After literally months of having no desire to create I decided to make a special birthday gift for a special friend. She loves handbags - who doesn't? - and her favorite color is red so I stitched together this little bag last night.
It is hard to see the detail, but there are five rows of ruffles on the front, just adding a little texture more than anything to an otherwise simple little bag.
Her birthday is coming up in July so I won't have to wait long to find out if she likes it!
Finishing the project in an evening made me realise just how much I miss sewing. The feeling of accomplishment when you start and finish making something that is practical - until I decided to make another bag which is totally impractical.
This itty bitty little tote is not particularly useful as a bag for me or most women I would say. I would be lucky to fit my purse and keys into it, never mind my phone, lipgloss and all of the obligatory "stuff" that we seem to carry around. Instead I will put it away for the next time my daughter gets a party invite.
Thanks for looking xx

Believe, grow, love, live
I used my cute new tripod to take this timed selfie - yeah, a bit more practice required, I know. But I wanted a picture with the tools that have helped me in my journey of faith renewal - my Bible, my text At Home with Gods People, my Catechism and a prayer book.
My journaling reads:
I turned to you because I want to believe, grow, love. With my faith renewed I am ready to have faith in myself and live my best life.
Marjolaine designed this months fantastic sketch and her twist? Fussy cutting. This is a technique that I never, ever use, and I found out why when I cut 2 butterfly antennae off during my attempt. It sure was a challenge for me!
Why don't you try using Marjolaines sketch? You have until January 30th to upload your entry to Scrapbooking Everyday Miracles blog.
Thanks for looking, comments always appreciated xx
