bags, bags & more bags...

It's been a month of sewing for me, and sadly, not a month of posting. Thanks to all who are still visiting my little corner of the web!

And now, a bag or two to share with you...

sew her style...

My youngest, Julianna, knows what she likes. She's not a girlie girl. She won't be swayed. An example of this was swimsuit shopping. It took more than 5 hours and two countries to find the one, and believe me when we found it, I didn't even care what it cost!

Julianna has had long, thick, curly hair all her life. We tried cutting bangs once and it didn't go so well, haha.
She was my ponytail girl - every single day - until a couple weeks ago. Now, she's my beachy head girl. I love it on her, but more importantly, she loves it.
She's also loving to sew more and more these days (hmmm, I wonder where that comes from!) Between her and Emily, I never know if my sewing machine is free for ME to use!
Last weekend she whipped up this amazing messenger bag, complete with orange elephant buttons.
It's sew her own style. No pink for this girl.
I love how her style is growing stronger every day!
Now, I'd better sneak into the sewing room before the girls take over!
It's Tuesday timeout day, after all!

Yarrow Days...

For many years now, I've had a table at a local community event, Yarrow Days, and for the past 4 or 5 years my girls have joined their creations with mine.
This year, Emily had some sweet and inspiring quotes that she painstakingly stitched and mounted on canvas, and Julianna created some adorable sock doggies to go with her popular monkeys...

Me, I had my usual collection of little quilties, purses, brooches, earrings, and rings...

We had a wonderful day and really want to thank everyone for their kindness and support! We love Yarrow Days (and I love that my girls have such a strong {creative} work ethic!)
