Summer Wind


It's starting to feel a lot like summer around here...and now I have a new summer bag!


I LOVE this bag! It's one of those times when the picture in your head matches the end product exactly. I could not be happier with how this turned out, and I'm thinking about making a couple more and making it into a pattern.


I used 1 charm pack, 1 fat quarter (binding and handles), and 1/2 yd. (lining) and batting remnants to make it. Happy, happy me!

The daisies are starting to bloom as you can see above. Daisies and hydrangeas are two of my favorite flowers and they are both blooming right now. We've really enjoyed our garden this year. We've already had a crop of lettuce, and now we're getting zucchini and beans. Tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots are on the way!

Happy Memorial Day to everyone, and especially to those who have lost service members. We owe a great debt of gratitude and remembrance to those who gave their lives for this wonderful country.

You chose great prints for your bag, love it! I'd sure be interested in it if you decided to sell these bags.

Oh, I'd love the pattern! I'm just learning to sew, and love to find new things to challenge me. That bag is just fabulous!

Wow! Thanks for all the praise! I'm not getting my comments from Blogger, so I was totally surprised to check it today and find all of you! I really need to fix that.

I guess I'd better get to work on a pattern! I love the bag even more than the day I finished it...a good sign of a successful design!
