Lather, Rinse, Repeat…..

Here’s my latest Beacon House update:


I had to unstitch about 3” of the top line of the water, back to where I stopped infilling, because I had mistakenly repeated the previous section of chart. This JCS version of the chart is horrible. The chart runs across 3-4 pages and breaks at very inconvenient places- it’s been difficult trying to keep my place. I finally taped all the sections together into one big chart.

Em got me a new purse for my birthday. It has smaller outside pockets than my previous bag, and a single large inner compartment. So I made some zippered organizers so I can find my all-important lottery cards:

Here are the lining colors:

zip clutch green

zip clutch black

zip clutch blue

And this is for my Mom- the thread catcher:

Then Em got me this- a leftover from the Olympics:


Google “Steven Colbert” and “Dressage”. He’s made several hysterically funny videos in an attempt to skewer the Romneys, but the videos are too funny. Oh- here: From The Colbert Report and this. And dressage queens united to produce this at Gladstone (site of the Olympic Trials)

Sorry to hear about the frogging. The bags you made are lovely, even if they will hold lottery tickets/ lol
