Oh--MY---This morning I was quilting on the Sunday Best schnibbles and I kept hearing this "funny" squeaking" noise---it kept getting louder and it was coming from the computer table---
Finally--I got up and came over to investigate and there was the computer mouse--All upset-- Why--what ever is the matter with you--I asked her????
And she let me know in so many words that she was not a happy camper--
It seems she is upset because "Bubbles" whom she works for--got a new tote bag--but there is not enough room for her in it!!!!
As I try to keep "all" my critters happy--I went off to the sewing room--
An hour later I reappeared with this--
A nice bag to go with "Bubbles" when we travel--to hold all of Bubbles helper's and my battery charger and extra battery for the camera---
So now---thee "mouse" is once again happy!!!

Also on Saturday--
I don't know if I actually showed the fabric for inside the tote case---I did use all three of the fabrics I had gotten for the project--I got more of this one as it seems to be a nice one to have on hand for backgrounds etc.
I only got a 1/3 yard of the other two and here is all that is left from them--
That's all--I used the rest of the leftover for the mouse bag--and there I did have to piece now and then to get the pieces to work--but I was determined not to buy more fabric---and then--
Little sister and I walked over town--I had another PT appointment and of course we could not be that close to the Quilt shop and not go in---and little sister talks me into another piece of batiks for the bird quilts--she got two more pieces---
the joke here is---we still do not know "what" we will do with them??????

And look another BOM finish--this one is the Sentimental Journey one from the Raspberry Rabbit---remember when I won the pillow kit????  Well there was a spool of the Valdani thread in it--it is a pink and olive green mix--and so I decided to try this thread on here--I had been wanting to use some of this brand for awhile--well--I love it--love how the color changes--it was easy to work with and I know I will be ordering some more colors from the Raspberry Rabbit real soon!!!  I had also gotten the little heart trim a little while ago on a clearance sale--it goes perfect--right?????

Yes--everybody was right--it was a small Viola plant--or pansy as I call of them---I need to go out tomorrow and put it "in" the garden box!!!
Must go for now--another bom is calling me to finish it!!!!
Hugs to all---


  1. Hi Di! Love your stitchery, and you're right, the heart trim goes really well! And the Valdani thread is beautiful. Very nice job!! I love the mouse bag too!

  2. Happy mouse! Your electronics are going to cooperate so well for you because you dress them so nicely. And your bom is gorgeous too, love the heart fringe. L,A-

  3. So pleased you make a sleeping bag for all "Bubbles" helpers. Now they will all be happy.

    Love your BOM

    I did not sew today but did work on my glass.

  4. Your posts always make me smile. Love the bubbles bag. I thought you were talking about a real mouse *yikes!*

  5. Trouble maker! I'm reading this on Daisy, my shiny new laptop, and she doesn't have her own totebag, so I suppose I'll never hear the end of that. I'm glad she doesn't have a mouse!!! Your bag is cute.

  6. Great job girlfriend! Love the trim! A very nice touch indeed! Glad you love the Valdani as much as I do!


I love visitor's---and I really love to read your comments--sooo don't forget to leave me one!!!!:-)
