Sitting in my backyard watching all the chipmunks racing around…
Yes they dug up one of my planter….gurrr….
but then they also eat all the seedlings “Airplanes” as I call them falling from the Maple Trees.
So they kind of help me too.
This is an Ice Wonderland right here in Sutton, Ontario….
unbelievable how there is sooooo much ice on the beach! This is not to far from us about 30 minutes driving…people where still on the ice doing Ice-Fishing…
I guess they know what they are doing….felt a little more comfortable staying on land at this time of year.
Yehhh I finished this bag ….after 3 days of sewing….I did it!!!
The pattern is at it original way a Sewing Bag…
I like it, but since I would never use the ironing pad on it. I decided to alter this up…
followed the pattern (except for iron pad) ….till I came to outer panels.
I tell You I am glad I have a workhorse fo a sewing machine, Janome MC6500 . I used faux Suede and the interfacing was heavy too. Would go lighter next time in my choice of Interfacing or Stabilizer.
Then I was not sure where I had gone wrong? Somehow I ended up with two the same with outer fabric 1 facing out and second 1 facing in….NOOOOO!!! Why is that I ask?
Off to my modifications working a side panel like in the “Sew Together Bag”. Only to realize that now the bag front and back are falling way to much open.
OK, what next was my question? Lets turn bag inside out and make more pockets…LOL
Perfect !!! FINISHED HUwww…
So I am looking forward to seeing the once worked up at the store…It is the first bag I have put together that has lots of zippers, pockets and folder slots.
I think this will be a great bag to go travel with. Perfect for Passports, Travel documents and yes even my DSL Camera should fit in to my modified bag…
Happy with the end result….yes not perfect with all the exact precise measures….I like it and I managed to sew it up on my own (Embroidery section for Front pocket is a sample that was going into the garbage!)
Smiles and I get to make another one too….;-)))))
After we had a nice view days doing things around the house over the Labour Day Weekend…part of hurricane Harvey must have made its way up to us …with rain and Thunder. So the grounds are all wet this Tuesday Morning. A perfect day to doing some more cleaning I thought and getting ready for the colder season again.
So as I am waiting for the water to drain from Hot Tub ….I noticed a cluster of beautiful Mushrooms had grown on our front walk way…so delicate and pretty.
See how only 20 minutes of lighting makes a difference in the picture ….and one hour later they are all drying up and shriveled up looking…..I guess by noon they are gone again…
So two hours have past since I started this post ….and you should see how black the sky is right now…..lol I am getting soaked by rain and hail….
So you said it is raining again…well yes we have had a fair share of rain this spring and yes summer…Thunderstorms are usually here too.
So the one good thing is the grass …well the weeds are growing like mad.
I always have had a interrest in taking water droplet picture in the hope one day I can see the reflection of me in them …no luck so far. Or I just have not mastered the technic of this yet. I am hopeful one day I get it right.
But here I think these pictures are not to bad….really love the spiderweb and the funny end bloom of the Clematis flower.
Also genug mit dem Regenwetter … gut ist es schon doch haben in diesem Frühjahr einen fairen Anteil an Regen gehabt und ja immer noch obwohl es Sommer ist! Gewitter kommen halt auch dazu. Lach das Gras … sowie die Unkräuter wachsen wie wild.
Ich habe immer ein Interesse an Wassertropf und bin in der Hoffnung eines Tages die Reflexion von mir in eine Regentropfe zu sehen. … kein Glück so weit. Oder ich habe die Technik noch nicht beherrscht.
Diese Bilder sind aber recht gut … das Spinnennetz und die ende Blüte der Clematis Blume gefallen mir besonders gut.
Spending some time together with my hubby…yehhhh just him and I in the beautiful Island of Antigua. I tell You I was in paradise for sure.
Sooo miss it now…:-)))
The ocean turquoise blue and so clear and warm. The resort “St.James Club and Villas” truly a fantastic place.
Let me tell you the people just sooooo happy all the time…but how could you not living in the sunshine all the time and having the sound of the evening crickets chirp you to sleep. Once the crickets stop you know it is time to get up!!!….and the birds start to sing….as you hear the surf of the ocean hit the shore and the palm leaves swing in the wind…So Peaceful and relaxing.
We where able to go onto two snorkeling trips. One with a catamaran along the Caribbean side of the Ocean that we booked and one right from our resort. Guess what, that trip we won at Monday nights mangers party …luck us the ocean was calm on the second last day of our holidays.
Conch shells where lots to be found…smiles without the conch in it and to get the pink colour one had to find the one that was still housing the conch in it…and hubby dove down to the ocean floor several times to find some for us….We had seen a stingray and several schools of beautiful fishes even two big barracuda where close to us too…..
I think the pictures will tell you a story all on its own.
I sure can tell you I really miss that part of our world…and I am happy to say all that rain has finally stopped that we have been getting since we came back …..so I can be outside again enjoying my gardening now all is green… (cry not ocean blue….)
Memories are beautiful to have too….one day we will be back.
Yes out of one Jelly Roll Fabric bundle I have sewn up 4 of these wonderful spring-summer take along bags.

Eine ideale Tasche für zum Strand, oder auch nur so schenll zum Kaffe zu gehen und nur das Notwendigste mit zu bringen. Ja natürlich auch eine perfect Projekttasche für das Stricken oder Häkeln …
