Cute and Cuter

A month or so ago, I got around to making a belt from a tutorial I'd downloaded from Susan's blog (and it's a pretty terrific blog, by the way, even if she does have advertisements on it).  I had no trouble whatsoever making my belt by following her clear, concise, friendly directions and her helpful pictures.

I foresee many wonderful belts in my future (especially since I'm finally getting a waist for the first time in many years, but that is another topic).  I told both of my DILs that I'd learned this skill and both were interested in receiving a belt.  Amy likes green of all kinds, especially this green, and her belt is waiting for her to pick it up -- this very night!

And do you see that darling bag?  With a zipper?  Made from William Morris fabrics?  Don't get too attached to it.  It's mine.  A PIF gift from my friend Pat.  Who used a charm pack to make it and actually put the unused charms in the bag before giving it to me!  Is she the best, or what?

Awesome, is all I can say. On my "to do" today is clearing the decks in the room where I sew in order to, well, you know, sew! And create!

Those belts are really cute, and I love the one you made in green. Thanks for sharing the link with the tutorial! Now if I only had a waist........

The best is, you will soon have a great waist! Love the green, and the bag is perfect for you. She is very thoughtful, I have one in gorgeous Kaffe's that I love.

Bobbi, maybe a blog one of these days
