bag. Thanks Melissa!




As I said, this is # 1, I made a second one. This one's for Hannah, if she likes it. She liked the fabric of this one. But I'm doubtfull about the lining I've used. When I bought the outer fabric, I thought I would have something for the inside for sure, but looking through my meager fabric (not even) stash, it was hard to come up with something fitting. Anyway, I choose this one, so be it. There's a pocket inside, made with the outer fabric. I'm very excited about lining stuff. You'll see what I mean in my next posts.
Oh, and if you came here to see some knitting, you'll have to go and come back in a few days. There will be knitting content, I promise! ;o)






You wont believe what this little baggy can swallow! Here it's filled almost to the brim. There is a Spin-Off magazine, a book, a notebook, my wallet, a punch of keys, tissues, my little good luck charm (marzipan piggy), and chewing gum. There would have been some space left for my camera, but that's hard to do - taking a picture of your camera, while using it! ;o) Not that I always carry a book and a magazine around with me.

Looksie here! My very first mini skein! A whooping 21 yds of BFL, after fixing the (over) twist. Doesn't it look pretty? You probably can click the pictures to have a closer look. Sometimes not all of them work, I don't know why.


And what's a post without at least one dog picture? Here's Sam waiting for a command, he never knows what I'll be asking of him next. See how he is wondering? He looks funny when sitting. He's very uncomfortable doing so, he rather lys down, but for a short while he can do it.


Part 2 coming up soon ...

oh! That bag is so cute! and perfect! I wanted to make something just like that and got all my fabric out this weekend but couldn't find a pattern I like. This one is perfect, hopefully I'll find time to make it in the next two weeks!
