yesterday, we had our monthly big d city stitchers ASG meeting (american sewing guild). we meet at the lakewood library every 3rd saturday of the month. it's my favorite day of the month! we made these cute "market bags". i think they turned out REALLY cute and they did not take long to make at all.

i asked a random person to snap a picture of us and this is the best i got. i'm thankful to get a picture though...

this is my 100th post. it's incredible that i've not only stuck with something this long but that i've had that many crafty things to show. love that!

another bow...

my daughter has weird ideas about posing.

i do still do other things besides make bows. for instance, right now i am working on a skirt for indyanna. i should be finished with it tomorrow. i, also, have another project ready to post but i can't until the recipient receives it. don't want to spoil the surprise! i promise the next post will be sewing related!

sew, indyanna and i have discovered the greatness that is the BOWDABRA! seriously, if you have a girl, don't walk, RUN to your nearest walmart and buy one. we made bow after bow after bow tonight. i've discovered that my daughter likes BIG bows.

proof of big bow love

she even made a bow for daddy.

you can also use the bowdabra to make bows for presents. SWEETNESS.
