What a week! The weather here has been a roller coaster ride. We started out with seasonal temperatures–very comfortable mid 70’s–before tropical moisture rolled in complete with lightning and thunder and drizzle/light rain for two days. (We don’t often get any moisture here this time of year so we were glad to have it.) The warm storm rolled out and left us with slightly lower than usual temps for a day or so before getting back to normal. And then, spiking to incredibly high temperatures yesterday and for the next several days. And by high, I mean it is likely to get to 100 degrees here today. You can imagine how pleasant it has been to be the human barometer during all of this. I haven’t done nearly as much as I would like. But…I did finish the Kaffe project and even managed pictures!After a great deal of internal debate, I settled on a large floppy cross body bag. I had the perfect zipper in my stash. Time and circumstances haven’t allowed me to make you a project sheet, but it’s on my To Do list. It’s really, really simple to make. And incredibly easy to customize.You need one zipper and two D rings. That’s it. No special bag hardware. No magnetic snaps.
This bag is only lightly quilted which results in a floppier bag, making it perfect for folding up and taking with you as an “extra” bag on trips. If it were heavily quilted, the bag would be less floppy and have more structure. Just another way to customize.
The week promises to be full to bursting with house and yard projects (Mr. P has the week off) and a niece getting married on Saturday (some out of town family will be arriving at the end of the week for that). Oh yes, it’s also my birthday this week. How could I forget that? (Easily, it turns out.)
This pattern is unlikely to be written this week. But I think October is going to be a bit quieter. Can you wait til then?
