You Can Never Have Too Many Purses or Shoes!

There's a little giveaway goin' on!
This purse was made by Jillian...
aka darling DIL.
She is getting back to blogging and also started
a little Etsy business selling her bags. To kick off the
new business she is having a giveaway on her blog.

JRae Designs... so please go on over her and give her a warm welcome and say hello!
And of course, enter the giveaway! (do you see the little yoyo's in the top corner of the purse?- too cute)
The giveaway ends August 13th!!!

I have been on bad terms with my Pfaff. I'll admit that the machine takes a lot of abuse even though it's always there for me... it puts in long hours and I don't clean it often enough, and yet it still works hard.  
Yesterday, however it stopped. Stopped dead in it's tracks. Now, I didn't think it couldn't be revived. But I was going to have to access the brains of some wonderful man... but luckily I happen to be married to him and he was right there to rescue me. At least there was a temporary fix. A band aide on the wound.
The problem?
My foot petal connection has lost it's connection.
No gas. No go.
The hubs has me up and running now... but... keep your fingers crossed!


I have plans.

Things I want to work on.

Shop samples I get to make.

I love this pattern by Thimble Blossoms...
Picnic Roll-Up.
and this one... Marmalade!

My wheels are turning... better than my sewing machines' anyway!

Cute cute bag! I'll have to hop on over. And I too love that picnic roll-up. I'll need to get the pattern and make it for myself. But I don't know if I would have the heart to actually use it on the GROUND! LOL!
