bend the rules

I made a couple clutches from Amy Karol's fabulous book Bend-The Rules Sewing. I'm trying to work up the nerve (and find the resources) to try other thing.

This one is exactly the size the pattern dictates. Both fabrics for the bag I bought at Michael's & I had the button fabric in my stash from the tissue holders

This one is clearly a bit larger. The outer fabric came from a table cloth my sister Charlotte was selling at a yard sale. The inner. polka dot fabric was a napkin, on clearance, at Target. Vintage button & hand embroidery. I like it.

Holiday in Corolla, North Carolina

1 week with extended family. It was nice. Beautiful weather for most of the week.
The dogs seemed to enjoy it.

This was in the neighborhood as we headed to the beach...2 HUGH ones. I had never seen anything like it in real life. I just thought they were beautiful. I only wish they had been blooming.

I don't know who these people are, they just got married RIGHT behind us.
