Twice Paying it Forward.......with Love!

Image
Hi Sweet Friends,


I am hoping you are All doing well dear friends!!








Lately I have been busy making another one of my bags for someone who contacted me on  Facebook recently.  She wanted to give her friend one of my bags to help her in her fight with Cancer. I was so honored to make this for her dear friend.







As I sewed each stitch and placed each embellishment on the bag, I prayed that this sweet woman would beat her cancer and once again enjoy her life to the fullest in good Health and Happiness. As many of you know I send part of the money I recieve to go to KC Willis in her journey to help the Lakota Indians on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota.
This bag as My friend so eloquently put it is like "Passing it Forward Twice"...one to help her friend and then also to help the Lakota people.

My Crazy Quilt purse and Flowers....

Image
Hi Friends,


I wanted to show you the progress I am making with my crazy quilt accessory purse I am making with the class at Artful Gathering this summer.

I attached the clasp with beads, but still have to do
the back of the clasp. I love that I added the beaded
fringe on the bottom of the bag. It matches so well!

This is the first time I ever made anything like this.
I was a bit nervous about making this, but glad I pushed
myself to take on the challenge.
 I will also add a silver chain at the top of the clasp, as ther are two little holes on either side for that purpose.

I took some closeup shots of the floral arrangement my family had sent to me.





 I loved how the dappled light of the sun shown through the blinds upon the flowers and leaves.


Nature is a symphony directed by it's creator.

I wish you All a wonderful day with Love and Kindness
