It’s Been A Few Days…


After returning from a great Port A vacation with two of my grandchildren,
I gave myself a few days to rest.
I thought it would be a good idea to reorganize the room before I started
working on the patchwork tote bags for the two baby girls.
Then, on one of the over 100 degree days, my new AC gave out.
My workroom became a sweat shop, so I had to wait until the AC was fixed.
I finally got to finish the two bags today.

I had money remaining on one of my Jo-Ann gift cards, so I went on a Button Bonanza shopping trip. The buttons were on sale, and I used coupons, so it wasn’t so bad.
I made yo-yo’s from the remaining charms in each pack.

The lining is pink and white polka-dot, like the handles, and has two pockets.

Twin Girls!

A friend of my brother just had twin girls.
I ordered some fabric charm packs to make each sweet girl a tote.
New parents can always use totes.
Later, the girls can use them for their books or toys.
Being a mother of twins, I understand that the individuality of each baby is important.
My brother said he can already see who the bossy one will be.
So I ordered a Windham Basic Brights Charm pack that has colorful polka dots, stars, flowers and other bold and cute designs. It looked sort of bossy and bold.
I ordered a charm pack by Moda, entitled, Grow!
It looked peaceful and friendly.

After looking at the Windham website, I think I might order the Dot. Dot. Dash! charm pack to use instead of the Grow. I like the variations of polka dots.
