Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the rain at all. Especially this time of year when the flowers need it. I just wish it would rain at night & be sunny during the day. After weeks of nice weather & playing outside every day, the kids are now forced to be cooped up inside. Maybe I'll let them splash in the puddles later today, like before bathtime. Maybe. If they're lucky. Or if I go crazy enough. Yep, I'm pretty sure it will happen.

I hope you really like it and are able to use it, Sheri!
Well, we're finally expecting some rain this week, so looks like we'll be inside a lot more. I have a lot of cleaning to do & a lot more sewing. I guess I'll be busy getting back to the normal routine. Boy, I can't wait for summer!

I went there in November that year to visit Pam & her now husband, Rob. I was there for 4 days & had a great time. We tried to go sledding in the foothills. We hung out in Denver for a day. My favorite day was when Pam & I went shopping in Boulder. What a fabulous little city! I know I'm missing several pictures of this trip (all in color). Maybe I never developed them, I don't know. But at least I have these pics of that great trip. The next time I visit Pam & Rob (and now Mom Brann too!), I'll be sure to go when it's warm!

It started with one simple fold-over purse pattern (I would give credit where credit is due, but unfortunately I have no idea where the pattern is now), but now I can look at a picture in a catalog or online & come up with my own variation. I'm actually quite proud of myself for this.
So this purse started as a fat quarter & some scraps this morning, and now it's a really cute handbag with gussets. The flap for closing it buttons on the front where the pocket is. I made it so I can button the pocket and the purse together. I'm just not crazy about the handles, but I'll figure those out better on the next one.
Oh, and just a little clarification for those who are seeing my stars for the first time. I use 18" or 28" tin barn stars, and I Mod-Podge various scrapbook papers on them. Then I embellish them with ribbons & little knick-knacks on the center. Emma & Jake each have a small one in their rooms, and I have my first large one in our entry way, as well as a small one on the wall over the computer. The snowman star that I made for my mom is already hanging over her dining room table! I think it's actually my favorite star so far.
