Several of us are going for high tea at a wonderful tea house in Boulder City, NV. It's about 40 miles from our houses to the tea house but it is worth the drive. We car pool so that is fun, too. We are all dressing up and wearing the bags we have made and the hats that we have decorated. It's tomorrow so I just got my hat finished. Of course we will also shop at a Fiddlesticks, a great quilt shop, Periwinkle Cottage, a fun gift shop, Goat Feathers, a large antique and consignment shop. We'll need to burn up some calories so we will walk between the shops.

IT really was fun making this bag for my granddaughter who will be married on July 12. I used 1 lace arm and satin from the train of a wedding dress that I bought at a thrift shop. I should say I stole it. It is wonderful and was sooo cheap. The bag is embellished with clear Swarovski crystals, lace, crystal handles, some buttons from the cuff and a big white rose. I hope that she likes it. I made it large enough that she can also use it as a special summer bag.

I'm making a wedding bag for my granddaughter who will be married next month. It's not a tiny bag but is made from a wedding gown that I picked up at a thrift shop for $10.00. I took one lace sleeve and a piece of satin from the train to line it. I used heavy interfacing to give it shape. Hopefully she'll be able to use it as a summer bag after the wedding. I'll post another photo when the bag is finished.
