A Finished Project and a Win!

How is everyone enjoying their weekend?  I am taking a coffee break from work that needs to be done around here, at our house in the woods, to show you the one project that I completed this weekend.  I bought the fabric for this bag about a month ago and cut it out at least two weeks ago, finally I finished it this week.
I find it is hard to pick just the right spot to take pictures of a bag to really show how it turned out.  I started down in my work room and decided that there was just too much busyness behind it anywhere I hung it.

This is the pattern I used for the bag.
Lining
Was not thinking how the directional fabric would turn out on the pocket.  Upside down Scotties.  Decided it was not a big enough deal to make another pocket, who sees it besides me and all of you? 

I am doing the happy dance today because I won a give-away over at Cozy Little House for some fabric at Fashionable Fabrics.  Twenty Five dollars for fabric!!!  Cannot wait to shop and thank you so very much Brenda at Cozy Little House.  You should all go visit Brenda because she has a wonderful blog with so many beautiful garden pictures, home pictures and her new venture of Cozy Little Shops. 

Need to get back to work, there is painting, vacuuming, laundry and other miscellaneous things on my list.  Have a great Saturday and I'll see in the morning for Sunday Praise!  Blessings!
