Another piece of fabric I printed.  Small so I will add some depth and make a coin purse.  Needs a little gold or some sparkle.  Love the french theme.  Ready to do some serious sewing today, if I don't get caught up going through my stash to find the right piece of fabric that inspires me.  Have a fun weekend.

Printed this fabric and made into a small zipper purse for a child.  A little of this and a little of that. Fun project and really simple and fast.  Well it is already the middle of the week and nearing the end of the month.  I just don't know where the time goes.

This is a skateboard deck I covered in fabric for a Christmas gift.  Dead of the Dead- meets Paris.  I used my stash of fabrics.  I have another guitar started, Hawaiian fabrics, even some bark cloth from Hawaii.  My week end is going to to full with Birthday party for the 50 year old(she has been celebrating all week, say she only turns 50 once).  Off to the Mushroom festival on Sunday.  Enjoy your week end.

Years ago when my mom was alive and doing ceramics she convinced me to do a carousel theme.  This is just one of the horses I completed.  It was fun and I still remember the fun times we had painting the many items.  She was so talented in every aspect.  I do miss her terribly.

I took this picture from the tower in Venice.  Love all the tile roofs and muted colors of the buildings.  I may just need to return to Italy, not necessarily Venice.

Added another Marilyn tote to my collection.  Have about ten more that I can do.  I finished the french theme tote and will be making another one of them.  I just love to sew.

We are expecting 88 degrees today.  Hot for our coastal town in California.  I have a collection on suns that are hung on a wall of the front porch.  Most came from Mexico.  I Love the sun and this just makes me smile.  Have a wonderful week, I know I will.

I made this fabric into a small zipper bag.  Just loved the look on Audrey's face.  Another classic movie that I love.  Have a great week.

Newest tote bag.  I found this wonderful French fabric that is canvas weight, I lined it and will be putting handles on when I decide what kind I want.  I love the  design and just could not buy the fabric.  It was very pricey, but I just had to have it.

Linen embroidered guest towel I made for a small craft fair.  I like working with linen.  I know it wrinkles but it is so classy.  I have made several linen blouses.  I like the feel and comfort.

Fabric book I made for grandson.  The fabric in the back was his quilt to go with his book.

Marilyn goes shopping.  Another shopping bag to carry in the car. We pay .25 per bag if we don't bring our own.  California no longer gives out plastic or paper.  So, I have many bags and I make them for the girls too.  This is another fabric I found at a craft faire.  The heavy ticking is perfect for handling a load of grocery items.

Shopping bag for the super market.  I bring my own bags for shopping so I decided it should be fun.  Found this fabric at a quilt fair.  It is large so I can put lots of goodies inside.  Is there anybody classier than Audrey Hepburn?  I don't think so.  Off to have some fun in the sun.  Week end is awaiting.
