the power of positive thinking


Please be spring, please be spring, please be spring!!! The power of positive thinking (or sewing) can be oh so powerful. The weather went from 8 degrees this day last week to a balmy 64 here today! Playing outside, walks around the neighborhood, and drink on the porch...so much to do with so little time. You see, while it is warm today, it will inevitably snow on Sunday. I'm serious. God love Kansas.


So here I am with my new tote. I thought I would do a handbag, but I found this fabulous floral print and I thought a BIG bag would be called for. Bright colors and big flowers...at least I can think like spring. And carry my big, bright new bag!

very fancy & cute! I've carried this spring-like weather right into early spring cleaning & painting projects. Wish I was making cute bags instead!!!

I just came across your blog...What a cute bag for spring! I love the pink floral fabric! I am so inspired by many crafty blogs to try my hand at sewing again. It has been many, many years since I've had lessons. I read that you just purchased a new sewing machine. Do you have any advice on what a beginner should look for when purchasing a machine?
