Lots of new stuff!!

I LOVE this bag.... Its another Ellen Medlock pattern. Its called the Karma Bag! My mom and I both took a class at the sewing expo 2 yrs ago and made one... but I didn't like the fabric they gave us so I gave it away.... and after 2 yrs I finally get around to making another one... In fabric I do like!
This is vintage fabric from the attic of my great aunt in Nashville.... Mildred. The inside is lined with some adorable Scottie dog fabric I bought at Jo anns.... left over scraps from a wrap I made my mom for Christmas one year.
The EXTRA awesome thing about this bag is its exchangeable because of the way the hardware is made.... just twist off two of the little tips... slide this purse off another on... twist caps on and you're off with a different bag!
Now I gotta make some different bags to go with this! Which should help my ailing purse wardrobe.... cause I really love this bag!

My B-day was last month (big 36!) and this is what mom gave me....
An adorable and much needed crochet hook wallet.... check out the little scissor button!


Pretty back....

A easy crochet book,,,, garden journal (just around the corner and it'll be time to plant!!!) and a devotional book.






A cute embroidered towel....


A hand knit cotton wash cloth and hand made chai soap (smells SO good!!!)

She also gave me the cutest quilted wall hanging she made!!! But I forgot to take a pic... next time!!! Thanks Mom!!!
I'm so lucky... my husband and my mom give the best presents!!


For The Bald Man's B-day and V-day we went to ATL!!
Here's me below in my white wool coat I made this year!! Complete with welt patch pockets! Its pattern B5259.




Sorry bout the booty shot! haha! But I made these pants and I'm really happy about the fit!! The pattern was drafted from a well fitting RTW pair of pants.




Here's the button up blouse that fits!!!!!!!!! Its S2732! One of those patterns that has Cup size options!! I'm completely in love with having a button up that fits and I didn't have to do any adjusting to it except add a half inch on the upper side seam. No FBA!! I am so buying all cute patterns that have cup size options.... makes life simpler... who doesn't need that!



Another night in ATL at VIA, the Restaurant/club ... oh so hip place to be... haha we had a blast! Bald Mans nephew runs this place so we always go here when we're in town.


In the works..... the style project continues a bit more..... I'm making a Blazer using one of the fabulous cup option patterns I have (hoping it works as well at the blouse pattern did!!!) and crocheting a halter top for summer...
and still working on the Navy coat embellishments!
