What's up?

Hi Everyone!

How's your weekend going so far? I had many plans and ideas swimming around, but haven't accomplished much yet. I was "under the weather" yesterday and did't do very much. I woke up this morning feeling much better, so I hope to get a few things done

Here's a picture of the last t-shirt I made. It's Kwik Sew # 3003. I like how it fits. I made a size medium and tapered out to a large for the hips. It's made from a cotton/poly knit I found at JoAnn's. I made several tops before using KS # 3338 and KS # 2900. The fit of this one seems to be in the middle of them. The neckline of this one is fine and I think I can use the other 2 patterns to change it up some.

Ready for a picture of another purse? I can't seem to stop making them. This one is just a simple shoulder strapped bag. I used crochet nylon and half double crochet stitches. I like the size of it for what I carry around all the time. Here's a tip: crochet shoulder straps stretch! I purposely made this shorter than I wanted it and it has almost stretched to a length longer than I like. It probably has a great deal to do with what I shove in it, but I thought this might be a handy tip for someone.

The weather is beautiful here in Vegas. DH and I took a walk this morning. Last weekend DH rented a bike for me and we went bike riding. It was great. I just may have to buy one soon.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I love your new t-shirt! V-necks rock!

And that purse is very nice too!

I keep forgetting you live in Vegas. I think that's my "happy place"!

I must add that pattern to my sewing list... I really like it and a fan of v-neck t-shirts.

Another fabulous purse.. keep them coming.

Nice tee -- have you seen the new Vogue Basic Tee (8536)? I'm intrigued by the side gathers (in lieu of a dart) so I'll be taking it for a test drive soon -- gotta find the perfect tee!
