another birdie sling

a summer bag
I made a new bag for the summer a couple weeks ago!  I still love my first birdie sling, I just wanted something light and bright.  Plus, I like to have options.  I was the kind of kid growing up that rearranged her room once a month.  I love change.  But anyways, back to the bag... :)

I fell in love with this feather print from Martha Negley the first time I saw it on Etsy.  The feathers are beautiful, and I love all of the different colorways.  I also bought the white/pink for a tank and the olive for a project bag! I knew this mustardy yellow would be perfect for a Birdie Sling.

I used quite a bit of my Lush woodgrain stash for the handle.  This has been one of my favorite fabrics for years, so it was hard to use up such a big chunk of what I have left.  I'm glad I did!  I think it looks great with the feathers. 
new socks
I have a new pair of socks on the needles too.  This is a simple pattern called Pillar, and I am using Malabrigo sock yarn in lettuce.  I am loving everything about these socks.

Phew, two blog posts this week?  I'm on a roll. :) 

Have a great weekend!

I had a lot of fun making this quilt.  It is made from one layer cake (plus some coordinating prints) and was simple to cut out and assemble.  I love and highly recommend the pattern: Crackle by Aneela Hoey.

rainy days

We've had some rainy days over here.  I don't mind rain on a Monday.  I'm usually feeling a little tired from the weekend, and it is nice to have an excuse to stay in.

I've been working on the new quilt I shared with you in my last post.  It is such a fun little project.  The quilting went quickly, and I decided to check out my Art Gallery stash for the binding.  They were kind enough to send me some half yard cuts from Oval Elements and Pure Elements a while back.  They are such lovely fabrics, I can't get enough them.

I ended up going for the pink dots for the binding, a perfect match wouldn't you say?

It is raining again today, so I think I'll spend a little time on the couch sewing the binding down.  You know how much I love that part.
Last is a picture from yesterday's rainy morning.  Finley is too busy to snuggle much anymore, so I definitely cherish these rare moments when she does.
