New Purse Made

I made this for a family member for her birthday.  She is 80 + and I wanted to put a light color lining on the inside so it is easier to see things, I also put zippered pockets in there.  I think the bag looks much neater with the zipper pockets.  Loved how it turned out.  The outer fabric is from Joan's home dec line and the inside is just some cotton I had on hand.  I found the free pattern here and made changes to it.  I like this bag as it is just the right size, not too big or small.

New House in Eugene, Oregon

We finally have a contract on our house in Tampa.  It has been on the market with two Realtors for nine months.  Last Sunday we went to Eugene for a few days to look for a house to buy and this is it.  It has two bedrooms downstairs (a master and guest) and upstairs is a loft and another bedroom.  There are three full bathrooms, two down and one up.  Several built-in all over the place.  Going to rest today, just got back and then packing starts again tomorrow.
