Bags Bags and Needle Cases!

Scurrying to complete orders before heading out to Richmond in two weeks for the next Nana Sadie Rose show and I do want to share when I can. I'm sorry it's been so long again, but you know I'm beginning to wonder if it won't just end up being weekly that I post? I hope not. But we'll just have to see how it goes.

I finished and mailed this lovely Mavis last week and it's been received and the new owner is suitably delighted! (I just love it when they write back and say, "Please send me more business cards, because I just know this is going to generate a lot of interest!" lol!

This gorgeous fabric is from Robert Kaufmann's La Scala line and we had so much fun using my new iPhone to search for the fabric in the middle of the TKGA show last month! (Yes, I am well and duly spoiled by the iPhone - sigh)

I was able to use coordinates to excellent effect in the interior of the bag:

Then this weekend, I've put together an order for a Violette circular needlebook:

That lovely Asian Pictures fabric I've had in stash a long time. I was so excited when the gal ordered this, as I just knew it would turn out well:

As you open the book, you'll see a "inside cover" that has needle sleeves for double-points and crochet hooks...

There are 12 pockets on six "pages" inside for storing your precious circulars.

One large pocket on the back would be the perfect place to slip a notepad or perhaps a listing of your needle stash.

From the side? Well, I like that there's room to breathe! But it's nicely compact.

I wasn't the only one who was delighted to have these finished (and the iPhone, btw, took all these photos!), the Meezer, my Chief Sewing Assistant was pleased to see me marching down the list of orders...

She was also intrigued by the iPhone...
What's that thing Mommie? It's not a camera, there's NO bright light!

Which is why, dear Meezer, we can see how blue your eyes are, for once!

The Kaufman turned out GREAT! (And I don't like blue!)
It was a real geek moment watching you two find that fabric on the iPhone in the middle of the show. It was as much fun as the three customers and five vendeors from two different booths having a Dr. Who fangirl discussion in the middle of the walkway Sunday afternoon!
I'm due for a phone upgrade in May, hmmmm.....

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.
