Gift bag

Morning all. Thanks for visiting! I have had a couple of really rough days on my quit smoking journey but I successfully made it through without giving in. Today is 75 days! It seems like everything I touched went badly. I wasted a lot of vinyl making these because I kept forgetting to mirror the images and cut them before I thought. At least with the bag I did not have to worry too much.
Then my sister-in-law (who helps with my mother-in-law) developed shingles. If you don't know what these are, it is a by product of the chicken pox that hides and lays dormant until you get older and then reappears as a painful skin rash. Mom is 87 and never had the chicken pox so she is the only one who is contagious!
I did manage to get a couple of gifts made. I used heat transfer vinyl and my Silhouette to do these. All the images are Silhouette files.

Grocery bag for a lady who is always very kind to Mom when she is grocery shopping.

An apron for my sister-in-law's birthday. She puts up with a LOT from my brother...lol

Thanks for stopping and listening to my rant! Hopefully I can catch up on your blogs today!
