Public Boat Docks in Seeley's Bay

Saturday, May 16, 2009


Here it is again, where has the time flown to? I have spent a busy week both inside and outside of the house. The gardens are finally in wonderful shape, new cedars have been planted, dead bushes have been removed, bushes have been pruned, bulbs have been split and replanted, most of the grass has been moved and all of the weeds that could be found have been plucked up and thrown away.

We've endured several thunder storms and heavy rainfall so inbetween the gardens outside I have spent time with Nessie, my sewing machine and put together more quilted totes.

I sincerely hope your not bored with what has become a passtime for me and hopefully these will all sell and I shall have more money to buy more fabrics to play with. I am showing off these bags which I hope you will find pleasing.

I would publicly like to thank BARBARA for the donations she so generously provided to me this week also, and Barbara if your reading, contact me again, I have lost your e-mail and cannot find you in the phone book. I have been given two almost brand new sewing machines. These will be living in the Craft Cottage Project which is being put together at the Retirement Residence property in our town. Mind you it will still take us time and more money to bring the cottage up to standards whereby people can come and enjoy crafting, or learning to sew or quilt, knit or crochet. There are no real places in my town for people who enjoy crafting to congregate, so my friend and I have been provided with the cottage which is large enough inside for us to house all of the machinery, fabrics, crafting materials, notions, and so very much more. We are anxious to begin, and thanks to our friend Barbara we have received a great start to our collections.

I digress, here they are, Daisies Of The Field, All That Jazz and Up Up and Away totes. I still have a few more to photograph and put up here but you can see I have been putting very good use to the time I was provided with this week.

Since we Canadians are celebrating our Victoria Day long weekend, I wish all Canadians a wonderful weekend and ultimately good weather for the rest of it.

As for our good neighbours in The United States, we wish you a great Memorial Day weekend next weekend and lots of great weather to go along with it.

Daisies Of The Field Interior

Daisies Of The Field Exterior which has 2 nicely divided pockets.

Interior of All That Jazz tote sports one huge pocket for sheet music or magazines, even pattern pages, and two pockets for keys, wallets, or whatever it is you may need to carry about.

All That Jazz also has one exterior pocket sufficient in size to carry magazines, pattern pages, or sheet music. It is a fun and practical tote to be certain.

I enjoyed playing with this fabric and decided to name this tote, Up Up and Away. I outlined many of the Hot Air Balloons and made different pockets for the exterior of the tote.

The totes interior has two pockets but is plenty deep and wide to carry such a variety of good stuff...

This is the back of the exterior of the tote. Don't you just love these fabrics? Their so colourful.
The fabric designers are so creative in their artistic endeavors and the manufacturers who buy these designs and make the fabrics that fabricholics like me just have to have are wonderful. Sometimes it becomes quite the self-dare to actually cut up such beautiful pieces of fabric.
Do come back and visit soon, I know I will have more totes on here to share with you.
