Finishes for the Week of July 15, 2013

Good morning!! I pray all is well with each of you. If not, know you are in my prayers. I am doing better than the last post. I have been through it, and still have to have three more teeth pulled and get a partial put in, but I pray that eventually I can eat better than I have in a long time. That may not be good, though. LOL I definitely don't need to gain any more weight. I need to lose!!!

Okay on to what I've accomplished this week. I have a few friends who have purchased fabric for me to make them a purse. So, I managed to get two finished this week. I am proud of the way they look. They are not perfect, but I am learning. I plan to make some different styles, soon, and I want to design my own pattern. I guess I will combine several different patterns to get what I like myself. Then, I will make those for awhile. LOL 

Here are the two handbags I finished this week. I think they turned out pretty good. :D

I went to the local America's Thrift Store to look for my grandson some shorts. He has been home schooled for the past two years, but they are trying out the school at the church they attend for 2nd grade. They wear uniforms, but he needed shorts to wear with the uniform shirt. So, DD asked if I would look here to see what I could find. I found him four pair that hopefully, if they fit, he can wear them to school. I also happened up on some fabulous fabric finds. I've been wanting to try making some handbags and totes out of upholstery fabric. Have mercy! I found the jackpot!!! Here is what I found. some of it is absolutely gorgeous. Well, most of it is, or I wouldn't have purchased it. LOL

This fabric is cotton for donation quilts
Well, what do you think of my find? Awesome, huh? Well, that is it for today. Have a blessed day!
