Patchwork bag

On the heels of my patchwork pillow, I decided to make a patchwork bag based on this great tutorial.

I have no idea what I'm going to use it for, but it's cute!

Believe it or not, I sewed!!!!

I KNOW it's been forever since I've done ANYTHING interesting (besides getting married). This morning Joe trotted off with his buddy to go geocaching and I hit my sewing room early.

I'm not even really sure what possessed me to make a pillow, but I did.

I love it!

I'm Married!

This post is for my Mother, Dianne, and my dear friend Lera who have both NAGGED ME TO DEATH TO UPDATE MY STALE BLOG.

Joe and I were married on March 16th at 5:00 pm at the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.

We weren't alone. My Mother and two of her friends flew down for the big event, two of my Mom's friends who were vacationing in Arizona came (Hi Dianne!), Joe's sister, her friend AND my friend and her boyfriend came. Eleven of us all together.

Let me say this. We were ALL so impressed with the staff at the Chapel. They were professional and made us feel like we were the most important wedding they ever had. And Elvis??? Good grief!! He was absolutely INCREDIBLE! So incredible, that I think I was crushing on him.

We went to the Grand Canyon, Red Rock Canyon and Hoover Dam while we were there. We ate more food than I've ever eaten in my life and spent more than our fair share of money in the casinos. We are already planning a return trip.

I have done NOTHING on the crafty front. N-O-T-H-I-N-G. In fact, I'm still working on processing hundreds and hundreds of vacation and wedding photos. I am having so much fun with Photoshop.

MAYBE I'll have something crafty to show soon.
