family and friends...

I made this commissioned Murphy Bag for a friend for her 40th birthday. She came over and picked all the fabrics and the style she wanted. If you have read the book "I Feel Bad About My Neck" by Nora Ephron than you know about the search to find the perfect bag. I was just like her, buying expensive logos trying to find a bag that met all my needs. They never did and I was sick to death of seeing everyone with my bag. I love carrying a bag that is perfect for me and one of a kind.

My friend Regina is a newly certified genealogist so I asked her to do our genealogy. I am totally amazed at the research she did! The book is incredibly well organized and easy to follow. Some of Kevin's family goes back to the early 1600's here in MA. Someday, when funds allow, we will have her delve deeper and research back to Europe, etc.

I made this ice/heat therapy Murphy Bag for a online friend when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She sent me a wonderful note of appreciation and I ended up making her another one:) She is doing better and on her way to being cancer free!

I've been enjoying your blog while trying to beat the heat. Your purses and bags are a great combination of utility and beauty. I especially liked your challenge quilt, Departure of the Sun. Very lovely.
