It's been a dreary, gloomy Thursday... rain early this a.m., then fog, then clouds. We're suppose to get heavy rain moving in after 10:00 tonight. Just what we don't need more of. This kind of weather is murder on my old bones so I feel about like it looks outside.

I finished another purse earlier in the week. This one is for my daughter Joy. She loved mine and headed for the material and trim and picked out what she wanted hers made of. It's denim with a bright cotton stripe lining and her monogram.

Hubby took my sewing/embroidery machine in for service and maintenance on Tuesday. I am totally lost without it. He said it might be ready on Saturday but not to count on it 'cause they are backed up right now. Anyway when I get it back, I will make Robin's purse. She also gets a denim one and she said she wanted purple and green trim. Hmmm......we'll see what I come up with.

I have had two people ask me what I would charge to make a purse for them. If they are willing to pay my price, I just might be in the purse making business.

I am still working on my ATC's for Amy's challenge. I am really struggling with them. I have about decided that ATC's are not my thing and may never make another one after I finish this challenge.

Have you checked out the really neat giveaway that Lesli has. If not, be sure and visit her blog and check it out. Boy, Robin and I both really would like to be the lucky recipient!

Luck, love and laughter

I hate that you are having trouble with the ATCs. Just do your thing and don't put a lot of thought into it, I know anything you do will be wonderful!

The main thing with ATCs is that you have to view that size as the canvas and not as a scaled down version of a larger canvas (i.e. not a scrapbook page). But even then, sometimes certain sizes just don't work for certain people. I REALLY don't like 8 1/2 x 11 but my 1st son's entire baby album is that size. I learned while doing the album that that size doesn't work for me and I never did another one:). Good luck.

Oh, and I LOVE the purses:). Let us know how much you would charge for them, I might be interested too:).
