Hectic Week

I am not sure if you noticed I had to put my shop in vacation mode Monday morning.

We were planning a last minute out of state trip for my husband to do some repairs to our home we were renting out. Then Coco (my studio mascot and little fur baby/3rd child lol) started having seizures late that night...this was a first and she is over 11 years old. We were scared and started to head out in search of a 24/7 vet. Long story short they did some blood work and found nothing wrong. We are waiting to see if it was a couple of different things that were new to her this past week...Meanwhile she seems to be doing much better.And hopefully stays that way.I have a lot on my plate right now and the timing could not be a whole lot worse.The first couple of days I felt like I had to hover and watch her every move-she was pretty restless and kept me awake all night.

I did manage to work on a few things somehow, apart from taking long naps these past few days ; ) 
A new knit hat that I'm trying to work out a pattern for, and a little zipper bag.In the shop now-it's the echinacea print bag from Anna Maria Horner.

Dream Projects

What are your dream projects~ Your favorite projects to work on? The ones you never get tired of making -even if no one else likes them?

If I could choose anything to work on every day, I'd pick smaller bags, or some sort of accessory... I could make these all day. 
I love small 'canvases' where I can choose embellishments like this scrap of vintage lace trim and maybe some buttons and mix up the fabrics...

This time around I also 'free style embroidered'(is that a term?lol) around the minty flower centers. I think of it as 'boho eclectic'...

As you can see, this one is just big enough for a larger phone-or what my kids jokingly call 'my tablet'.lol

can you see some of the embroidery around the minty sections, here? It's been stormy and dark out so it's hard for me to get a good closeup.

I like bags this size for all of the errands I run-now that its back to school time, I feel like I am always hopping in and out of the car or on an errand run -I always want a bag I can just grab and go with-so these are perfect for that-Speaking of back to school-don't forget about my coupon code for the shop, you can take 10 % off anything with code:
