Holy cow! Am I glad that work week is over! Come on, weekend!
I had to work until after 8 pm tonight to get my annual budget ready to be submitted. Phew! What a ton of work.
Relaxed with a little time in the sewing room and finished up this Aboriginal fabric Frankenbag. And I just LOVE it!
I’m pretty sure this bag will be living with me. I can just picture myself carrying this through an airport some day.
I love that panel of thin strips on the right side of this bag too. I’m going to doing a little more of that in future bags.
I also finished up the body of this second border collie bag. The pieced panels were already made. Tonight I made the quilt sandwiches, quilted the two panels, made the handles and assembled the outside of the bag. So all I have to do now is make the lining and sew it in.
I’m thinking I might use that bold black and white cow print for the lining. I just love that fabric! I bought about nine yards of it several years ago at a ridiculously low price. Maybe I’m the only one in the US who likes this cow print!
Today is Bender’s eighth birthday! I can’t believe he’s eight already.
This photo was taken by my friend Heather when Bender was about a year old. Heather is an amazing photographer. She loves to take photos of dogs and puppies. She took photos of Bender every week from the time I brought him home at eight weeks old until he hit the six month mark. There are a LOT of photos of bender as a puppy.
Work kept me from baking him our traditional peanut butter, carrot and honey cake tonight. I’ll make one for him in the morning.
