I'm finally getting around to posting photos of the bags I've made. The lavender bag is for my mother. The pink one is the first of that style I made and has a few minor flaws I was able to fix in the lavender one. I'm very pleased at how they turned out. I'm not sure if I've got the strap to long though but I think that if a person is a bit taller such as my mother then it would be the perfect length. This bag is the perfect size to carry a book in. I often carry it to church with my Bible in it.
The last photo is one I took of Lily this morning. If you look closely at her paw, it is a little yellow. Yesterday I was finishing painting my bedroom and she decided she had to come help me. Needless to say my carpets got a good shampooing yesterday to. HA!
Lily just wanted to spend time with me. I thought I had the door shut but it wasn't latched. Of course she couldn't come in and just be good, she had to run right into my paint....and back out of it onto the carpet. She can be so naughty sometimes. :)

On another note, I'm posting a picture of my complete closet. It looks so fresh and organized! I'm very happy with it. Not bad for only spending $120.00 on it.

My sister sent me a package a couple weeks ago. I was able to pick it up at the post office after waiting a week for a blizzard to end. I was so excited to go get it and had waited so long! I picked it up just in time as the next day another blizzard came in. My sister and her kids spoil me. I have been busy sewing kitchen curtains, painting and other various projects around the house. My house is a mess right now. I'm currently having to pull everything out of our closet so that we can put new shelving in. What is in there now collapsed in November...guess it was time to spend the money so that I would have someplace to put my clothes besides the floor ! Ha ! I'll have to post photos of my projects soon!
They always include peanut butter pretzels from Trader Joes. I could live off these things and they only last about two days before I have them eaten up. Now I'm working on eating up the granola she sent me. She makes the best homemade granola in the world!
Some of the things that they included in the package. There was a lot for my kitchen and I love the cleaning gloves that are so pretty! She got those at my favorite store, Target.
She is good at stuffing the box full! A lot of it was wrapped in green tissue paper so I would have fun opening it. What a good time it came while I was stuck inside for so long.
My box before I took it all out. I love the articles and magazines she sends.
