Successful Challenge

This week I have joined some online friends in a week long challenge. I love and thrive when a challenge is placed before me. It's like I play a game with myself to complete something in a specific time frame. One of the things I wanted to do was to make myself a shoulder bag in the style of one I saw at the night market last Wednesday night. It has lots of pockets to fit all the essentials us girls need but still small enough for me to hang across my shoulder and still have my hands free. Having been a quilter I certainly have no shortage of fabric, so my challenge for my Monday was to start my new shoulder bag. I am now sitting here satisfied that I have succeeded in my Monday challenge. Not only did I start my bag but I finished it. It is amazing how doing anything creative with my hands I am so amazingly as peace.

    Congratulations on a Very Successful First Day of the challenge!

  2. What a wonderful bag and a great thing to do. I find that I also am at peace and love to do things with my hands, be creative and have fun while doing so. You've got a way of doing things, of making things that impresses the heck right out of me. Way to go Davine!


I would love to hear your comments.
