Needless to say that I have had a lot of projects that needed to be done asap.

My son dropped his son (my adorable grandson) off for three days last week.

I just sighed and thought....oh well...back burner for a while on the asap items.

Did I regret it....NO

Did I have fun....YES

Would I drop everything again....
in a stinking heart beat!!!!!

Then this week a little friend needed someone to watch her infant baby girl while she worked or she would have to call fun fun.....

In between all of that I made a few bags.

these bags are by ithinksew

I did a few things differently but overall enjoyed the pattern.

I actually got a free day today, a free day for me is.....there is nothing I am expected to do today.
So I finished my Island Batik Blog Hop project....

Ohhhh Cute! The bags are nice too. Little ones have so much energy. And I think some of it rubs off on us old folks when we look after them.

I'm sorry if I'm being rude, but I have to speak from my heart. If you share a post of your beautiful grandson, with such a heartwarming smile, it really doesn't matter if you share any form of #CreativeGoodness. My heart is lost at the picture of your grandson. Two cute. Did you say three days? Lucky you. I'd drop everything for such a cutie.

How could you say no to that cute little face?

I had to giggle at the way you slipped in a few bags here, and the island batik project there while taking care of little ones! I have my three grandkids right now and barely found time to check my blog. Of course, 3 at once is a bigger challenge!
Have fun with your free time. ☺️

Your bags look great. They look like a really nice size too.
