I love yoga. I have been going to class now for a few years and I'm always trying to get Brian to go with me. He has a lot of shoulder pain and I'm convinced that it would help. When I started I couldn't raise my left arm all the way due to a skiing injury. Now I have no problem at all. In fact - we did side crow in class last night. Very awsome. FINALLY - last week Brian came to class and sure enough - he admitted the next day he felt better. Grabbing the moment, I bought him a new charcoal (manly colored) Nike yoga mat and then happily made him this Yoga bag. I've made lots of these for "girls". and used faux leather which looks really good. But for this one I used black corduroy. I put a good size pocket on the outside to hold his car key and gym pass - even a water bottle will fit. The bag is roomy enough for a strap or towel to fit in too. The mat came with a string around it so I just used that. It looks really good and makes life easier - even for the muscle man. Not bad for only $2.50.

No - I Don't Just Sew
I love to create. I usually come up with an idea of something I want to do and then after dreaming about it (literally) I'm ready to draw the plans, make the pattern or solve the problem. Whether I am designing a new home, remodeling a kitchen, creating real estate marketing, decorating a tablescape, or making a birthday cake - I always try to strive for "my" level of perfection by doing the very best I can. My reward is seeing others find joy in the things I create.
Years ago my grandma Dover, a successful business woman, gave me the best advice ever. She said, “if you really want to be good at something… just find someone else who is – and then learn from them.” Yes, it’s just that easy.
