“Before they call, I will answer”; bag; yardage to date


I have been working on this Babylock “Love of sewing” Challenge,  Nancy Zieman bag most of the week.   Jen, who was to get the bag, was coming over at noon.   I needed grosgrain ribbon to complete the handles and had none.   I checked to see what time JoAnn’s opened this morning and found that would be 10 AM    It was snowing and I don’t drive in snow.   What do I do?   Then the thought came to me to check my mother’s leftover trims box.   In it was exactly the amount of the color I needed with not so much as an extra 1/2″ of ribbon.   Amazing God!    So the bag was finished with the miracle ribbon and done just before she arrived.  IMG_0072zIt’s fun when Jen, Bob and the boys come over to play games.    This is Rummy and involves colors and number sequences.
