I stepped away from my desk right at 5:00 today after a jam packed day. I grabbed a quick dinner of some home made soup I took out of my freezer yesterday. We were out for our walk by 6:30 and it was a gorgeous evening.
I can’t tell you how much I love being able to do our entire evening walk in daylight. I just love watching more and more evening light appear this time of year.
When I got home I hunkered down in my sewing room and put that second purple and green panel together. And I managed to get both panels sandwiched and quilted.
Here’s a look at both panels quilted and ready to assemble.
Definitely a different feel from the blue and orange bag. But I really like this one too.
I decided to take just a few minutes and get the bag constructed. It only takes me about 15 minutes to make the handles and get the outer bag sewn together.
It seems silly to not just finish it up before I wrap it up for the night.
Here’s the other side of the bag.
And just because I love all the detail…
These boys thought that extra few minutes to finish that outer bag was too much to ask of them.
Rico looks eight feet tall in that photo!
Oh, and I heard from Trudy tonight and asked her how that tiny lamb is doing. She told me that she found a pet home for her and she’s settling in with her new friend… a Shetland sheep. And the cutest thing… they named her Petal! How sweet is that?
She’s still very tiny. But I just love her new jacket! I’m so happy she is doing well that she’s ready to go to her new home!
