Let me begin with thanks to our fearless leaders, Katherine of Sew Me Something Good and Madame Samm. Also thanks to all of the contributors to this great hop.
I am writing this on Sunday evening and setting it up for release on my day, Wednesday.
We live in central New Jersey, and while Sandy was here and has left us without electricity that is all the inconvienience she has caused us. We and our families are very fortunate in this regard. We are scattered all over the NY/ NJ metro area and while we are not happy due to the electricity issues and minimal property damage, thank God everyone of us is OK.
Holy cow, we have power, It's 8:15 on Sunday. We lost power Monday at 8:56, thats 41 minutes short of a week without power.
If my power on my lap top holds I will be back to add the other participants for today.(DONE) If they don't show up, please forgive me, I'll give it my best shot.
So on with the show.
When I first heard about this hop I just had to make this little purse, here is the front
and here is the back.
I made it for my niece's birthday to go with her birthday goodies from last years Ghastlies Hop.
It fits in so well.
then I had these great purple scraps that I thought would make a great little purse
went to take a second artsie picture but my ever faithful assistant put the cobash on that, they do have very cute bottoms don't they.
Last year I made myself a plaid, wool bag. I still had some scraps and I thought I'd try them out.
I love this little guy.
Here they both are. The assistant is just waiting to pounce. It is a good thing that she is cute.
So now that I tried wool, how about trying corduroy?
I was just as happy with it as with the wool so I thought that I would make a bag to match it.
And then the lights went out. This is a far as I got before my sewing machine became a table decoration instead of my best friend.
So here is my line up. Cute as can be and such fun to make.
Sew now please go and visit all of todays other contributers.
