Sunday Again!

I didn't leave the house today, so no escapades to relate, sorry!

But I worked all day...wanna see?
Isn't this just gorgeous? I have to tell you this is another of those fabrics that was requested in an order, I hadn't seen it. When I did, I almost swooned (yes, that's the perfect word to describe the feeling)...

Purple and gold are the colors of royalty. They're also my high school's colors. I reminisced with Sandra yesterday that I believe my love of purple began in kindergarten when my teacher, Mrs. Merritt (aka "The Purple Lady,") was attired in the color every single day. It was her favorite shade, and I loved her. I think that might have been the start.

Then in elementary school (probably fourth grade or so) my mom finally allowed me to paint my room lavender. (sigh)

It was gorgeous.

Then high school. In my advanced choir days (my sophomore year) we wore short royal purple dresses with puffed sleeves (Mom's had to make them). In A Capella choir, my junior and senior years, we wore long gold gowns, also with puffed sleeves. The two groups often sang together. You can imagine what we looked like? The long gowns in the front of the short ones? (And those of us not able to wear old gold? We looked terribly sick in that funky color - "old gold," indeed, it was MUSTARD!)

Anyway, I digress. I do believe this color combo is stunning and this fabric is amazing. That's a Mavis up there, and below? A matching Glady case:


Another Mavis order:
this is a batik (there is no way a batik will turn out badly, I do believe). The colors are copper, gray, black, and a lovely slate blue/silver.

I had a blast putting the coordinating fabrics into these...and I hope the new owners love them as much as I do.

Just to update you, my "cold" or "allergy attack" - whatever it was - seems to be gone. One day? Never heard of such a thing. It must have been an allergy, but what could have hit me? I'm fine today. I took another of the Mucinex stuff this morning, just in case, but have been fine all day.

Whew!

Now the good news? For all that this is Sunday and the end of a short weekend, this is an amazingly short week for me. Our office will close at noon on Wednesday and I don't have to return until Monday again.

Here's hoping you're lucky enough to have a long weekend heading in your direction, too!
(((Hugs)))

That purple/gold bag is a stunner! I'm happy to hear you are feeling better - must have been an allergy. Enjoy your shortened work week and we'll be in touch.

Lovely work. That purple and gold would be a hit here in LSU territory.

Remember, dear friend, that when you take Mucinex you must get adequate fluids to help mobilize all that gunk. Glad you'll be feeling yourself for the holiday.

The bags are gorgeous! I love the purple/gold combination -- definitely royal in nature :) And as I can work from home all week, I'm lounging around right now, trying to motivate myself to do some grading, when the spinning wheel is calling...

Gorgeous, of course! Glad you're feeling better - sometimes, my migraines trigger my sinuses and it's like I have a momentary cold attack.

Pretty bags! I do love purple too, but I don't know where I developed a love for it. Glad you are feeling better!
