Another one you can't have:)

Bought these fabrics from my friend, Jona and even though they're from different lines, not supposed to go together, I had to put them together for some reason. Maybe because they're my two favorite colors, brown and green. Anyhow, I know the end result is a little too funky for many of you but I really like the bag.

The flower pin is from my grandma. She was really into gawdy costume jewelry and I thought this brown flower was the perfect accent for this bag.

On a separate note...sergers...why do they have to be such a pain in the ass? For those who don't know what a serger is, it's the fancy schmancy machine that does the nicely trimmed edge on clothing with like 5 hundred different overlocking threads...ok, it's only 4 threads, but it feels like more.

Anyway, coordinating 4 different tension settings is really beyond my patience. I finally got fed up and had a two hour therapy session with my serger last night. We exchanged some harsh words, there may have been some physical contact. I was the bigger person though, walked away, took a shower, came back feeling better and worked things out.

I swear though, I got all of the tension set perfectly last night, everything looked great and I can guarantee that when I go to use it today, it will be all funked up even though I didn't change anything.

Ok, I'll stop complaining now. At least until my next post.
