Man, I really need to be designing clothes. I can't wait until things really get off the ground and I able to really branch out in my creativity (not that I don't do that for myself, but I mean designing for others, as well). I think I would better at it then handbags. Funny how things work out, but will come full circle in the end.
Things finally calmed down enough for me to have a little fun. I attended Brian's Halloween party on Saturday and had a wonderful time. I am going to continue to take advantage of my down time by diving into that 'special' fabric I have been saving to sew MYSELF a bag. It is exciting to think that I will be able to carry around my very own Lylou (that isn't a second or sample). I am also getting started on those PIF bags and hope to get at least one out before the holidays.

One of the many things I brought away from being married to an Indian man was the wonderful ability to cook Indian food. After spending my Sunday morning cleaning and sewing, I was able to settle into a nice afternoon of cooking a wonderful dinner.
For those of you wanting to get your feet wet
Don't be fooled...cooking Indian food isn't as hard as you might think it is.

It is always exciting to be exploring blogs and run across a post on my bags.
Are things as grave as they appear?
At times it doesn't seem quite clear
Ice cold water runs 'neath my feet
The taste in my mouth is rotting meat
A thin coat of salt covers my hide
The water is rising like a rushing tide
I notice my hands starting to vanish
My imperfections becoming quite lavish
My comforting breath is a heavy wheeze
I develop a chill with the slightest breeze
My hopes arise with thoughts of being saved
But I am gently moved with the flow of each wave
Piece by piece my body dismantles
I notice in the distance a row of lit candles
I struggle to find my way to the light
My journey ends without a fair fight

Have you found your way through the city of the lost?
You would never suspect there would be such a cost
It is easier to give in then fight to the death
They’ll continue to batter you until your last breath
Hold in your gut and count to five
Then prepare to take that scheduled dive
The towel will be tossed into the ring
Your voice will be broken unable to sing
At least you will have your life to recall
Only memories of happiness in spite of it all
Was it worth the price that cost your heart?
You’ll never be able to make a clean start

Other news, I love having my intern around. She is sweet, smart and knows how to get the job done. She pays attention to her work and has really help me get out a quality end product. She informed me tonight that she will be staying for next semester, so that is a sigh of relief. She is also going to be hooking me up with a couple of interns this week. Hopefully they will work out as well as her.
I was wondering to myself tonight....how long has it been since I have gotten flowers?

"I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."
