what have I been doing?

well there's a story there.

 A little story.

I've been making purses.

 lots and lots of purses.
I've dubbed them Saddlebags.

 i road tested them on my 17 year old by making her a star wars themed purse.

she could put all her stuff in it

while she bopped around the city for the summer with friends.

 then it turned into a school bag that holds all the stuff that she doesn't want to get smooshed in her backpack.

 so it's been thrown around used as a pillow, sat on, thrown in the wash, dragged on the floor and generally beat up and tortured

 then she thought I would be able to sell them at the annual Christmas bazaar at school. so I set about making a few out of material I already had on hand.

 I made a promise to myself I was not going to buy more fabric for future projects I was never getting to, no matter how amazing the fabric was.

so I had a backlog of fabric to choose from

I sewed and sewed and eventually ended up with 35 fun and unique bags to sell at the bazaar.

I also took some of my cq stuff. I got lots of compliments and questions about CQ which are nice

I didn't sell any thing.

so now I have lots of Christmas presents and new items up in the ETSY store

and a rather cynical view of bazaars.
