Back to sewing!



I have been down with a bronchial type flu for more than a week now. Yesterday I finally felt better and well enough to get back in the cave and sewing. A big blogpost was planned about sewing the inset corners of my bag and my camera died. It's the cheap replacement camera I purchased upon the death of my treasured and relatively old DSLR.  I will be shopping today and maybe will see how generous Santa wants to be. I have tried to be a good girl!

In the meantime I have also been making beads. I stopped my bagmaking at the inset corner point so I could do some pics for the blogpost with a new camera and switched gears to jewelry. I got a cute necklace completed. I've been having fun making more ribbon beads, paper beads and some fabric Pandora type beads. Today will be Christmas shopping in the big city fifty miles away but hopefully we will get an early start and back in time to churn out a few more beads or put another necklace or bracelet together. Pics coming, promise. Just a matter of time!

My brother found a picture of my Mom and me at birth that I have never seen. I thought I would share. I love that she put on her makeup for the photo.


Happy Sewing!...................Bunny

  2. You see? If there's no photo it didn't happen ;-) What a lovely photo of your Mum and you. She looks so young, even with the glorious lipstick.

    1. She was twenty years old. I think there is a terrific resemblance with my profile photo in the hat, sort of eerie but nice.

    2. Ern is in hold pattern as we continue this journey. Today he goes for an MRI. Next week he sees a hematologist/oncologist and we will go from there. The big issue is the daily pain he is dealing with. One day at atime. Thanks for asking.
