Purse Post

Made these two purses today:
The black heart purse is a birthday present for my Emily. She turns 9 on Monday. The other I made for my Lauren (13 years old). They both picked out their own material.

Long bloggy

It's been a while since I've had the motivation to blog. Usually my blog keeps me motivated to quilt and sew and produce, as well as remember good things that happen in my life...well, ALOT of yuckiness has happened that has left me disenchanted with 2012. My mom's health continues to be a problem, my boss (27 years at my hospital) has turned in her resignation due to some political issues....issues not resolved that are left now with us and no great leader to help,,,plus the worry of who they will get to replace her...I inherited a dog, who although cute as a button is still a full grown 2 year old German Shepard who has more energy than my husband and I have time....and worst of all, I haven't had much time to spend doing my sewing stuff... Here's some good stuff tho:
Went to Aerosmith and Cheap Trick concert Monday with my 3 favorite people:
Seeing Aerosmith was on Amanda's "BUCKET LIST". Amanda is 21....funny, huh??? We had a great time and it was a much needed afternoon and evening of fun!
