Okay, I really love this bag. Love it so much that I sort of agonized whether to post it on the Friday of a long weekend in summer....
But I can't be greedy about philanthropy, now can I?
This is especially true after spending the weekend with my bird loving friend on her incredible country property complete with a lush meadow and many bird sounds. (she knows the names of them. Me? Not so much)
The pockets are my fave- camo. I added a tie-up feature this time, just to give it some closure.
The birds originally decorated a kitchen dish towel. I claimed the towel at the thrift shop, and I'm quite confident that this will be its debut in usefulness. I think it has always been spared the pedestrian lifestyle of plate wiping.
See that shoulder strap? Yup, it says "Blue Ribbon Tea"; and it is a tea towel as well. It is dressed up with some of that good old blue chenille. mmmmmmmm....
The edging is pieced blue and red, actually a small boy's shirt that I could not leave at the thrift shop. I don't have a small boy any more, but I saw that shirt a few times over at the local thrift 'n gift and finally accepted that it belonged with me; one way or another. I incorporated the buttons on one of the cell phone pockets so that it actually buttons closed.
That red fringe really brings out the card of that cardinal. And the belly on that robin.
It's just a really great bag.
As usual, this auction will conclude at 6 pm on August 1, 2008.
I'm sure you won't all be away. Actually, I will be away from the computer at that time, so be civil. My daughter is finished camp tomorrow evening, and the original plan was for her to take a three hour trip home on the greyhound, but in light of recent events, her dad and I will be taking the trek ourselves to go pick her up. Somehow, time and money just don't matter all that much when I think of seeing my precious daughter intact, happy, and healthy.
So, again.... The auction will conclude at 6 pm, blogger time. If I don't respond at that time, just use your noggin to see whose name shows up at or before 6; with the highest numerical value, and then be patient. I will return.
