A Tote Bag, An Unusual Bloom, and a Silly Sadie
I did it! I finally finished a little project I started a few weeks ago. You may remember me sharing this dish towel last month. It came with another one that I purchased to use as a table runner. I immediately envisioned this one to be a tote bag. So....that's what I made with it.
I wanted a coral colored fabric to line it with and was lucky to find this piece with silver dots on it at JoAnn's. I love it!
You can see it peeking out in the photo below.
I love the ship's wheel design!
I bought a piece of rope at JoAnn's and some coral colored grosgrain ribbon to complete the bag. I really like how it turned out. I will probably use it on my upcoming cruise to carry my camera, money, and book around when we are out and about.
The hubby wanted to know why I didn't put the knots on the inside where they wouldn't show. Silly man...lol! I told him I like the knots and they go with the nautical theme...:)
Mama and I went for a walk yesterday and I had to snap a picture of her sago palm. This is the first time it has had this bloom in the center.
I looked it up and found out that this one is a female plant. The male plants produce a cone shaped bloom. The bloom is interesting and has a pretty shape, but the color is very unappealing. Hopefully one of her others will turn out to be a male plant.
I'll leave you with a lovely picture of my Sadie.
Isn't she adorable? LOL!
This is what she was doing.....sleeping. She lays in some of the strangest positions!
See that yucky brown carpet she's laying on? Hopefully it will be gone soon! I can't wait to start on our renovation and I really can't wait to see my vision come to life! Soon.....very soon!
Short and sweet today but hopefully I will be back soon with another project. Have a blessed & beautiful weekend my friends!
Until next time.....
