My Crazy Friend Lisa and Purses

My crazy friend Lisa came over yesterday and we made purses. She had called me the other day and said she would be here at 8 a.m. I understood her to say she would leave her home at 8 a.m. She lives an hour away so I figured I could get up early (7:30 a.m) have time to have some coffee, a shower and run the vacuum over the ugly black carpet in my bedroom. At 8 a.m. she called me for final directions - I was like WHAT!?!?! You are where? I was still in my jammies with my first cup of coffee in my hand. I told her, "come on woman, but you will have to be patient, I don't do much before I have at least one cup of coffee!"

We had a really good time chatting and sewing. We realized that we need to talk less when we sew, we made a few (many) mistakes and had to do a little (a lot) of ripping out. Oh well, lesson learned.

Here is my purse. I don't think it is a good picture, but you should get the idea. She embroidered my name and a little cross stitch design for me. She knows I like to do needle work! She is a sweetie and we have fun. Oh yeah, she brought me a cinnamon roll for breakfast - gotta love a girl who brings you sugar to the start the day!

Pin It Now!

Looks like you had a productive day and your bag is beautiful!

If she brought you sugar to start the day she sounds like a true friend to me.

Love the bag - I need to make some more, its ages since I did one. Something else to add to the list, but more importantly all I can think of is sugary foods and have doughnuts stuck in my head. I may have to go out and get some now!
