What's New

I had a little brain child in the middle of the night a few weeks ago. Does this happen to anyone else? Your sleeping soundly and a little idea begins to form. It grows until it wakes you begging for attention. Then you spend the rest of the night nursing it. I don't know why these ideas can't come at more reasonable hours. But just like my children they think they need to be born in the middle of the night. 
 This idea came just before our last boutique. It said it would be a great idea to spend the next few days making cute little drawstring bags and terry cloth bath mitts. That they would make great gift and sell well. Which fortunately they did. I'd been a little upset if I'd lost sleep and had nothing to show for it. Yes I do love my sleep.
 I decided to do two different gift bags. One with three mini sampler bars and the other with two full sized bars. I've made a few more bags and have added them to my Etsy Shop.
 I've also been working on my pineapple blocks.  I keep ending up with these little bits. They are too cute to throw away so I had to come up with a home for them in these little rail fence blocks.

  2. Those drawstring bags look terrific. I'm glad they were good sellers even if they did lose some sleep. Hopefully you will be able to catch up with your sleep.
