Picture Time!

Katie is sewing!

Katie decide that she wanted a grocery cart cover for Dylan. So off we went to JoAnn's to shop for everything. Katie said she wanted to help, so here she is sewing! The last time she sewed was when we made Michael's baby quilt. She did a very nice job. We got it done in 2 afternoons. I forgot to get a picture of the finished cover; maybe Katie will send me a picture of Dylan using it (she did send a pic to my phone but I don't know how to get it here!)


The Sweater.....

The Purse!

This was one of my very favorite sweaters. I bought it way back in 1996 and I always enjoyed wearing it. Imagine my dismay when I pulled it out this year and there were little moth holes in it. Surprisingly, none of my other wool sweaters were affected. So I washed it a couple times in hot, hot water and dried it on high in the dryer. And I made this purse.
When I was done it looked boring so I cut a sleeve on the bias, zig-zagged the edges, and gathered it up. I attached the velvet ribbon and tacked it on the purse. I have gotten several nice comments on it so far. The hook for my keys is attached to the ribbing from the bottom of the sweater. It is on the inside; I just pulled it out to show.

Now I can wear my favorite sweater again!
