Mod Floral Pink Marjorie

I've been working on a bag order for about the past week and a half. I've been pretty busy with work, so I have been eager to get home get to my sewing machine. I really like how this bag turned out. The recipient wanted a sash that could be tied in a bow at the base of the strap. I think it is a cute touch. I really hope she likes it!

This weekend we also had a wonderful dinner with friends. We celebrated St. Patrick's Day with a feast of lamb, corned beef, potatoes, veggies and yorkshire puddings. It was nice to have a fancy 'grown up' meal. Now I'm off for more sewing! My next bag is a bit on the 'Wild Side.'

Hello Dahlia

I worked on a bag this weekend to try out some new stuff for some incoming orders. I am thinking I will sell this one. I love the color contrast.

I used Hello Dahlia Vera Bradley fabric for the lining. My bags wouldn't be complete with a bunch of interior slot pockets.

The back has a usable pocket too! The owner can switch out the patches to suit them.

I have the GREATEST husband!

My birthday was this week and although my husband is involved in a large training exercise he was still able to pull off a great birthday dinner date and a surprise party! My birthday was on Thursday, so we went to a fabulous Bulgarian style dinner at a great restaurant, Zelen's. I received two 'coupons' as my gift. One is a trip fabric shopping! WooHoo! The other is to order the new iPad 2!

I think I will get the white with the pink cover. I have to wait until March 11th to order.

On Friday, my great friend and surprise party co-conspirator took me out shopping. When we returned back home to meet up with the boys for a birthday couples dinner, I entered the apartment to a large "SURPRISE," and the greatest group of friends/co-workers were all present. I learned that we were initially meant to meet up in the shopping area at a restaurant, but due to the exercise my husband couldn't go out. It was a great evening together with friends. I truly am blessed with the greatest husband and friends!
