I was a little disappointed that there was no sunshine at all today to help me celebrate the arrival of Daylight Saving Time. But it was really nice to be wrapping up our evening walk at 7 pm in daylight. It’s so nice to have the luxury!
It rained off and on all day today but we did manage to get our two walks in. This is pretty typical spring weather in Portland. Cloudy for days and days with anything from mist to drizzle, downpour to showers, and everything in between.
I had a sheep herding webinar at noon today. It was supposed to be an hour or 1.5 hours long, but it went on for 2.5 hours! I took my computer into my sewing room and worked on a new Frankenbag while I listened.
And then after dinner and after our evening walk I was able to get it all finished up. I’ve been wanting to combine some of my Australian Aboriginal fabrics with Brandon Mably’s octopus and I love how it turned out.
All the colors in the octopus fabric are in the Aboriginal fabrics. I feel like this bag reads blue and I love that. But there are so many more colors than just blue!
Here’s the other side of the bag.
And that side is even more blue! Gah! Those fabrics are so gorgeous!
Here’s some detail photos, because I love the details!
And I want to share these close up photos of the quilting because they show the colors in these fabrics so well!
Good grief! Look at those colors! And more…
I have three completed Frankenbags made from Aboriginal fabrics sitting on my cutting table tonight. I just love how they look together.
These fabrics are like KFC fabrics in that they all play together so well! I don’t think I’ve ever put together a bad combination.
And look… my cute little tags!!!
Another work week on the way. I’m hoping for something good to happen this week. I could use it!
