I did it!!!!!

Okay, I'm a few weeks late for 4th of July, but I made my FIRST drawstring bag.  I used a bandana I got really "cheap", and it was my practice one; not too bad for the first one.  Thanks, GerryArt, for the helpful tutoring!!

Also, thanks to Anna Marie and her granddaughter, I made this little bag out of a washcloth and duct tape!!!  I found duct tape sheets and they worked well for this.  With the help of hubby, we got the grommets in.  What fun it was to put together!!!

My return to creativity

Okay, time to show some creativity. Last year, I bought this size 18 month jean skirt at my neighbor's garage sale. Then, last week, went to Hobby Lobby and got the denim bag...came home, sewed the skirt on to the bag, and viola!!! A small purse suitable for church. How fun!!!!

It's a new day

Good morning. The fireworks were amazing! Seeing them from 10 stories up really made an impression. After all these years, fireworks showed me how soldiers must have seen the attacks coming. It was really a new perspective!
Dad did much better last night and we hope to move to a rehab center tomorrow. Pray they have a room available.
P.S. I hope Gerryart gets this in her google reader now!

Happy 4th!

Alas, I am back in Wichita.  Dad got loopy from medicine and fell. No broken bones, but a very swollen knee.  Out of intensive care and no longer loopy.  We're on the tenth floor with a gorgeous southern view, and should be able to see fireworks over the river tonight.  Have a safe holiday!
