this tutorial on You Tube. Here are the results. I think they turned out pretty nice for my first time making one, as well as doing wire wrapping. I already taught the technique to two co-workers and we will all wear them to work on Wednesday.

On this couch is where I do my sewing. Below the Ott light is a table with many of my supplies, cans of trims, threads, etc. Chloe is my constant companion, and either is next to me or on the chair by the window looking out. Here she is in a rare cowboy pose on the couch.

I had a great birthday. I took the whole day off work, I drove to Lansing and Mason, Michigan and stopped at some quilt and needlework shops. At the end of the day, my husband met me for dinner after he got off work. I had coconut shrimp and steak!

My son's girlfriend is studying to be a nurse. He is going out to AZ to visit in a couple weeks. I asked him if it would be ok to make give her a homemade belated Christmas gift. He said OK, so I sewed up this little purse, using a nurse embroidery and her favorite colors of green. She also likes outdoorsy. I think it turned out pretty cute. I hope she likes it. The pattern is from Lazy Girl Designs and is the Runaround Bag. I use it all the time, it is so easy to make.... Update 1-3-11: I dropped it off to my son today. He liked it, I could tell by his one word answer, "cool".
