Bag Making is FUN!
September 15th, 2023
 a bi-monthly publication of StudioKat Designs
 Issue #254
Hello & Welcome!
So... now that school has started once again, its time to get back to the old routine which means LOTS more time for... SEWING ... of course!  Wink And speaking of that I've been very busy getting started on my next new pattern and if you'd like a sneek preview into my thinking right now, just click HERE! (please keep in mind that its VERY early in the process right now!)

Beyond that, I'm glad I can say that I'm in a way better headspace than I was last month at this time! There's been a new medication introduced, (not for me), and I'm hopeful that things are starting to head in the right direction (fingers crossed). 
But... enough of that. I've got some fun goodies in store for you in this month's issue! Embarassed 
So let's get started! 
What Was I Writing About Back Then?
I have such a large archive of writing on our website and sometimes I like to go back and see what I was writing about around this time during year's past. And guess what? Turns out, rereading these posts brought back some really GREAT memories for me. I hope you enjoy them too! 

1 Year Ago: 9/14/22- Three Essential Mentors

5 Years Ago: 9/28/18- Changing it Up for Va Beach

Rest in Peace- Jimmy Buffet

Rest in Peace Jimmy Buffet! 
Jimmy passed away peacefully on 9/1/23 surrounded by his family, friends, music and dogs. He lived his life like a song till his very last breath and will be missed by many (including me)!
