Directionally Challenged!

Yesterday I took a purse class with a friend…..so fun to hang out with her and make a cute purse!009

There’s my directionally challenged thing…. my bunting flags are flying sideways.   Even so,  I love this purse, and it was so fun to make. The outside bottom part is p010ockets all around and here’s a peek at  the inside….MORE POCKETS!!!!   I have fabric cut to do another now that I know what I’m doing!!!

Even though it’s not officially summer here, it sure feels like it.  We have had temps in the high 80’s and The Dots have started swimming 002 lessons…..there’s Big Dot getting arm instructions!!!!  Such a weird glare in my picture.  On the days the boys are here, I cheer on our big guy and papa and Little Dot do the lesson together.  We love our time with the boys so much.

One of these days I will surprise you all and actually get back to quilting, but for now we are enjoying lots of family time, and of course getting ready for the upcoming wedding.  Hugs to you all!

Cute bag Cheryl. I have only made one handbag, and it was quite a challenge, so I'm not sure I would ever make another one ;-)

What a fun picture of the dots sittin' on the edge of the pool! Your purse is cute... so what if the flags are flying sideways... it was probably very windy the day you made it! :)

That's the beauty of buntings -- they can fly any way that you want them too. Have a great time with the Dots this summer!
