2nd Handbag Update

Today I've been busy cleaning out this junk storage room.  Thankfully I had the help of a master organizer/cleaner neighbor.  She literally went to town in there.  She shoed me away so that she could get busy and I worked in the kitchen.  Let me tell you this also - the antibiotic is really working!  I've had more energy and felt better today than I've felt in the past two weeks!  Also, my brother got home safely around 2 a.m. this morning.  Yay!

Because of the schedule, I couldn't get back to the handbag until tonight.  I've got a bit of the idea for the front but I didn't want to waste too much time contemplating over it, so I did what I knew I could do - starting the lining process.  I picked out this ethnic print I bought this summer - something Egyptian.  (When I take the official pictures I'll be sure to show the lining better.)  The lining is pinned on three sides, leaving the fourth side open so I can stitch the front part of the bag.  So far, I'm pleased at how the bag is coming together, and I hope to finish it tomorrow. 



  1. Beautiful! Hopefully you will have it finished for Christmas Day. :-)

    Glad to know you're feeling better and your brother arrived safely. Take care!

  2. The bag is looking great! And the fabric inside is gorgeous.

    Glad to hear the medicine is working and you are feeling better. Good to hear also that your brother made it in safely.
