Interesting Weekend...

As my earlier post probably suggested I've had a medication switch...and adjusting has been interesting...I'm still on the fence about all this, we'll see how it goes. But thank you all for your information!

Last week I did manage to get these done for the National Capital Cat Show in September:

Then this weekend it's been fun getting these done:

Thanks to a friend for modeling (she wanted to remain anonymous, which meant "headless" so...). This is the shoulder-strap option on the most recent Nana Sadie Rose creation, The Teabird Spindle Bag.

Here it is up close.

And the insides. This little bag isn't for sale, it will be used as a sample at the cat show (I've got to keep somethings to show, folks!)
Then the Teabird has another option, the across-the-body shoulder strap:

This is the Teabird that friend Jocelyn chose. Below you can see the outside:

And the inside (Jocelyn will have no trouble filling this with lovely, lovely spindles, I know!)

I did a lot of the gathered bags and accessories this weekend, and pulled fabrics and coordinated them for bags (always a major investment of time whenever I do it)...I have probably 10-15 bags planned for the cat show, my only hope is that I can get them all done!

My sewing assistant decided she was taking a break this weekend:

Who, Me? Work?

The Tonk, on the other hand, was so engrossed in trying to be helpful, he ended up doing the opposite, of course. We are learning. SLOWLY...

Ooh! Ooh!! I love it! (Beautifully modeled, by the way.) That across-the-body strap looks absolutely perfect, and you're right; there's a spindle waiting for its new home. Thank you! :)

The bags are great. You are incredibly prolific and despite the high volume of output, it is all high quality, too! Jocelyn's looks perfect for her.

You are getting me closer on the bags, but I'm still holding out for backpack style. Not big fat straps - thin ones (or even thinner) like you show here, but set up so you can have them supporting the bag from both shoulders and even be part of the drawstring action. I just can't do the across the body so much - it seems to set off a nerve in my neck. But there are still other lovely bags in your repertoire, so I'm not complaining!

Wonderful bags! I'm sure you will do well at the cat show.

Perhaps The Meezer is on summer vacation.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
