Also on the weekend Bill and I went on a little adventure through the woods to the river and along the way I spotted this lovely patch of ferns , have I told you I love ferns , well I do :-) Our little adventure eventually brough us here to the river , it was worth the trek to see this .
and from the other angle
It was a lovely walk , a little rough in sections but I brought along a walking stick . Oh and at one point a deer cleared the path right in front of me , it must have been a buck as it gave quite a snort .
I am not sure what these little blooms are but they were very tiny and rather cute.
Then there is this trout pond , it is on the property that we took the walk through , I also love ponds especially when they are surrounded by cattails .
Since I last posted I have done a little sewing and made not one but two bags , would you like to see them ?
Using some of the same fabrics as the last bag and just sewing until I had enough to make the right size for a bag this is the result. I really love this one and I picked up that vintage tiny runner at the thrift store when looking for hankies , perfect for this bag ! Here is a closer look .
When you get me started on bags I don't know when to stop and going through my stash I came across this fabric that I knew I would just have to do something with now. I had borrowed a pattern from the guild library and it is called Coast to Coast Handbag by Vanilla House .
I had the handles on hand and they were the right shade for this fabric . I used a batik for the lining in the same shade of blue in the fabric , I love it.
I know this is getting a little picture heavy but I also want to share two postcards I made yesterday . I signed up for an exchange that requires you to use lime green and purple , I couldn't resist . My first attempt was this flower but I felt the purple looked more like blue .
but this one fit the theme well I thought, what do you think?
Fun to make but then I think I am hooked on postcards , what do you think?
Thanks for stopping by today and hope your day is a great one.
