We Got Rain


We got much needed rain today. The rain gauge at my house said 1". Boy will my little garden peas start filling out now. I get like a child when I can go out to the garden and pick something fresh. Guess you could classify me as simple minded. I like simple things.

I bought these 3 little purses at Walmart, for $1.50 each. I had most of the little iron ons already so just got the iron out and went to work. It took about 5 minutes, then i started on the bow on the green one. I think that took about an hour, I even went next door to my neighbors for her to tie it, and after she did I was working with it to tack it down a little and messed it up. So after kicking myself several times, I pinged Pat, she calmed me down and got me to laughing and about 30 minutes later I decided no more, that the next one I tie will have to suffice. So by the time I got ready to take the photo of them, I was so frustrated, I didn't try too hard to straighten them out and line them up and make them hang straight. I forgot to take a photo of the back which also has something on the back pocket. Sorry about the poor quality. I am sure you know how you lose interest in something after fighting with it for an hour.

School will be out next week and one of these will be for my 8 year old Granddaughter, that will be getting several awards in her class. But I couldn't leave out the 2 year old, so she will get one too. The third one, the green one that I was ready to chew up and spit out, will hang in my work room to remind me this is about having fun, not anything to stress you out. That is a quote from Pat. She often has to remind me of that. Have a good day.

They will like that. Nat is carrying around what she calls a "bookbag". It's a small purse looking thing. She sees Sis with one.

This brings back memories of when my Aunt Bettie (my mom's sister) made me a blue jean pocketbook with patches sewn on them. Back in the day that was a popular item. She made it out of old bluejeans. I wish I still had it. I know the girls will love them.
