New style bag and a special blessing

I finally finished a new style bag. The bag has a zipper closure and pockets both inside and out.  (It reminds me of a flat bottom taco....teehee.)  This bag is fairly big, but I think a small version would be cute too - may have to work on that some day....but not soon, my "to do" list is huge.

See all that wood in the background, we have been blessed with 4 pick-up truck loads of cut, split and stacked firewood. Thanks to a special couple from our church, we will be toasty this winter!

Enjoying a beautiful day today since Irene passed by. We had 1.2 inches of rain and lots of wind but no damage.....thinking of all those who were not as fortunate.

Hugs, Carolyn

Quick Laptop Sleeve

Andrea's headed to college this week.  Her computer has a new padded home.   It's a simple envelope style project, prequilted fabric on the inside for padding and cotton fabric on the outside.  Andrea selected the mod batik fabric.  We both love the finished project!

Thanks for stopping by........and come visit our empty nest :)

Texas bound.....

I shipped this diaper bag to a special mommy-to-be in Texas.   As a teenager, she spent many summers providing child care for our daughters.  She will always hold a special spot in our hearts.  We pray she and her husband and have a safe delivery and healthy baby girl. 

The bag features, pockets inside and outside and a magnetic snap closure.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog!
