Ever have a project that nags at you? It keeps you from working on other stuff because you don't want to abandon it, and have another UFO/WIP or whatever you want to call it? Here's mine!
"Retro Bag". Made completely from fabrics on hand, primarily vintage ones discussed in this post. (I hand dyed the orange and red tidbits last summer.) Finished today. I made up the pattern as I went along.
Though not quite as flat as I wish they were, I like the prairie points, and I think the handles class it up a little.
In other news, yesterday we made our annual pilgrimage to Brookside Gardens for their Wings of Fancy exhibit. I've taken the boys every year for about 5? Maybe 6 years. Here's one of the butterflies, who was the best poser of the bunch.
Finally, here are some turtles we found sunning themselves over towards the Japanese style pavilion.
