And success

Not only did the next two breads work out better (Okay, so they sort of rose too much and ended up a lot "fluffier" than I like my bread but that's better than little homebaked bricks.) but I also managed to finish quite a few new bags this morning.

Not bad for a day that started at 5 am with a tension headache, huh? Not all the bags were finished today (I haven't had a chance or the inclination to post earlier this week) and none of them were made from start to finish. All had zippers already installed but not much else. The sewing machine gave me problems. So, I took the bottom plate out and cleaned it and it's running nicely again.


I've tried different sizes of box bags, made a bunch of very simple pouches and finished up two pyramid bags that had been lying around unfinished for months. There are still a lot of those scrappy raw-edge applique bags waiting to be finished but the zippers for them didn't arrive until a few minutes ago. Hopefully, I'll be done with them soon, too. I really want to made big bags and/or purses again.

Yay for the bread and the bags! Peapod was out of the bread I wanted and they don't tell you, it just shows up on your order list, so I don't have bread. I figure I can wait until I get some on my regular Monday grocery trip.

Boy you have been busy Doris !
I am toying with getting my machine out so that it reminds me that it is there!
Ahhh but first we have to move the extra computer to the garage.
I think those little pyramid bags are so cute!

You have been busy. I use my polka dot bag everyday. I keep all my beading "extras" (needles, tools, threads, etc.) in it and in my big bag. It was just what I needed.

That's too bad, Marilee. And too bad you don't live just down the road - I'd supply you with bread.

I know what you mean, Katie. I had to do some rearranging first, too.
I'm having way too much fun ......

Arline,
I use mine for storage, too. Needles, scissors and especially all those ribbons I use at the edges. They're just perfect for that.

LOVE these bags... I have been enjoying my two little bags, I use them just about every weekend when I go to my son's.

The colors are so happy!

The bread sounds yummy too.
