I finished up the body for this blue sunburst Frankenbag after our walk this evening. And I absolutely love this bag! Definitely one of my favorites.
And the other side…
The side views are interesting too…
And now I’m going to have to wait to finish this because I’ve ordered something special for the lining. But in the mean time I’m planning my next bag…
I’ve been wanting to make a bag out of purples. I’m basing this combo on the coleus fabric at the very top. I will do some editing of these fabrics, but this is a good start. I may include a couple little starbursts here and there. There are a few that are purple and green.
I got some photos of Frankenbags from a couple more blog readers in the last few days.
Here’s one from Antoinette Todd. I really love this scrappy combo of fabrics. Its so casual and comfortable! And I do love those little pops of turquoise.
And here’s another one from Cherry Naylor. I really love that chips fabric. It’s so graphic. I also love how these fabrics are a little more primary colors. I also really like the bold vertical pieces in this bag, all broken up with the little HST block on point.
I think Cherry might be hooked!
Thanks to Cherry and Antoinette for sending me their photos!
I took a picture of the back of my hair the other night because it felt like it was getting really long. I haven’t had it cut since February 2020. That’s nearly 18 months!
I don’t remember the last time my hair was this long. And I’ve been getting really anxious to get it cut. And since I’m fully vaccinated and I have a neighbor who is a hairdresser who is also fully vaccinated, I asked her this morning if she could get me in today. She had an opening in the afternoon and this is the result.
It feels SOOOO GOOD to have it cut! And I love all the curl she was able to get out of it. She told me it will continue to get curlier as it adjusts to the cut. She cut a full three inches off of it and it’s still longer than it’s been in years. It will be interesting to see what I can do with it after I wash it.
She even trimmed my crazy eyebrows!
I’m happy to report that my strawberry plants are sort of going crazy! The biggest one is about as big around as a quarter and the pips are turning red!
I’m thinking I might actually get enough strawberries that I can eat more than one at a time!
