Peaceful...

It's my favorite kind of day. The kids are all at work and Riff is out in the backyard finishing up a stone walk project he had going on. It's raining, I have cookies in the oven and best of all, I'm alone in the house for a few minutes. That absolutely never happens and I totally and completely crave it. Some "me" time is mandatory, though as I write this I hear footsteps through the back door and into the kitchen. I spoke to soon...(big sigh)....


I knit up and felted these cute little purses this past week. They are the perfect size for those times when you want to just take your keys, lipstick and debt card with you. I found the cutest handmade clay button at the quilt shop in Cannon Beach to go on the multi-colored one. That one is headed for my etsy shop.


I'm participating in a fun pink and green swap hosted by Lucy and Rebecca. Not only did you need to send all things pink and green but they had to coordinate with the letters in the word Spring. For example: S-socks. You had to make tags for each item for it's corresponding letter and you also had to have one thrifted item, one craft item and one handmade item. Challenging and alot of fun. This is the only glimpse I can give you as my package has not yet arrived in the waiting hands of it's intended receipiant. (Oh, my soul!! I just noticed that I had the letters out of order. What exactly is SRPING?!)

May you all be blessed with some peaceful time alone...

Funny, I didn't notice the words out of order until I read your post. It's funny how our eyes make sense out of things! I'm so glad you enjoyed the challenge of the swap!!! Can't wait to see what you put together!

As always, your purses and creations are wonderful. Love the bright colors!
