I ‘could’ write a post about all the disasters I’ve had lately and show you pics of all the grey hair I have sprouting from my head like new grass growth in spring…BUT….for today, I decided something more inspirational was in order! So instead of grey hair I am going to share with you some photos I’ve received from Patty and Phyllis.

Patty has made a gorgeous Olivia bag in deep rose and gold fabrics….Check this out:

Don’t you think it is just divine? Patty has a Bonanza store where you can find more of Patty’s fabulous work and also buy this Olivia if you don’t wish to make one for yourself!

And ….no…..I am still not going to show you my grey hair….rather instead I would like to show you how Phyllis has customised the Genevieve messenger bag for her daughter and Son in law to add to their Pitbull Hydraulics new line of Handbags. Phyllis has added quilting and the Pitbull Hydraulics logo and I think it looks fabulous! Take a look:

Just goes to show what you can do with a little imagination! To find out more, please stop by Phyllis’s blog and to see more of the Pitbull Hydraulics handbag line, click here!

I think both of these ladies have done a great job, don’t you agree?

Do you have grey hair? Perhaps you know a secret of how to cure the problem without having to constantly reach for the hair dye? LOLLL

Happy sewing!
