I think I'll go ahead and do the first entry for the embroidery contest.
I made this purse out of my favorite skirt that I tore a hole in long before it should have worn out. I was so sad. I made a replacement skirt but it's not even as nice. This pretty purse cheers me up a little bit.
It's been so COLD! We always have a cold snap that lasts for 2 weeks or so. Right now at 7:30am it's 0 degrees outside. Even if I wanted to go anywhere I couldn't. My van won't start when it's this cold. Oh well, I'm getting lots of sewing done. I'll try and do a shop update today. It didn't work yesterday, something was wrong with Etsy's picture server or something.
Today is going to be a great day. I'm going to get stuff done, I'm going to be patient with my girls, we're going to do school and we're going to make this day a good day dang it! We've had a rotten week so far. Actually, last week was pretty awful too. But we are going to start afresh today and turn this week around. Wish me luck.
