New Fabric

I got my new Amy Butler fabric in the mail over the weekend. I really like it. I think it will be perfect for my Kimberly bag. I also think I have enough fabric to make a skirt too.

I have been working on a few layouts for my scrapbook and here are a couple of samples.

This is my cousin and me when we were about four years old. Check out our grown-up handbags.

I would normally include a Monday Meditation when I do a post on Monday, but it's getting pretty late, and I'm getting pretty sleepy, and I have to get up at 4:15 a.m. so I think I will post my meditation tomorrow instead. I hope you all had a great weekend and are off to good start this week.

I have been extremely busy for the last few months. As I mentioned earlier I got a "huge" promotion at work and I have been in extensive training sessions. This new position will require a ginormous time commitment. But I am still very excited about the opportunity.

I know that some of you have still be checking in and seeing no activity for quite some time, but I am back now, and I really do appreciate your patience.

First off, I got a new digital camera so I am able to post some pictures. Yay! And...I have actually been doing some stuff, therefore, I have pictures ( a lot of pictures) to share.

I hosted an All-Day Craft Day at my home about a month ago. We did scrap booking, card making, crocheting, machine embroidery, machine and hand knitting, quilling, quilting and jewelry making. I thought it would be a great way to introduce some new comers to the exciting world of crafting. It turned out that everyone had a great time, and each person was addicted to scrapping by the time they left.

There was one attendee who was bitten by the sewing bug, so I am giving her lessons. I will be posting her first completed project sometime next week. Please stay tuned.

I did manage to sew a dress for myself. It just needs to be hemmed and ironed. The fabric is a painted knit. I love the colors and it's lightweight enough to wear throughout the spring a during most of the summer.

Next up, is the Kimbery Bag by Amy Butler. Is this not the cutest little bag? I ordered my fabric and it should be here shortly.

Perhaps I will make this quick, summery dress in the meantime. I will do an embroidered border and neckline instead of beads.

I think that's enough for now. Thanks again for not forgetting about me.
