Snowy Delaware

Well, our 3rd snowstorm of the winter.  We're supposed to get around 8 inches. Can't wait for spring!

I finished another purse - this time a cell-phone purse - that my daughter Katie loved and adopted. Guess I'll have to start another!  

I bought the fabric while on a cruise many years ago.  Walked downtown in Barbados and found a small store with fabric.  Never could decide what to do with the fabric until now.  Love it!!!

First UFO of the Year!

Its only January and I've finished my first unfinished object - my mom's quilted purse.  Its a Lazy Girl Design "Towne Purse".  I made one last year for myself. Love all the pockets on the inside - I just extended the handles to 30" each so that you can carry it over your shoulder.  I also quilted the fabric with gold metallic thread - took forever, but I love the results.

A January Day

Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Rom. 12:12
Love that verse.  Helps me remember.  Helps me focus.  God's word is everything we need.
Today was a work day.  I've got lots of grant deadlines and I'm happy to say that I actually finished a draft of number 1 for the year.
God is good.  Now if I can just stay focused!!
