Progress :)

The little bag is done  :)  
It has some padding between the brocade outside and satin inner lining,
a little handle and drawstring cord.
Inside the bag is a little rectangle, removable, piece of coroplast--covered with the fabric--that holds the bottom nice and flat. 

I'm really pleased about getting this one done.  It's a gift for my good friend who brought me the lovely daffodils!  Her son is terminal with a brain tumour and she brings ME flowers!  We had tea, ate a huge piece of cake each and chatted the day away. 

Some more cards made this week--I love doing the faux silk technique with tissue, but this time I used a little napkin.  I separated the napkin to get the top layer off, scrunched it up, then carefully opened it and put it on some cardstock to which I had applied glue.  Each piece has a different coloured cardstock under the napkin and I used 2/3 colours of Glimmer Mist on each one. 

I'm still working on my Project Jar, getting the photos picked out and printed.
Another big green garbage bag goes to re-use with unwanted clothes.
There is one more piece of paper in the jar--that comes out tomorrow and then I can put a whole new batch in!
So the list goes on!

I'm so impressed with myself  :)   toot, toot.
