|These are a few of my favourite things!|
Before it begins, I will be on a Skype call to my Aunt Alma in Newfoundland. She is turning 80 years young. There's a party at my cousin's house this evening. I wish I could be there, but visiting via video is a miracle in and of itself.
Once I say good bye, I will offer to Sandra's house to check out the new embroidery machine that she found at the quilt store garage sale. I also plan to make a Tilda tote bag, as featured in Sew Pretty Homestyle, using some fun Mary Engelbreit fabric and vintage handles found at Value Village.
They were once $2 and sold at Metropolitan -- a store that disappeared from here years ago.
I think I paid .99 cents for them in their Value Village reincarnation. Bonus! Now that these bags are popular again, the handles are about $18!
I am excited to be using my two favourite things: ME fabrics and Tilda; for one of my favourite activities: FNSI; with one of my favourite people! I am also doing a birthday present for a certain someone, but I can't write about that until later on this month.
What a great day -- even though it is a little drizzly.
I will post the finished product tomorrow. Have a wonderful FNSI everyone!
