Today was a hot steamy day. I stayed outside and watched as the cement got poured for our workshop. Have you ever seen a cement truck with a neck like this. I wish my neck was long and skinny.... Oh well, back to the story. These young men worked really hard in this hot weather.
Do you see the guy closest to us with the belt on, he was working the truck from that control, amazing. I remember when my Dad and others would pull that concrete all over the place, you talk about a work out. Here are a few more pictures.
TaDah!!! Here it is all finished. What a mess in the yard... Why do buildings look so small with just the slab? It's going to be 30X50 building with a 20' covered front area. I'm so glad they got this poured today, because we are in the path for the tropical storm out in the Gulf.
Now I thought I would show you a purse I had done, which I call it my mistake bag. When I taught sewing in my shop a lady had cut all her strips to small. A measurement that wasn't in the quilt pattern. So when she got to the class, she just threw them in the garbage. OH MY, I grabed them up and told her she could use them in another project and she said no they are just to small 1 1/2" strips. She insisted she did not want them and bought more fabric.
I wish I had taken a picture of the bag I made her out of the strips. I had it all made when she came to the next class and she decided then, you can use all your fabric for something.
This bag spread like hot cakes and everyone wanted to do them, so I started doing classes making them. I have pictures of my bag, I tried to put each persons personality in each bag I would make if they purchased them. Anyway, thought this would give you some inspiration.
Can you tell mine is so full with quilting and magazines it's about ready to bust. It has pockets all inside and a long straps for handles.
