Another Bag, A Visit to TOPS

Well this bag didn't last long! I finished it before I went to my meeting, and my niece snatched it up when I got home! So I had it the total of one hour! Don't blame her though since it matches a black and white dress she has perfectly. I have lots more fabric, and found the cutest fabric at Joanne's to make another one.
The TOPS meeting was a disappointment since it was more of a social club than anything else. All the things that motivate, and make this organization work have been removed by vote from it's members. There are a couple more in town that I'll try while finding a meeting place to open my own. While talking to the area captain after the meeting, who runs a chapter the way it's supposed to be, the members lagging behind acted like I was going to rock their boat, which is not my intent. So upward and onward! I know the interim chapter is out there! Thanks again everyone! You Rock!!

The good thing is that you know what a good place TOPS can be, and I am sure if you don't find a meeting place already suited to you, it will be no problem at all starting your own. You go girl!!

Maybe we should start calling you The Bag Lady - maybe that's your bag!! I'm proud of you for producing things like that, it's such a joy to create.

P. S. Could you please email me, Laurie, my computer crashed last week and I lost my addresses. Thanks

love the bag!!
Stay busy that does help!!
Oh no sounds like they maybe should not be a true TOPS. The one near me is held in a local county park facility ...checked on it once but did not attend.
Just too much else going on health wise right now.
Good luck with yours!!
