As promised, here are some pictures of my new weekender bag that I finished just in time to take on my trip.

I used the county fair line by Denyse Schmidt, and just love the colors and patterns. I wish I had some helpful tips to give about making the bag. Unfortunately all I can say is that I'll never make another one... ever.... for as long as I live. But I wish the rest of you the best of luck when you attempt to make one!

I have a new photo program so I'm playing around with the photo editing. I'm not sure what I think about them yet, I need more practice... that's for sure. (Isn't she the cutest dog?)

And finally whats a zipper without a zipper pull? I got this one from the shop because it was just destined to belong to my weekender.

Nothing Clever in This Post

But I do have some awesome photos to show off!

I took a trip last weekend to visit my good friend Jenny who is lucky enough to be attending the university in Edinburgh, Scotland. I had the most amazing time and have to show off some of the amazing things I saw.

First up are the ruins of St Anthony's Chapel. That's all I know about it, but it sure was a pretty place for our picnic!

Next is the beautiful castle. Being cheap/broke college students we opted not to go inside for the full tour, but it was still fun to see!

And here's a street view of the castle...

And the super cool telephone booths up against the castle... I love them!

Next is just an the amazing view of the city while watching the sun go down (and freezing our butts off...)

And finally just a necessary snapshot of the two of us. (I made Jenny take the picture because I only ever manage to get one person in the photos with my skill.)

I'll be back soon to show the cute bag I finished in time to take on the trip.
