Just Another Friday

I didn't do much crocheting this weekend like I thought I was going to do but, I did get some things done.

But, first let me point out that I did a blog review over at Andrea's blog Knits and Knots. So if you all like to check it out you totally can do so HERE


Now time for me to go to my show and tell. Have a couple of things to show.
My first show and tell is my mom's fun fur purse. She fell in love with those fun fur purses I did to sell in the boutique so I whipped my mom up one for herself.
She wanted a purse where it can have a long strap that can go around her head and arm.

See aint it so pretty. Nellie totally loves it she didn't want to take it off. It's not hot enough for her to wear this yet but, shoot who says, I can't get all her summer clothes crocheted or sewn up now.

I want her to wear this with a little blue jean skirt. I think it would look nice with a blue jean skirt.


I also started on a purse but, haven't finished it yet. I am just getting started on something different then want I have done before.

I know by looking at this you wont know that this is a start of a purse so after I am done you all will be amazed at how it turns out lol.

Also back to a little sewing.

There you have it yet another Friday. So everyone have a great weekend take care of yourselves and family.:)

I love how your girls always have big smiles on their faces when they're wearing your creations. They must love telling everyone at school, "My mom made this!" Great job also on the purses. Your purses are so much fun.

Lovely stuff at the boutique, also. I hope that goes really well for you.
