Hello all my blog friends. I have been lax. My focus has been disturbed. Bob would say it was me that was disturbed. Not true!!!! I will defend my uniqueness as just that. NOT disturbed.
I have been working on a pattern, no not one to share with you (I wish), but one I bought. First to give credit to the pattern maker. It was the Serged Satchel by Indygo Junction. It is very cute with lots and lots of ruffles. I was so intrigued by ruffles. I still am. I just don't know what there is about ruffles. Let's see---they are cheerful--happy--carefree----they just make you want to giggle. Well that is this purse. Now you will say it is really cute AND it is. I am just really glad you can't pick it up and check it over. I kept finding things in this pattern that made little sense to me. Now 7 years of 4-H and I should be able to read a pattern. But I am telling you I was confused. But what I just didn't get I faked. So next time I will use my ruffler on my machine. I didn't use my serger. I was able to do it on my machine. It turned out ok but will probably go in the bin of no return unless some little girl wants it. Now so you don't think I am being really mean to the writer of this pattern, in all honesty my main reason for buying and using a pattern is for a technique. AND from this pattern I learned a few things that I can use in the future. Maybe I should just buy a really good sewing book and learn or relearn some of this stuff.
I do think I should do another patchwork tote. I have a couple I would like to make for gifts. My sister and my niece would like to have one. I know they should have already had one and now that I have told you I just will have to get them done.
So for now I guess I should go.
Catch ya later
