There and back again...


I've been travelling again - it was nice to get out of town for a little while, and I got to see a dear friend who's moved. It was nice to catch up with her again, and we managed to catch a yoga class, which was interesting given that it was extremely hot and humid where we were. I don't think I've been that sweaty in a long long time.

I've been working on "decorating" a couple of bags for a local organization. The bags were knitted and crocheted by others, but needed a little something to help them out, so they asked me to add some embelishment to them. I used a form of japanese fabric folding, called tsumami, to make the flowers, and added some beads on to other bags. They will be sold in the fall to raise money for African AIDS victim's families.

Those are great!! I've never even heard of tsumami, but it looks really neat. Thanks for broadening my horizons again! =)

Lovely little bags! Glad to hear you had a great little trip!

Little accents sure can add to a bag. I sure hope they rake in lots of moola

Good choices for embellishing. I saw a show on tv where a woman did a rectangular piece of crochet & ironed on interfacing -- it made the bag STIFF and then she lined with coordinating fabric [and pockets] It always looks so easy on TV ... LOL
