I’m pretty excited about this one. The first pants purse I made never got lined and I just tied the straps to the belt loops. This one is completely finished off. Still may have a couple stray threads here and there but I think it looks pretty darn good…thanks to Mrs. Wilwerding…my 8th grade Home Economics teacher who taught me how to sew.
I’ve been asked by a dear friend Theresa to join a new round robin. I picked the theme for my book…ROAD TRIP. The cover still seems as if it needs something. I’ll keep thinking…
As a kid nearly every summer we took a long road trip, sometimes driving across the country. I’ve seen every state west of the Mississippi River plus a couple east of it and 4 Canadian Provence’s. I miss the traveling, seeing out of the way places, eating at diners, setting up a makeshift camp.
So this is the beginning of my ode to the road trip…
I am walking on cloud nine today!
I just got an email that a piece I submitted to Somerset Memories will be published in the Dec/Jan issue!!!!! I am thrilled as you can well imagine. I can hardly wait for the magazine to come out.
Late spring of 2008 a charm bracelet of mine will be published in a book titled 1000 Jewelry Details.
I was surprised to find as many FDR quotes as I did that I actually liked. I picked this one for it’s fun yet very true statement and also that it was short enough to fit on the cover nicely.
