I have a few shows coming up so I have been in the studio sewing up a storm! Today I got a chance to go have lunch with a friend before her little bundle of joy shows up in a few weeks. Afterwards I dropped into two thrift shops on the way home.
Vera Bradley Metropolitan Laptop bag $24.99
This Bag is awesome. Normally I would put my laptop in my purse and put all cords in a pouch like these. Now I can put it all one together. This gave me a great idea for designing a laptop bag. It has a gajillion pockets and such. It even has the opening to slide it on the handle of your luggate…score!
All this for @24.99…I will take it.
Marc Jacobs Laptop Sleeve $3.99
Brand new ….with the original OFF 5th Tags
Ok hear me out….I don’t like this style of handbag at all….well why did you buy it. For this….
How killer is this hardware?????? Is over 3 inches! Yasss, it will be perfect on the Swoon Amber I am working on! Well that was it. Been thrifting lately! let me know what you scored! Happy New Year!

On our Getaway we spent the second half in Dubuque, IA
We stayed at the RedStone Inn Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights. What a charming B&B, victorian charming and quaint. This was the office season so we had it all to ourself. The owner was wonderful, accommodating, great conversationalist and a pleasure all around.
Although Dubuque may not be everyone’s cup of tea we found much to do! The Mississippi River Boat Museum and Aquarium, 3 thrift stores, a quilt shop and a local yarn store! The yarn store, Yarn Soup was refreshing.
It was the peferct size for Dubuque and carried a few yarns I had not heard of…so I had to bring it home:). Introducing Vice on the Paradigm Base..I am seeing a crochet shawl in my future.
I also picked us some two Skeins of Cascade Paints @45% off as I wanted to make something in fall like colors.
I then grabbed to chocolate Alpaca blends
Small bottle of Euclan-I have only used soak and I am not very impressed. The Jasmine smells sooooo good!
Locking stitch marks
Gauage O knit.
I am a sucker for tools!
By the time we left the yarn shop the quilt store was closed…we said to each other…Next time for sure!
