It is amazing what can be built from what is available so long ago!!!
Wildflower season is over but the cacti are blooming.......
I love the desert in bloom
I also made 3 more bags last weekend.....these are using cotton fabric and are much smaller and folded in my purse.

Apparently so. I sent my drive through the washer a few months back but not through the dryer and so....found it in the laundry room this morning and thought I'd try it out at work and low and behold, it had all the original files on it and they were accessible. Who knew??

Here is Mom (Marne), big sister Elizabeth, Simon & Noah. Funny thing, Hannah wanted NOTHING to do with him. Ah, he is cute but nope, nothing doing. Let's hope that holds until she has finished college and worked a few years.
Simon LOVED rubbing Noah's head so much.
Congratulations Pat & Marne!!!

Here is my finished bag...all folded up.
Unfolded and ready to use.
Filled up with boxes. I have to be truthful, it is almost exactly the same size as a plastic grocery bag with the added bonus that you can fold this one up in your purse. I see making more of these with the fabric I have around the house. I estimate that this bag cost less than $3 to make since the outside fabric was about $1 and the lining also $1. The button and elastic were from my sewing stash so...almost free.
Definitely worth the $6 cost of the pattern.

I also got a screen/security door for the house. I have been enjoying keeping the windows open along with the front door and getting a nice breeze into the house.
And, they were able to match the color of my deep navy door.

There was one snafu....I entered something wrong and it showed that I owed $136,000. Dang, I wish I made that much money to own that much. ;) A load off...and one more thing off my list to do.
Here he is with his big sister's Elizabeth & Reece. Hmm...I think that might be a hand knit hat he is wearing.
Here is my friend Kristina's newest nephew, Chris.
And his big brother & sister.
Congratulations to everyone! I love looking at your babies but I sure don't miss the loss of sleep that comes with the actual arrivals. ;)
