I have to tell you about the most incredible find ever. I was looking up fabric samples on a website (I can not reveal my source. It is highly top secret.) and there was a person on there that sells very high end upholstry fabrics to designers and she was getting rid of all her discontinued fabrics. I felt like a kid in a candy store with no limit on what I could have. (and not having to worry about love handles........I know closest thing to heaven on earth!!)

These fabrics are divine to touch and feel. Here are several of the new "ladies" that I have created over this wonderful memorial day weekend. Let me know what you think. They will be going into a new store in Milford on Thursday it is called Beading Friendzy. I may take the blue one and the red one into Just So! and take out the pink Miro bag and the groovy green one. I have not priced these ones yet. Hopefully I will edit this later today.

The day has finally arrived!!! My bags are in their first store. It is in Brighton, Michigan. The store is called Just So! It is located on Main St. just across the railroad tracks on the left. I am sooooooooo excited about this.

Each one of my bags now have a book that tells their own story and each one will now be numbered and signed.

These pictures are the book cover. Then on the inside I have a picture of the bag, a discription, Volume number, and price.

These are the bags as they appear in the store. How exciting.......

Here is my new bag. I purchased this very rare fabric a couple of months ago. It is hot pink with crazy birds and people on it. It is from a designer Miro. It is from 1970. I love it.

Hurray!!!! I finally figured out the zipper!!!!!

The handle on this one is actually two different belts from Liz Claiborne that matched. I was really excited about that. The bag has a front pocket and leather bottom.

$95.00 Sold!!! Thanks Debbie!!

I have been very busy this last month.
First of all I would like to say that I live in the best neighborhood ever!!! It is so organized and there is a core group of us that get together regularly.
One of my dear neighbors was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in his lower intestine/bowel area. Everyone wanted to do something but did not know what to do. So I came up with this. The nice thing about this is the final product is a useful gift.
12 of the neighbors took a 12x12 felted square from sweaters donated by a couple of the neighbors and decorated it and prayed for the family.
The theme for this blanket was the months of the year. So each one of us took a month. I then took all of the squares and put them together with the other coordinating blue and orange rectangles. This was absolutely lovely. Everyone did a fantastic job.
We then held a "recieving blanket party" for Ken and Erin. We all got together to let them know how much we appreciate them and care for them.
If you think about them please pray for them their names are Ken and Erin. He is currently responding to treatment. Their children are 5 and 3.
