The winter blues....

Really, I am fine with the seasons changing, I do not have the winter blues, yet!
Actually, living in Las Vegas, you do get all 4 seasons.
In California, you really don't get the seasons, you get overcast and rain, overcast and rain, smog, oh, and then you might get sunny for a day....Trust me, I lived there for 36 years!!

So, on to why I named this post winter blues: TA-DA!

I made a purse! Well, I had to get some help from the purse guru, Tanya, but I really tried to do it all by myself. It is an Amy Butler Pattern called Birdie Sling, and I would say a medium level pattern, you have to quilt the bag, add pleats, box the corners so I am not thinking easy. I am speaking from a not so great of a sewing person (beginner). For an experienced person, super easy, probably!

I am so excited to be sewing again, it is so much fun! I will still make jewelry for my Etsy shop, because I love having my own little store! I don't think I will be selling purses though, you really need to be a perfectionist to sell sewed stuff!
I have so much more to share this week so stay tuned!!

YOU ARE A SEWER FOR SURE! YOUR MOTHER CAN'T EVEN SEW ON A BUTTON.
GEE, SHE COULD USE A BLACK PURSE FOR HER BIRTHDAY (HINT, HINT) HAHA.
YOUR GRANDMOTHER MADE MOST OF MY CLOTHES WHEN I WAS A KID. SHE MADE HERSELF SUITS AND COATS, TOO. SHE MADE SLIPCOVERS FOR FURNITURE AND THROW PILLOWS AND CURTAINS AND DRAPES, SO I GUESS YOU INHEIRITED THE SEWING GENE FROM HER.SEW ON!!
