Good evening all!…of course I am up again messing around in my sewing room…I usually opt for quick projects because I like instant gratification when I sew….but this go ’round I wanted a “project”…My first sewing book was Amy Butler’s Style Stitches and her Blossom bag has always been soooooo darling to me…but how cute I thought it was is just how intimidating the pattern was to me….there are plenty of steps and material when it comes to making one of her bags….now while they call for a buncha stuff the finished bag is just snazzy!!…when I first started sewing she was one of the first bag ladies I discovered….I am on the hunt for her Kalencom bag patterns here locally…my little vac and sew shop may stock them by Summer….at least I hope they do…I have been able to nab a couple of her individual patterns there before….it took me around four days to complete this bag and I my stitching skills are advancing…I am starting to understand more about sewing as a whole…basically, sewing is getting cooler by the minute!!…Glad to be on board!!…Rambling?..yep, like always…….

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
