More Sneak Peeks, Good News, Bad News



You just cannot believe how excited I am about this bag. It has been a lot of work because I am working out of a plan in my head, not on paper. I am writing down dimensions as I go to reproduce or correct things as I need to do. The printed fabric is a canvas. I won't give away any more info, but hope to have this one finished VERY soon! It also has a special name, like my other totes, but that is a surprise, too!

Good News: My niece, who is expecting her first baby in August, found out today she's having a
GIRL!!!!
I am so excited! We'd be just as excited for a girl, but this is just fun since I have girls who love cute little baby things. I already have some fabric in mind that I will HAVE to get & make something for little Karis. Karis rhymes with Paris and means grace. It is from the Greek word "charis" used in the Bible in the original texts. Please pray for a continued safe pregnancy and delivery. My niece has had multiple health issues over the past 10 years and was considered a "high risk pregnancy" even though she is not yet 30. Then again, she was told it would be hard to conceive and it happened REALLY fast! LOL!

Bad News: My dear friend Kathy, whom I mentioned before, found out that, in simplified terms, the cancer is, in a sense, more aggressive than originally thought. Trying to get insurance has turned into a nightmare, not just for her and her family, but for all members of the group through which they are working. Pray for God's providence financially, and of course I ask for continued prayers for healing & peace for this dear family.

I will also be posting a new Loribelle Bag (a variation of the Katie bag) on my bag blog: www.loribellebags.blogspot.com

Thanks for sneaking by!

I keep thinking about your friend, that is just too sad!

I am so impressed you can work a bag without a pattern. You "sew" girl!

And that stitched butterfly is so cute! Love it!
