Show and Share Sunday

Hi Everyone!

     As you may (or may not) know, I have been waiting for the snow to come to my town <3.


It did snow for 2 hours in Gilroy though, just an hour over the hill and where I volunteer my time on Sundays. Bummer that it couldn't have happened today..... Oh well, we did have some spectacular sunshine here in Los Banos yesterday, I took my new camera out for a drive and got some amazing photos.

Almond blossoms

Almond orchard.

     I also finished another skirt-to-purse. I used half of the skirt and added some denim to the top, as well  as denim straps. I retained the original pleats on this skirt, making the pleats off center on the purse. I hand sewed the straps and hand sewed them in place. I added a fun little scrappy denim flower to the side, to hide a seam.

The skirt split in two. This was a Talbots skirt that I found at the thrift store. Fromie-kitty helped.

I flattened the bottom and added denim to the top.

I hand sewed the straps. Because I was breaking all of my sewing machine needles. :-(

The original skirt pleats are still here.

I hand sewed the straps on.

My scrappy little flower. I frayed the edges then added some fray check.

This print is just adorable, isn't it?

     Okay, now its your turn to show what you've got. Remember, come as you are and bring your besties. Please grab a button so that everyone knows where to find the party. If you haven't already, please follow. I <3 my followers!
