my cousin cassie sent me this awesome purse today. i love it so much. she's the best.







she also sent me a really cool card. you can see it on her blog. it's the first one--the bird card! it's adorable.

i haven't really been sewing lately. but i have been cutting out patterns. i've cut out about 6 or so. and now i'm officially ready to start sewing! yay me. very soon i will have lots of things to share.

my sister taught me how to make loopy bows this weekend. not a great picture, but here's one of them.



and here is what i'm working on for my mother in law. i am making it for her birthday. (she and i share the same birthday) we're not getting together until the 15th so it will be done by then! it's going to be a pillow and the flowery material in the picture is the back and edges of the pillow. anyways, i actually embroidered this using my machine! i love my machine!!!!

LOVE that purse!!! And of course, the bow! With MY ribbon as well! :P BTW... I ordered a bunch of ribbon to make some more. Bad me..

Okay, that pillowcase is going to be gorgeous! LOVE the colors. Very rich and just beautiful together. And the embroidering just ties it all together perfectly.

OK HOlly, you cut things out for me, I'll sew them together. That's the part I hate the most.
Didn't realize you were a March birthday folk too. No wonder I like you! Happy Birthday!
