I gave her two choices on how we could celebrate her birthday...she and her family could come for a birthday brunch on Sunday or she could come for brunch on Monday and we could dillydally together! I'm so happy she chose to dillydally! Last summer a group of Minnesota designers had a "Blog Hop" and Valerie and I followed it daily and made some of the projects. We especially liked a bag that was highlighted on a July 3rd post on the Pieces of Work blog. In August I visited that shop...of course I bought the pattern and grommets...Val's birthday seemed like the perfect time to make them.
Here's Val...sewing at my dining room table...Teacup insisted on taking up most of her chair! I think Teacup was jealous...she doesn't like to share...and we were celebrating something other than her existence! ;-)
Our bags in progress.
We sewed...we munched...we solved all of the world's problems...we accomplished a lot. Washington and Lincoln would have been proud...I'm sure they took time to dillydally...how else could they have solved the problems of their day!
