Slow Sunday

I spent last night and today making a new bag.    This one is made with recycled denim.    I did the quilting on my Singer 66 red eye treadle.

I used gold thread to match the stitching in the jeans.   An I used the waist band from the jeans to finish the top of the bag.

I spent a good portion of Saturday weeding and pruning in the garden.  It is amazing how quickly the weeds grow!    And the shrubs and roses as well.  I had good intentions of doing a lot more gardening today but after I get started on the bag I couldn’t stop and it was 9 pm before I knew it.    If anyone is interested it can be purchased here

Teddy Says HI!
Happy Quilting

    That bag is stunning. I am guessing it sold very quickly.

    Your garden is amazing. It seems such a short time ago that you began work on it. What a wonderful transformation.
