My Latest Project!

Here is my latest project! I started it last night and finished it up this morning before I took Hunter to the doctor. I made a few of the fabric coiled bowls and then I thought maybe I would try a purse! I had bought the handles (still in the package) a few weeks ago at the junk store for somewhere between .10-.25! After I took this photo I added a flap to hold it together and sewed on some velcro to close it. I threw my stuff in it and carried it to town with me. I got several compliments so that always makes me feel good.

Mom and I ran around town for a while this morning before Hunter's appointment. His appointment went fine. The doctor put him on an antibotic for 2 weeks. He said the stitches would come out after the infection was cleared up. He said to take them out right now and it already infected would only make it worse.

As soon as Andrew got home from school the boys jumped on their new toy and rode it for a while. I'm so glad they like it.

Anyway, I'm off to work on some of my Civil War Diary blocks!!!!!

What a great idea. It appears those bowls have become all the rage lately. I don't tend to have seen them hit a rage here in CANADA yet, but I'm sure it's coming.
