Here's a little tidbit of information for ya....I am a bonified purse nut....a purse maven, officionado, buff, er (cough)...you get the idea...I just LOVE 'em. Anywho, here is the absolute nicest bag I have ever had, a birthday gift from my family a couple of years ago.
I'm not able to share exactly how many handbags I own, it would be difficult to count and, uh, somewhat embarassing....but, lest you think I'm a fanatic, I think it's around twenty. Not all new, mind you....I tend to hang onto my purses far longer that I should, and there are some I never use anymore. A few are kept for "sentimental reasons," and a few because I think "I may use that one again." One good thing is, all my bags are NOT Coaches. Most are sale buys in the $25 dollar range. A person could be known for a much less redeeming passion, right?
On the homefront, dust is lurking everywhere and the laundry is piling up. I took a 45 minute nap today, which is a rare occurrence in these parts. Lack of sleep and a ringing alarm at 5:00 a.m. are the culprits. Alas, I am refreshed now and will get crackin' right after dinner....which is meatloaf, pasta and salad. Sidenote: I typically make some sort of potatoes with my meatloaf, but due to said nap I had to switch gears. I don't think they'll mind.
Here's an apron I made for a friend's daughter's bridal shower. The bride is a baker, and her mom told me she is already using it and loving it. This is not my kind of apron...I prefer an old-fashioned one...but this pattern went together nicely. I used a heavier duck kind of fabric with calico for the trim. I have a couple of pieces similar to this material set aside to make kitchen towels for upcoming birthday gifts.
Tonight I am helping my daughter Emily make a dress for a wedding on Saturday. Yes, I know, this is so "last minute." Tell someone they are a blessing to you. My Emily is my blessing, procrastination and all. I love you, Honey.
