I'm Late

I'm late posting today.  I've had a busy day.  I went walking in a balmy 51 degrees this morning.  It was great.  Then, of course, since it is Monday, I cleaned bathrooms.  Before I could figure out what I did wrong on the computer, BFF#2 was here.  We had a very fun session of show and tell.  Late lunch was next at one of my favorite places to eat.  White truffle mushroom pizza, lobster and crab rangoon along with a salted caramel brownie (with ice cream) was on the menu.   Luscious!  Fun day.  So that's my excuse for being late to post.

I finished the Bristol Bag.

 It's not perfect but I am happy with it.   Tiny things take such a long time.  The little squares on the end of the ribbons took all day.  I opted to just make four squares and to back them with leftover fabric instead of stitched ones.

This is the thread winder.

I got a text late this morning that Son#2 and DIL are at the hospital!  
Here is the birth announcement so far:
The words at the bottom say "Good things come to those who wait"..  


  1. Love the red accessories! Your finishing looks super! Very sweet mermaid birth announcemenr!

  2. Congrats on your finish, it's beautiful.
    Lunch sounded delicious.
    I guess that saying on the Birth Sampler is really true!
