Back to work after the Holidays :)

My daughter spent the last part of her Christmas vacation with us last week. We had a really good time :) She's a junior at James Madison University getting her BFA in Graphic Design and Printmaking. When she was a freshman we attended a craft show and she saw a purse made from men's ties. The $ tag was too high at the time so I decided to make her one...and a tradition was born! This past weekend I made her 3rd tie purse using ties from my husband's late Uncle Jack. The strap for the purse was made from the tie she bought her brother (he didn't really like it) but it makes an awesome strap! I'm going to make one for myself this week after the deadlines are over. I like to match like patterns or colors - like paisleys or stripes - but Kellie likes the mix.

She also wanted a picture with Lexi for her facebook page. As you can see, she posterized it in Photoshop :)

Can't wait to finish my assignments and sew again!
