Absent Blogger

July 23rd, the date of my last post. Wow, I knew it had been awhile, time has flown. We have been very busy, so here is a recap and it does include sewing.
I have been working on my own purse pattern. I have the basic shape and construction complete but just working on "changing it up" a bit. I plan on teaching this in the beginning purse class.
Here is one purse with grommets and a tie.
Another one with grommets and the straps tie through the grommets. My friend has already sold this one in her quilt store.
Next, a road trip to see a lake that is at near-record flood stage. Here is one side of the dam, calm and serene, right?
Well, the other side. It was quite a sight to see.
Also, a weekend trip to my brother's house, the twins went to a pro-baseball game with their oldest sister, my niece is here visiting. DD#2 had her deviated septum fixed (broken nose from sophomore year basketball game). Then of course work, gardening, sewing and swimming. Oh, yes, back-to-school shopping today.
I made 2 more purses over the weekend and will get pictures up soon.
Thanks again for all the comments and emails, I appreciate your thoughtfulness and concern. I am feeling better each and every day.
