BoHo Bag and Pink Saturday

Happy Early 4th of July and Happy Pink Saturday. Don't forget to visit everyone over at  How Sweet The Sound with Beverly and visit all the other bloggers. Lots of fun blogs to visit.  I'm been real busy over at the Artful Gathering trying my hand at Crazy Quilting and created my own Boho Bag an over sized tote to hold everything from "soup to nuts" and then some. I just love it and it has a pocket in front for keys, cell phone and lipstick, ect and all those other things that we are looking for in the abyss of our purses. Have a wonderful weekend and celebrate the 4th honoring our troops, country and all the freedom it stands for, keep safe and have fun!

Hamming it Up and Going Crazy


It has been a busy week here and as usual, never a dull moment, between the younger group of grandchildren and the Artful Gathering, that is what I have been up to. Today I hope to relax a little and slip in a stitch or two:) My youngest Granddaughter graduated from Kindergarten and my oldest Grandson was busy hamming it up in his first grade end of the year classroom production. Here is a recap of our latest events along with a bit of a start of my Artful Gathering class, "Crazy Quilting". What a great class, I am and have always been a sewer and fabric lover first  and my paper addiction comes in a close second. Rather than over load I only signed on for one class over at AG this first session, the second session I haven't decided yet. We will see:)

Artful Gathering and Blogging Fun

Daniella's gift of Happy Mail
Pat Winter's kit
Sharing with you today some blogging fun and creativity!  Yesterday I received a sweet gift and thank you from my friend Daniella Hayes  from Layers of Creativity.  Daniella is one of the winners of my 300 Follower Giveaway and a good friend. Now Daniella is a gal of many talents and created me this wonderful little ATC in the Wizard of Oz theme. Thank you Daniella for such sweet thoughts. Now for another subject ......... have you thought about checking out the  Artful Gathering  and all its fun classes. There is plenty of time as there are 2 sessions this year. A great online retreat. I signed up for  Pat Winter's Crazy Quilting class so I could learn a new method of creating. I love trying new things to create  I guess you could call me the perennial student and I did order one of her wonderful kits so I would not have to be on a search for new fabrics. I'm sure that kept me out of a heap of trouble. Gee whiz, you would think I never have anything to do with my time, lol  Fun, fun, fun.......
