Cute Little Bag #2

Tonight was the three hour Survivor I went to the sewing room to watch and started a new little bag. I love the way the zipper curves over the top of the bag....but I'm sure I'd like it if it went straight across too...and it would mean even less work....maybe the next one.

Although I really do like the look of these....hmmm. The two pieces of fabric were from a wall hanging I had done but never finished. I like it better in the bags.....I have one more piece so stay tuned.

Cute Little Bag

I was so tired tonight I figured I'd be in bed by 10 pm. But when Greta Van Sustern came on I was glued to the TV with the story she was covering. So I went upstairs to watch it (I can hear the TV better up there) and picked up this little bag I had cut out. It was a pattern featured in this months Quilting Arts magazine. I had ordered some of the rhinestone zippers needed to make I just started sewing.

It's a really cute little bag...and made up in about a half-hour. I see more of these in my future. I really do have sort of a bag fetish! They make great gifts so I have a good excuse :)

I made my first trip to Las Vegas on Thanksgiving for 4 days. Some of my family members met me there and we had a blast. They are well-versed in "Vegas", so I had great tour guides. They gave me a celebration of my 60th birthday (was in Sept), because I never see them on that day. Love the glasses (HA)....thanks Teresa...I'll get you back!

This was the view from my room at the Mandalay Bay...the strip and the airport. Loved the hotel and the casino. By the time I was done I had probably seen and played a couple slots in 10-12 other casinos.

Friday night we went to "old downtown"...Fremont Street...loved the old feeling...and slots that take quarters! We rode trams and cabs and monorails, and walked ALOT....ate buffet and ESPN....and shopped great stores.

Saturday we went to Ceasar's Palace to see Bette Midler...FABULOUS!!!!...still Divine!

Thanks everyone...I had a great time!!!!!
