~A Little Sewing and A Little Decorating~

~A Little Sewing~

A few weeks ago…I went to a quilt shop hop with a my friend Linda and I picked up this pattern to make a Suzy Sack.


And I just finished my Suzy Sack today…


It has a strap in the back of the bag that goes thru a loop on your jeans.


This little bag can hold my iPhone, my change purse, and my keys…and a few other little things.


I think this will be a great little bag to carry when I go junking & thrifting…and at my craft shows in the Fall. Since it will be attached to my jeans…I will know exactly where it is at all times.

Now for ~A Little Decorating~

A friend of mine…gave me a handmade crochet wash cloth and some old measuring spoons for my birthday that was back in March.


I couldn’t bring myself to use the wash cloth just yet…so I put it and the old measuring spoons on my kitchen scale.


My friend Karen and I were just recently able to get together…we went to lunch and she gave me my gift then. We hadn’t seen each other in a while…because her husband has cancer and he will be having surgery later this week.


My little bear is holding framed angel wings…as I say a prayer for both of them tonight.

Until next time………         blessings, Cindy

    That Suzy sack is sooo sweet! I’ve never heard of them called that before! Yours is too cute and I especially love the ones showing in the bright, cheerful colors. I like yours because it’s neutral too~~~These would do great at a craft show~~~I also love the scale and your decor on it….very nice. Have a blessed weekend Cindy…(sorry, I haven’t been by too much lately…sooo busy with that cottage) Also, how big are these Suzy sacks?
