Need a pass please

Hello!  :)

Well of course I procrastinated on the bag this month (nothing new there). I planned on getting it done today and tomorrow (I'm in the US so I still have a little more time) but it's not going to happen. My boyfriend's father has terminal cancer and has taken a turn for the worse today. I spent a lot of time with him today and will be there again tomorrow so there will be now sewing time for me. Oh well life happens and that's what the pass is for. It's my own fault for procrastinating. I did manage to get the stitching done last night so I can show you something.


I will definitely still be making the bag as it's too cute not to. Please put my one and only "pass" down for me this month Chooky. I've really enjoyed seeing everyone's bags. Thanks so much for sharing them!  :)

Until next time . . .

What a tough time - looking forward to seeing the bag when its done - looks like it will be fun with those hearts. Sending you a hug.

You're right - life can get in the way with our sewing, but people come first. How the next few days are not too stressful. Always hard to cope with. The SAL girls will all be here when you need us. Take care.
