I met some friends this morning for a rousing game of pickleball. One of my friends had recently started playing and invited two of us out to give it a try and it was a blast!
Here’s a quick video about pickleball.
We had so much fun we signed up for a free introduction to pickleball seminar! And I have to admit that I’m feeling it tonight! I think I’ll sleep well.
I didn’t get much done today. It was such a gorgeous day that I really just wanted to enjoy as much of it as I could. So I took the boys for a nice long 4.5 mile walk before dinner and it was glorious! We’ve got a few days of rain on the way so it was nice to have a sunny Sunday.
I did hit my sewing room this evening to finish up the orange and blue bag I’ve been working on. All I had to do was sew the sides of the lining together and then sew it into the bag and do all the finishing. It probably only took an hour or so, but it’s done.
I posted a photo of this unfinished bag with the lining on Facebook yesterday and sold it before it was even done. I’ve got two other people that want to buy essentially the same bag but I’m not inclined to make very many multiples of the same design. I will probably make another one of these in the future but I have other things I want to do now.
Here’s some detail photos.
OMG! That lining is so good! I just love it!
Here’s some close ups that just make me happy.
On our walk tonight I saw some really gorgeous blooms. This first one is a rhododendron. It was the prettiest pale pink color. The photo doesn’t do it justice.
And this yellow tulip was spectacular! It was huge and the most gorgeous color.
Around 8:00 I went out and was playing with the boys and took a spin around the yard and caught the aroma of my lilac bush and it was so amazing! I had to cut some blooms and bring them into the house.
And now my entire house smells like lilacs!
