A little something for Marilyn...

So here's my latest project, a cute little bag for Marilyn and her parents!  Below some more pictures of the bag.  I'm rather proud of myself for finding some cheaper pink fabric from Target (a sheet set on clearance!) that I will be able to use for lots of girly things--quilts and bags.  Expect to see more pink in the near future! : )  

While I have been crafty at home, I've also gotten out to see an amazing exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Museum.  "Impressionism: Masterworks on Paper" is an amazing example of the little seen drawings that let to many well known impressionist works.  I was lucky enough to attend the Presidents  Opening and hear three wonderful speakers.  I was more impressed by the works of lesser known impressionists than the works of well known impressionist in the exhibition--such as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Edgar Degas.  Perhaps I just like pretty

Next up will be some Christmas crafts I've found in a magazine--my first attempt at cross-stitching and some cute Scandinavian garland. Wish me luck and hopefully the next posts will be soon!
