I finally had enough oomph left at the end of the day tonight to do a little sewing. So I sewed the lining and finished up the corgi bag that I’m making for a friend in Utah.
I really like the way it turned out. It’s amazing to me how some quilting and a few seams makes something look like something.
Here’s the other side. Not sure which is the front and which is the back.
My friend sent enough corgi fabric to use it for the lining. I made the pocket out of one of the batiks used on the outside of the bag. I like this bag a lot more than I thought I was going to.
And you know I’m loving this little tag!
Still haven’t landed on the best way to attach these tags. I think I liked it the other way better. I’ll keep working on the best method.
I had a fantastic weekend at a sheep herding clinic down in Molalla, Oregon. It was three days of dogs and sheep and friends that I haven’t seen for months. I think I was in heaven!
We really lucked out on the weather. It was cool all weekend, but the only rain we had was on the drive home Friday. I wore my parka all weekend! I’m so glad I threw it in the car at the last minute.
Rico was such a good boy and did an amazing job at the clinic. We really pushed him to do things that were difficult and he really rose to the occasion.
Unfortunately, he wore some holes in the pads of his front feet on Saturday, so his herding training on Sunday was very limited. Basically, he had blisters on his feet. Poor guy was in so much pain. He’s such a sensitive kid.
Luckily, he’s feeling sooooo much better today! Well enough to go for our walk this evening with his feet wrapped. He was very happy to get to go along.
And look how cute his is with his little pink shoes!
Bender went along on the weekend and got some special Bender time each day. He was pretty happy to get some one-on-one attention.
He would have posed on that tree stump for an hour if I’d asked him to. He is such an expert poser.
Back to the work week now. It will be a very busy and exhausting two weeks coming up. I have vacation scheduled for the last week in May and I’m really looking forward to it!
Next up for sewing is to figure out how to get a zipper placket in a Frankenbag. I have to put action behind some ideas to see if they’re going to work.
