A Weekend Sewing?


Oh, my goodness - all my good intentions haven't happened! It has been more than frustrating trying to work out why I can access the Internet via Google Chrome, but not through Internet Explorer. One thing I have learned is how to upload a pic through Picasa and now I am able to talk to you!

I have managed to finish off one secret RAK and make another - thanks to all who told me you thought my fabric choices would work - I think they have! The knitting bag is made from a pattern of mine that was in DUQ last year - Happy Bag!

With all the playing about with the computer, I have managed to answer most of my emails, still a few to go, I always seem to be lagging behind. I have all my family coming around in an hour or so and Ben, son-in-law will cook a barbie and the rest of us will stay inside in the cool, air conditioned house - oh, we are so lucky to have it on a day like this - a scorcher!

Hope you are enjoying a happy weekend!

Bag looks great!

Oh Lurline, the bag is gorgeous with those fabrics. Of course I do love red. And what about the rose, beautiful as well. I never did download google chrome because I'd heard about the hassles.

I too have been having awful problems with the internet over the last couple of weeks, and at time blogger has been less than perfect.
I love the bag and the colours are just yummy.

So how are you taking the 109 degree temperatures?
My husband left Friday for Perth and it was 22 degrees here....now he is melting!
He asked me if he should buy me any fabric from OZ and I told him NO it is too expensive over there!

Keep cool and Happy Sewing

Lurline ~ You did a wonderful job on the bag. Sadly, I didn't do any sewing this past weekend. Instead, I spent time playing with one of my grandsons.
