Applique IX: Sew Ready for Christmas

At last I have finished Amy Butler's Frenchy bag. As you can see, I used a toile. I think my aunt will love it and not just because I made the pockets inside fit for pens and pencils as well as a cell phone. I can't believe this bag took so long! Next week, our last week, I will start Sissy's overnight case. Actually, I hope to do some work on it this week. I should at least give you a peek at the fabric I am using.

As for the camera, I found it just before I fell into bed on Wednesday night. The dude was printing out our tickets between London and the northeast of England (where his mother lives) and he was bitching that there was no paper. I knew we hadn't used a whole ream of paper, so I got down on my hands and knees and looked into the desk cabinet (it's supposed to be a CPU holder). There is a shelf in there, and I don't think either of us realized that it doesn't hit the back wall of the cabinet. The camera fell back there, and then the ream of paper (minus 40 or so sheets) fell on top of it. I must have looked there 4o times! Who actually moves things when they are desperately searching for something?

Gorgeous bag! Good thing about the camera. Things have a way of hiding sometimes. Sheesh.

BTW, isn't that the exact same fabric as Leslie's curtains? Freaky.

I'm glad you found your camera - and I'm convinced that the gremlins put it there.

THat bag is beautiful! It's a good thing that the Dude needed to print something, otherwise we would have to continue to go photo-less!
