Bag Lady.....

I often share how much I LOVE my job, made even more special by my very delightful students. On Wednesday nights I have the HONOR of teaching Kim.....but the truth is Kim can teach me lots!!!
She owns one of my favorite quilt shops ( Starry Night Hollow in Encinitas) and when she came to class carrying a new bag she had designed I begged her to have a class so I could come be HER student. She kindly said yes and I now have another darling bag that I love!!!
I wasn't alone in my "bag" love. Meghan said she would LOVE me to make her exactly the same bag for her "teacher" tote, so needless to say I was thrilled to make her one too! Not wanting to make it exactly the same, I added a front pocket to hers......
....and deeper inside pockets too. I measured them to fit all of the classroom papers she will come home with. It was lots of fun to make, and I hope it lets my favorite teacher know how special she is to me.
So...the week ahead looks to be plenty busy. The kids will sign the papers on their new home and are still busily packing. Our next group of Dutch relatives arrives this week too...but my biggest hope is we can still put aside some time for a "girls" movie night. This one just looks to sweet to miss!!!! Happy week everyone. XXX

Yeah! Can't wait to try it out. I've heard good things about the movies. It's at the top of my list of things to do this week. Also, a trip to Target. Cute flats for $10. Ikea too! Want to go?
