A few changes...

Hey there!  I just wanted to let ya'll know, that for the next 6 months I will be blogging over at DiabetesSisters website.  My blogging over there will focus being a woman, living with diabetes.  Here is the link to my part of the SisterTALK Blogs.,,, please check me out!  You should also check out some of the other bloggers too!

I will still be blogging here, but I figure I am going to keep my diabetes blogging to a minimum at In the Short Rows and focus more on my crafting and homemaking stuff, for now. 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  We are pet sitting for a friend, so Waylon has been enjoying some much needed doggie play-dates with his best friend Roxy.  I did some very fun wedding dress shopping yesterday with my cousin and today is looking like a good day to make a new apron and otherwise be lazy :-)  Happy Sunday!

Too many bags

Hubby says I have too many bags.  It's a good thing he was talking about the number of purses and duffel bags I have...otherwise I might have used one of those bags to knock him upside the head.  In his defense, I have been making a lot of bags for myself lately.  Some of this stems from winter boredom and too much time on Pinterest. But the main reason is that I would like to start selling some of my crafts.  I figure I can't sell stuff if I haven't test driven the design.  This is my newest addition to my ever growing stash of purses!

 I needed a bigger bag to carry all of my junk and various diabetes related paraphernalia, so I made this messenger bag.
 My favorite part is the stitching.  I did this with my grandmother's old Kenmore.

 I put books in the bag to take pictures, but it is plenty big enough for all of my gear.
I love the simple outside and the fun vibrant lining, it makes me happy!  Would you buy a bag like this?
