It’s amazing how I can get to the end of the day and wonder where all the hours went. Today was one of those days.
I had a nice sleep in and a good breakfast. Then took the boys for a nice 3.5 mile walk in a light rain. It was balmy and the rain wasn’t bad. It was a perfect temp for walking.
Once we got home I realized that I was missing a sheep herding webinar I had signed up for. So I grabbed my computer, joined the zoom meeting, and headed for my sewing room to spend some time on the Frankenbag panels I started the other night.
I managed to finish up the piecing of the panels as I listened to the webinar.
That’s the two panes as I designed them. But I decided to spin them around and see how I liked it. Here’s what I ended up with for the orientation o these panels.
After finishing the panels I laid down on the sofa and watched a movie. By the time the moving ended it was time for dinner! I feel like I lost at least four hours in this span of time… never to be seen again.
I had a dinner that always takes me right back to my childhood… tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwich… and It was soooo good!
By this time my dogs were thinking they needed more activity.
Then they finally gave up…Until I asked them if they wanted to go for a walk.
So out we went for a 2 mile walk. It was really nice out. About 47 degrees in the dark, with a nice full moon illuminating a cloudy sky.
When we got home I was back in my sewing room and quilted the bag panels.
And a little more eye candy…
I managed to get the handles made and the body of the bag completed before I called it quits.
I do like the panel oriented that way.
Here’s the other side of the bag.
I like that the two sides of the bag are different.
Before I stopped for the night I tried a few options for the lining of the bag. I’m out of that jade millefiori fabric, and I didn’t want to use the black for the lining because it’s so dark. It would be hard to find what you’re looking for inside.
After a few options I landed on this zig zag design for the lining.
That pink sharks tooth is an option for the pockets, but I’m not sure I’ll use it. I might use the black fabric instead. I’ll take look and decide tomorrow.
And that was my day. It felt like a really short day.
I have a sheep herding lesson with Rico tomorrow, Then I’ll probably stop on the way home and let the boys run in the big field at Washington State University.
I’m actually going to have to work a full five days next week. it’s been so long since I’ve done that. Then we’ll have another long weekend.
