    This is what I did this weekend. It was a lot of fun. I am going to make 2 more saddle bag purses. I put pockets on the inside. Hoping to have them done before the weekend. This is a first for me and I am loving every minute of it.

    I fought the worst headache I've had in a year:-(
    Then I had insomnia and was up all last night. That happens to me when I have a migraine. I'm gonna crash tonight.

    Well,didn't get much quilting done,that's for sure! Sat night we got 1 1/2" snow!!! DH came running in to wake me up about 11:00 pm to come see! My son says in the 10 years he has lived here, he has never seen snow! This is Southern California, after all!! It was magical-I went out in my nightgown and robe and slippers and took photos all over the yard!! My son came home about 11:30 and took the dogs out to throw snowballs at!! Called my DS in Vanuatu to show her, too. Got to bed about 2:00 and couldn't sleep! Snow was still there in the AM. Sun was DH's birthday, so we just "hung out". Today I HAVE to work on Uncle Bob's quilt!!

    I did something other than quilt this weekend...I made soap. 9 bars of soap. It was alot of fun & I'm gonna make more soap, with different fragrances and essential oils. They should make nice gifts.

    I took care of my granddaughter, made pita bread for my daughter and egg bread for aandwiches. Picked up pretty purple fabrics for a floral quilt for me (if I ever get to it) and border fabric for granddaughter's doll quilt. I do so love fabric!

    went to Mountak Point to look for seals, none were there this time, not quilting for the moment. Have to finished quilts but I am procrastinating and deciding if and how I should quilt them on my sewing Singer.
    Would like to start on a new quilt but not sure for whom at this moment
    my cousin wants me to make her table mats for the summer, not sure how

    My BFF came over and we finished organizing my sewing room on Saturday. Then on Sunday we went to Fredericksburg for great German food and some fabric shopping.

    Sat. ran like a crazy woman, but took a photography class that I loved. Sun. was a sew in with 2 sisters. Looks like we are meeting weekly as I have created 2 monsters. Although, 1 very old machine might have bit the dust as it has power but no "oomph".

    Was a great week end!

    Love your purses!

    Was laying down for hours with a migraine. Not fun at all.

    Loving Mama, Thanks, sorry for the migraine. I know how that goes. Can get them and last as long as a week or more. But not this past weekend. But DH was sick with the flue all weekend. So I had fun sewing.

    We had a 30% chance to get some of that snow. It never showed up. Was kinda of sad - would have been fun. But also kind of glad since my employer, a farmer, wasn't too happy about it due to oranges still on the trees and new almond bloom that needs warmth & bees to pollinate.
