Blues

I got that itch again. The one where I just have to sit and lose myself in thought while I stitch on buttons- little works of art. (inside out- large pocket)

(and another on the other side; plus a small pocket running along the bottom of the first)


The back- nice blue.

(although the lighting on these photos is a bit harsh. The top and bottom pictures are a better rendition of the way the bag looks)
The under flap pocket pulls the greens and blues together perfectly.




width of base: 7.5"

height of bag: 10"

Materials: high end upholstery samples, two neckties, a floral piece from Lettuce, two cloth napkins from Jamaica, a bit of quilting fabric, and a special sampling of buttons from lots of people.

Bids begin at $25- cdn. The auction will conclude at 9:30 pm, this evening, November 16, 2009.

Wow - do you really make a bag every day? You are indeed superwoman. I only have 1 kid, she is 16, so no nose-wiping or wiping anything (except floors etc.), but I only sew for mending.

Another stunning bag.

$35

I'm glad to hear you are all enjoying the blue tree. I quite enjoyed making it as well.

I posted at 9:17 last night, I guess we are in different time zones???

for instance I just posted the earlier post and its 8:36pm and its showing 11:36.

What time zone are you in Joyce?

joyce said...

I am in central standard time- the prairies. So if you are in Victoria, you are in pacific standard time, which is two hours different than we are. (or 3? depending on daylight savings?) now I'll likely reveal my ignorance.

I think Lettuce is onto something good- she has a time converter in her sidebar. Must work on that.
