After a great day (more on this later), I felt good enough to hit my sewing room tonight and finish the yellow and blue Frankenbag I’ve been working on. I had to completely cut and construct the lining and pockets and then sew the lining to the bag body and do all the finishing. Here’s the result.
Here’s the other side.
It seems like forever since I’ve done any sewing. It’s amazing what being busy and sick will do to your sewing time!
Here’s some more detail. I just love this lining fabric!
More eye candy…
You might notice that I added a beaded zipper pull to this bag on the placket zipper and pocket zipper.
I don’t know why it took me so long to remember to add a zipper pull. I’ve been adding them to zipper pouches for some time. Several years ago I bought a bunch of spools of different colors of faux leather and a bag of wooden beads. They are so quick and easy to make and make finding the zipper pull so much easier.
I even pulled a finished bag out of my closet and added zipper pulls.
It rained this morning, but the afternoon brought better weather so I loaded the dogs in the car and headed out for a different friend’s place to run Bender and Rico in her field. We had a wonderful time. These boys do love to get out and run!
OMG! I just love it here this time of year! Look how gorgeous it is!!!
I took a few pictures…
After our field run I decided to take some back roads on the way home. We wandered around the Balk Peak area until the road we were on turned into a dirt road and eventually met up with a street I’m familiar with.
Then I had to pull over and take in the amazing view. It as gorgeous but windy.
It was just a striking day with amazing and dramatic skies.
Good grief. Look at that!
This made me feel so good! Nothing like going from being stuck in the house to being outdoors in such a vast space.
When I got home I threw some spaghetti sauce on the stove. I had planned to make it for my brothers while they were here and needed to get it cooked since I had thawed some hamburger and sausage.
It made a really nice dinner, especially since I’ve been craving pasta. I have enough left over for a few dinners and got a couple containers in my freezer for later.
