Sunday Afternoon...

Much of this weekend has flown by doing things other than what I know I need to be doing, and as a result I'm feeling a bit flustrated. Yesterday was mostly spent shopping for Farmer's Market veggies (and I'll have a post over on Nana Sadie's Place in a bit about that) and shopping for uniforms for the Nana Sadie Rose "crew." Dinner with sis-in-law last night at Panera, then more shopping, finally heading home and answering the call of my accounting "tutoree" (sometimes I wonder how I get myself into these things, but this is a friend, and we usually help our friends out, right?)

I'm about to begin another session of accounting help shortly, but I wanted to get some things up here for you to enjoy...I certainly had fun making these for the National Capital Cat Show:

When I saw this cute print, I had to pick it up, even tho' I know it won't appeal to everyone, but brown, avocado, and orange, being 1970's colors, still speak to me somehow, even tho' I no longer have them in my house! (oh, well, except for all that Tupperware...). This Rosy seemed like the perfect bag to make up in this print.

Then I simply had no choice but to make a sample Sadie bag. This is the largest bag I make, and I don't stock them, they're only available by custom order. I had sold the last sample last year at NCCS, mailing it out to the buyer after the show was over, and hadn't made another one. Then I saw this wonderful print by one of my favorite artists, Dan Morris, and had to snap it up! It was perfect for this bag, as it's a bold stripe.

And from my button stash, I pulled this darling handcrafted item and stacked it with the aqua button beneath it. Couldn't have planned it better, I don't think!

This sample won't be sold. It's Nana Sadie's *wink*

Those are both fabulous - I absolutely understand why you'd hang on to that second one for yourself :) I hope the "classes" are going well this weekend, and that you're staying cool and dry!

It's cute! They both are.

Watching HGTV somewhat endlessly last Saturday - those 70's colors are coming back, just not in shag carpet and appliances, thankfully....

Beautiful bags! 70s colors are in style, although, personally I like the colors of the Sadie bag better.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
