Snowflake Bag FINISHED!!!

I finally finished the bag last night and I even took it out on its first fabric shopping excursion this afternoon!!! Fabricville had a big sale and well I just HAD to take my little bag along! Not to mention it was a cold cold COLD day here and it was sprinkling snowflakes, so it was only appropriate to use the bag! I love how it turned out!

I didn't buy much at the sale. I did buy some terry cloth fabric and a meter of a really cute pink baby fabric as I want to make a nice hooded bath towel for a friend of mine who recently had a baby girl. Once I see how big this towel is I might make some more for William. I also plan to do some machine embroidery on the hood area. Once I finish it I will post a photo of the result.

I decided to pull out a little UFO this evening to work on for an hour on a little bom I started a couple years ago and then gave up working on it. It is a Calendar BOM with applique and embroidery work. As you can see I have January and February completed.

March month was started but never finished. I picked it up again and got back to appliqueing two of the 3 tulips. I still need to look for a border fabric which I will do in the next day or so.

By 9:30pm it was time to head to Mum's place (she lives in my downstairs apartment. The door that connects her place to mine enters into the main sewing room... convenient hey!!) to watch our new favourite tv series that started last week on CBC. It is called "Pillars of the Earth" For the last couple of years we were caught up every week watching The Tutors But now that that series is completed we are looking forward to this new one. Two shows into it and already I'm looking forward to next Tuesday night!

Tomorrow night we also start up our weekly Wednesday night sewing group here at the house. For the last 6-7 years there have been a group of us that meet for a few hours to sew and quilt. At the moment we have 5 gals that get together. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again tomorrow night to see what projects they will be starting on!

It is a cold night out there tonight. I just took the dog out for her bedtime pee and we got back in the house as fast as possible. She is now curled up on the couch behind me here in Trevor's "Man Cave" and I have my nice warm wooly jammies on. I'm on monitor duty tonight as Trevor is working so I'm heading off to bed. Hopefully William will have another full night of sleep without waking up til the morning. He is cutting tooth #3 right now. When we got him ready for bed tonight after his bath I noticed the top left front tooth just peeking out!!! yipppeeee!!!! another little chomper!!! I'm sure the other top tooth will be along very soon. If not he is going to have a silly little lopsided smile!!! LOL
