The cold temperatures and  messy roads have kept me home sewing this February.  This is just part of an icicle that was hanging from our house.

Maddie has been saving empty Koolaid jammer containers for a few months. She brings her own home from school and collects them from the other kids as well.   I finally sat down with some instructions that I found online and we made two lunch bags.  I used insturctions from http://henriettashandbags.com/koolaid- and  http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf984011.tip.html

Maddie designed this one to be a little bigger and we added a handle.

I need to collect more to make a beach/shopping bag for myself.  It shouldn’t take too long.  Suck’ em back kids.

Maddie was busy making beaded crafts for a friend and baby Inez. 

The one on the left is an I and the other is an H.

Many more projects on the way.  I’m waiting for the Fabricland sale that starts this week to get the fabric for Maddie’s junior bride’s maid dress.  I’m hand quilting her Amy Bulter lotus quilt when I sit to watch T.V. .  Maybe I should do something for myself after that.  ummmm.
