Getting there.......

Had a snow day yesterday thanks to the storm that went through here.   Used part of the time to try to find the software installation CD Notebook that I know is around here somewhere.....no success there.

However, I did make progress on my purse.  Everything is now done except for sewing the zipper panel in for the main body of the purse and the final binding for the top edges.   Pic shows the purse, but color isn't the greatest because I had to use my phone to take the pic.

Only problem I've had in making this critter is figuring out how to put the zipper panel in at the top.   Instructions say to "pin the panel and baste everything together".   What they don't say is how you're supposed to do all that.............grrrr.   Good thing I've been sewing for a lot of years.   I think I've finally figured out how to do it.   Just need to trim the panel so that it fits better and then I can stitch it in tonite when i get home from school.

Gratitudes:
1. Nice neighbors who help clear snow from driveways after a big storm.
2. Plow Drivers who raise the plow when they drive by your driveway so as not to bury your driveway again.  =)

I love instructions that don't instruct! You'll be ready in style! Those could be the only flowers you see before Orlando, too!
