A Ta Dah

 I wanted to post the pattern for the bag I made for my friend Rachel, but my eyes are really bothering me. I have the pattern written out and ready to type up. Today my eyes have really been bad though. They hurt and I had to go back to the doctor.  Before they started to really bother me again, I finished an embroidery/applique project I have been working on. Here it is.
Sorry the photo is so poor, the light in here is bad. Here it is before I framed it.
This was a lot of fun to make. I used to do stuff like this all the time, before crochet took over my hobby life. Lol. All the pieces are appliqued on and then all the detail is embroidered.
 I gave my friend, Rachel, the bag that I made for her. Here she is with Autumn and another lovely young lady in our summer program.
I think she liked it. Rachel, I am proud of you for deciding to back to your university. Have a great year! We will miss you.
 I will try to post my Tuesday's Tallies tomorrow. It depends on how I feel. I promise to post the pattern for the bag in a day or two. Talk to everyone soon. :)


  1. Sending you get well wishes! I have had that before when my children were younger and I's not fun! Looks like your friend loved the bag!

  2. Love the embroidery work. Im not surprised the young lady loved her bag. sorry to hear your eyes are still troubling you, hope you find some relief today.
