Recyle Purses!

Got in a recyle mode! Made this tote bag from a Friskie cat food bag. It was the large bag and was a woven plastic. Worked out great. I put a lining in it with pockets. A friend gave me the bag, and I gave her the tote (Gail is pictured here with her tote)! She loved it!

Got two more bags just not time to make them.
The next purse was made from Wal-Mart
plastic bags. I cut the bags into continuous strips and wove them on my loom. Cut the lining out of an old pillow case that match the wool, placed pockets in the lining. Braided the wool for the handles. Everything was recyled - wool was given to me, pillow case was years old, plastic bags, even the button was off a old jacket. Turned out real cute.

The material was so soft after it was woven - you would have never thought it was plastic.

Got behind in posting!!!

It has been a rough year in some ways. Very tired all the time, can't seem to get my vitamin D levels up and can't find out why.

I am trying to get back in the swing of things though! Been quilting and selling alot of baby quilts. Trying to get back into making aprons again - sold all I had made up. Got some cute fabrics to do some more.

Building a chicken house for the 8 baby chicks; 4 Rhode Island Reds and 4 bantams. Gotta get pictures of the "Chicken Condo".

As you can see, Britney has made pets out of them. This is Betty Boop.
Betty likes to sleep on her arm.

Picking strawberries & cherries - back is killing me!
Will try and catch up on what is
