Market Bag in Moda Aviary Fabrics

I am very excited about making this market bag. I bought the magazine "Bags, Pillows, and Pincushions" by Better Homes and Gardens. It is full of fun projects and this market bag was one of them. I had a charm pack of Moda's Aviary fabrics and put them to use for the bag. It went together very easily and I decided to put a loop and button closure on it. Will use it for my trip to see a Shakespeare play next month in Lake Tahoe, "Much Ado About Nothing."


I finished a little Christmas cross stitch design. A little snowbaby. I used Weeks Dye Works flosses and some wonderfully glittery pink floss from Kreinik. Antique white beads for the snow. I've been thinking about putting a bunch of my designs into a quilt that hangs on the wall. Sounds cozy to me.

Pumpkins Embroidery

I've been thinking of autumn decor lately and my favorite, pumpkins, came to mind. I like to get my seasonal and holiday projects underway early so I can have them ready to decorate when the time comes. So often that means Christmas in July and that is kind of fun. I am heading to Tahoe this weekend for a camping trip. Very excited, looking for new inspiration.

Handwoven Tote

I found this handwoven tote in my stash of things and I really liked the bright summer colors. I used to weave a lot when my kids were younger. It amazes me now that I managed to have the time to do that and make something useful. It is such a challenging craft.
