Ok, so I should really be in bed since I have to be at work by 7 a.m., but I finished my bra purse and this is the back of it. I had started to put beads on it and then I took them off. It was just too much for me. I have another bra, I got two in the package I bought and I am thinking of making one more and seeing if I can't embelish it on the machine instead of by hand.
I was excited this week because I finally completely finished one of the smocked ornaments I started 4 months ago. The pattern called for a 3 inch ball and the finished project was too big for that size ball. It seems other ladies at the smocking group had this same problem so I can't chalk it up to beginners booboo. I padded the ball with quilting batting and that made it fit better.

Next month the lady who leads the smocking group is going to show me how to make a different ornament with ribbon.
I also finally got around to washing the material for a spring bag I am making. So maybe this coming week I will get my other smocked ornament completely finished, my bag cut out and worked on, another bra bag worked on, some pillow cases cut out and made, and a bathrobe cut out. I always have more ideas than time!
Sew Long for Now!

Looks great! I heard you'd finished that ornament from some ladies last night. Way to go! See you soon-
