It’s All About Me Today Blog Hop

  buttonbiased4 Yes, Today is my day for this wonderful blog hop and before you get a look and my creation, I would like to give my thanks to Mdm Samm for always creating such fun blog hops,  Marlene for hosting and cheering us on this event, and Amy Bradley for providing our pattern to work off of and creating our own.
Now, I have been having some sewing machine problems.  My faithful sewing machine broke down on me, so I have been using one of my girl friend’s , which has no drop down feed dogs and limited stitching, and OMG, I had to thread the need myself.  Lord what did we do without these wonderful amities before the age of computerization.  Anyway I struggled through, did need all the fancy stuff anyway, but I did miss it.
I'm a little slow
So Here I am,  It says “I’m a little Slow”.    I had to bling her out, and to tell you the truth, my boobs are that big and a bit on the saggy side of touching my knees when the bra is off.  She is now my new shoulder bag.  Roomy enough to carry those things, like my kindle, keys and wallet with out having to carry a big bag around with me when I run out on short trips.
I took her to the office retreat with me after stopping by the doctors office to check out my knee.  Everyone loved her.

After I got home, Tom took be to Hancock Fabrics, which is going out of business in Forestville, MD so I could pick out a new sewing machine for my birthday, YAH!!  Told you I was going to get a machine for my birthday,  It has all the bells and whistles that I need at this time.

I am ready to set up and sew.  Need to get my other hop projects done.  Oh, here are pictures of the back and inside of the bag.  The bag has a pocket in the back that is as flat as my backside and pockets in the inside to hold my keys and cell phone another things I carry.

So that is all folks, please make sure you check out the other hoppers today.

  11. Oh, I love the bag. It's great when we can make them the way we want them and not have to "settle" for the designers that never put enough compartments/pockets in them. Congratulations on the new machine. I would like to get an updated one sometime as mine is over 30 years old, but still working fine. What kind did you get? Thanks for sharing, from California.

    Oh Felicia, I love your bag. YOu can carry this proudly. Oh my, I love it. You are amazing and so deserving of this snazzy new machine. My former neighbor has this machine and he loves it. Yes, I typed HE. (they were renting and now they bought a place across town) My neighbor is the crafty creative one. His wife is a scientist and a mathematician lol.
    Happy Birthday sweet friend. I know this machine is going to set you on fire and then you will be the zippy quilter hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  54. She is so cool on a bag...I love her! I wish I'd made a bag with mine, because it is really eye-catching to have YOU on a bag. A new sewing machine is definitely a great birthday gift. Your post is hilarious from the sagging boobs to the (gasp) having to thread your own needle. Too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Love the bag, she is super cool. Your birthday present is amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The bag is adorable. I know it has to be a hit everywhere you go. I would not have thought to make a bag. That is what makes these hops so great ~ seeing all the great ideas and creativity of others. Congrats on your new sewing machine. You are going to have a blast using it.

    Maybe we need to have a pillow case challenge so that we ladies who have saggers will have new bras at the end. And I have had a reduction and a 1/2. A 1/2 because I had breast cancer and was very lopsided after the radiation. I know - too much info. At least I still have TWO!

    Even with the slow that you claim, you finish much more than I do. I want you to know that you are awesome, you have awesome projects and are an inspiration to many. Thank you for participating.
