Sweating Glitter

I was looking forward to my grandson's visit this week. Well he will still arrive, just not until tomorrow. He was at camp all last week. My daughter said he needed to rest but I think she really needed more time to get laundry done.

I remember the laundry after a boy's camping trip.

So I spent the day making. I made two more shopping bags.

I put a pocket inside this one and it's lined with a heavy muslin fabric.

I made another blue one with a quilt square pocket on the outside, but Don said,
"If you're giving them away, I'll take that one." Another convert to cloth shopping bags so that's a good thing.

I have also been making some cards over the past week:

I find myself getting simpler instead of more complex with cards, cutting back on the glitter and bling.

One of my friends has a sign in her craft room: 

**I craft so much I sweat glitter.**

We have been having beautiful weather here.  I had a nearly perfect walk yesterday and it is just as nice today. I did my yoga on the deck and now it's time for another walk.  I will adjust to a different kind of activity when my grandson comes, but it will be good. More time outdoors if the weather holds.


  1. What a fun image, I craft so much I sweat glitter. I like the flower cards you made.

  2. Your "making" day produced some great results.

  3. Are you selling your wares on Etsy perhaps? :-)
    I can't be crafty to save my life I admire and am jealous of all your bloggers with talent.
    Enjoy your visit with your grandson

    1. Haha. Why yes -- just send me cash directly and I will gladly not send your desired items next Tuesday.
      I was going to suggest you make your own cushions in commenting on your blog, but then I thought better of it.

  4. Those bags are very nice as are the cards. Have a wonderful visit with your grandson!

  5. Think your grandson will provide all the exercise you need. Have fun with him. You two always seem to have a great time.

  6. That's a nice bag. And I am glad you are so crafty with the cards and the sewing. Enjoy your time with Don and your grandson.

  7. Goodness! You are so creative, Olga. These are beautiful, both bag and cards. I'm afraid I've collected too many cloth type bags since Hawaii has done away with plastic bags (which is a good things since our beaches are getting littered with tiny micro plastics).

  8. You are so fortunate to have the vision to continue crafting and sewing. I miss doing those now. Great bag ideas.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
