Something else I've been working on
Happy July 4th to everyone! Did you BBQ and watch fireworks? This year my husband and I had a quiet day. He loves to BBQ so he made dinner. Yeah! We didn't go out to watch fireworks this year. We're travelling this weekend and decided a quiet day at home sounded good. It's also 100 and hell degrees outside these days! (I heard that the other day and thought it was pretty funny!) The summers in Vegas can be brutal!
Well, who cares about all that? On to more fun things. I managed to sew this morning. I finished a red Tshirt, made a white Tshirt, lined a purse I made and hemmed a pair of capris. Wow! Don't I sound efficient? I never feel that way. The purse in the picture is crocheted and I actually finished it a while back. I thought a picture of it would be good. It's a pattern from Maggies Crochet and I used crochet nylon. It's harder to work with than yarn, but I like the look of it for purses. I think the purses hold up better too. I've made a few purses and will make more, I'm sure, so be prepared for more purse photos.
