I’ve been feeling a little like my creative juices are running low. I’ve even been thinking this might be a good time to take my sewing machine in for servicing. Then, by the time I get it back I’ll be itching to get going again on new projects.
But tonight I had a little inspiration and whipped up this panel for a Frankenbag.
I’ve been thinking for a few weeks about pulling out the blue sunburst fabric and using it in a bag. So last night I did just that and pulled some fabrics from my stash to go with it.
After having these on my cutting table for a day, I put some of them back in the drawer, then cut some strips and started putting it all together. And I do like the way the panel came together. I’ll make the second one tomorrow night.
Got some photos of a really cool bag from Amy Bell Buehler. And I just LOVE this bag! That little fish is so fantastic. And I love the earthy colors, fun crumb piecing, and those wonderful pops of turquoise here and there. This is just such a winner! Nice job Amy!
I’m having a bit of a hard time easing back into work after my vacation. I’m thinking I’m going to schedule another week off in July. I still have over four weeks of vacation available and am still feeling like I need some time off.
It was a hot one today. It got up to well over 90 degrees. So I took our mid day walk at around 11:30 this morning before it got too hot. We had to stop midway and rest, mostly because I was really hungry! These boys did not understand what this sitting thing was all about.
For our evening walk, we waited until 8 pm to get out and it was still 90 degrees! But it didn’t feel as hot because the sun was down and there was a light breeze. We still had to take a pass through the park so the boys could wet their whistles.
Tomorrow will be hot again and then the weather will get back into the mid 60s and cloudy for a few days. That will be a welcome change. It’s too early to be so hot.
