What do you think??

 Well, the last couple days have been filled with doctor and dentist appointments, but I've still managed to get in a bit of sewing...my Etsy shop is in shambles and I need to really prepare for the not one...but two...craft fairs I plan on this Spring...so I thought I'd show you the last couple bags I finished. This is the latest one...I  have noticed how popular owls have become and I've made a few owl items...and when I saw this fabric I knew I had to get it. I also found some matching ribbon which I got and will use on a future project.
 I couldn't believe I had a piece of wool that was almost a perfect match to one of these silly owls...I just copied one from the fabric...
 The inside...my usual...pockets all around the inside...
 I finished this bag yesterday and boy did it take me forever to sew on all those daisies...I had started it before Don's surgery and with the lack of sleep and trying to make him comfortable...it just took forever! I really like how it turned out though...what do you think??? It's happy to me!
 Here's a close up of the daisies and the million stitches...or so it seemed I put on them! Don't get me wrong...I love every second of the work!
 Here's the back...a pocket full of daisies...well one daisy on a pocket!
The inside...even the lining fabric is happy to me! But then I'm partial to flowers...they make me happy!
I just finished cutting a couple more bags, so I hope to finish both of those in a couple days...Don is feeling better...staying awake longer...and the BEST part is...sleeping at night!! That means I can finally sleep!!

Today it finally feels like winter is back...we have been expecting rain...hoping and praying for it here...it is slow coming, but it looks like it has been snowing all day up in the mountains...I can see it from my porch. Rain is great...snow is better ...and boy do we need it!!

I have a pork roast in the crock pot...and I just finished making pico de gallo...it's carnitas tacos for dinner tonight...Taco Tuesday is popular at many restaurants here, so why not at home! 
That's about all that's happening here...
Until next time...enjoy the day!!
