I’m Seeing Orange… And I Like It!

I had to run to the post office to drop a bag in the mail this evening after our walk. So that meant that my time in my sewing room was limited before I was too tuckered to avoid mistakes.

I managed to get the lining, pockets and zipper placket basically done. All I have to do is sew the side and bottom seams and finish the gussets and I can sew it into the bag.

Isn’t that orange fabric gorgeous?!?!?!? I wasn’t a huge fan of this Kaffe Fassett design called Damask Flower when it first came out, but I just LOVE it now! That is the most wonderful color of orange! I bought a few yards of it in green with the plan to use it as a background for a mostly yellow KFC quilt. But I have never decided on a pattern.

Here’s a view of that orange with the bag. I just love it!

And this little peek of blue is so good! The little orange pieces in that blue fabric make this all so glorious!

Bender continues to believe that sewing is boring. He can’t manage to stay awake for it. At least he wasn’t under my feet.

I had my dog agility class with Rico last night. I got there a little early and it was nice out so I let the boys have a nice run in her field.

That is a field growing grass seed. There is more grass seed grown in the Willamette Valley in Oregon than any other place on earth. There’s a fact for you.

Handsome kid!

I have a plumber coming tomorrow. It’s a toilet-palooza at my house! He will be fixing the toilet in my utility room, re-seating the toilet in my hall bath, and installing a new toilet in my bathroom. I’m so excited!!!

I’ll be sure to share photos of all this toilet excitement!

    1. when you drive through the Willamette valley you see a lot of gorgeous farm country. Lots and lots of grass seed fields, filbert (Hazle nuts) groves, and recently more and more hemp fields.


  2. Beautiful green grass for Rico and Bender to enjoy💕
    That blue and orange bag is looking exquisite!!! You could make the plumber a tool bag 😄
