Scraps from the western quilt I made, added in a few scraps of the cow print fur for a pretty awesome trick or treat bag for the cowboy. The brown faux leather is scraps from David's messenger bag. The other side of the bag. Decided to put the gromets around the top and will pick up some rope or twine for the handle. The Mom of the cowboy's name starts with J also. I didn't want her to steal the bag so I put his name across it.
Out of the sewing room for the day.

Totally forgot I had the dark brown circles fabric. This is what I am thinking of using for a bag for one of my nieces.
Love the light in this room. But I am going to need curtains before next summer arrives. I can see it being too bright at times.

It has been one heck of a week. Kim, our 17 1/2 year old daughter (adopted in 2008) decided to run away from home last week. To make a long story short... Wasn't too hard to find her and we have since agreed to allow Kim to stay with her oldest sister and biological mother about 4 hours away from us. I have to believe that we served some purpose in her life and that this is the path that was chosen for all.
To find the bright side in this. The craft room that I gave up when Kim and her sisters first moved in 3 years ago is being reclaimed as my craft room again. It has fabulous closet space and great lighting. It will probably take me a month to move all my junk into it. Might just be good therapy.

I really need to buy some big buttons. I even had a chance to get another one about 80% completed. So far I am not tired of the pattern. Eventually I want to make one to keep for myself. But I don't even know what fabric I would use.

The flowers are from a in the hoop coaster pattern. I thought they would be cute attached to the quilt also but left them loose for the new owner to decide.
Heating element went out in the dryer Sunday. Pulled it out to make room for a new one and found another pin hole leak in a pipe behind the washer. The leak fixed yesterday and the new dryer being delivered today.
