Bags, boots, and books

Another bag finished. I love this cool tree print!! I even put a zipper in the top of this one so I can use it as a purse too.

Not a lot going on around here, in the sewing room I mean.
Outside there is a lot going on.
A lot of MELTING SNOW!!!!

Enough melting snow, that I have (temporarily) put my snow boots away!!
I'm not dumb enough to think that Wisconsin weather isn't going to give us a bit more snow yet this spring, but there is always hope
Meanwhile, we have our COOL new water boots out. I showed these off a few posts ago, well my cool green dot ones anyway. About 8 hours after those pictures of me in my boots in the water, we had about 6 more inches of snow and the water froze.
yeah, that's Wisconsin weather. Miss V got the cool black ones with the multicolored dots. I think there is a quilt in this somewhere............

Pretty soon I will be banned from my sewing room for about 6 weeks. I'm having my right rotator cuff fixed. sigh. But to tide me over, I stopped at the library book sale and got all these great books for less than $7.00! And since there is a quilt shop next to the library........... and since that quilt shop has a clearance rack................. well, look what was there!!! The black has actually already been used for a backing. The coffee just had to come home with me because well, I love coffee! So for a few weeks I can go through my quilt books and magazines and dream up new UFO's.

I can't even find the words to tell you how much I love those boots! Totally, totally cool! Mare, you are definately a fashionista. You may try to hide it, but it shines through.
