Pfaffy a workin'!

Don't fall off your chairs when you read this!
I gave Pfaffy a workout today! 8-)
She was quite happy and gave me no problems!We made a bag together for "The Grandmother's to Grandmother's Campaign" from the Steven Lewis Foundation. I've never worked with beaded ribbon or mesh before. It went OK... 8-)
I had committed to making 6 for friend Nd, but since I was sick for so long, I am behind schedule, so I hope to have them all made this week... These are the other prints I will be working with. Must remember to watch those directional fabrics!!! 8-)
I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend! 8-)

Happy stitchings!
Myra

The first one turned out very nice...and I'm sure the others will, too. (I know sometimes it's tricky when using directional fabrics, but you have reminded yourself, so you should be fine!!!)

the bag is wonderful
Love the mesh in there, never used that either
I have that light as well, couldn't figure out how to attach it and not have the wire hanging, how did you do that?

The bag is so cute! I am glad you are up and running!

I just made a runner from a directional fabric and it's good to keep it in mind!

Happy sewing!
