Lots of sewing again this weekend.
  • Two more envelopes for my SWAK envelope Swap.  I am now about three months ahead, so that is one less thing to have to worry about keeping up to date with, when I start work.
  • This pile of fabric and cord, got turned into a lined Drawstring backpack for one of my nieces in Australia.  Modeled by Miss B. Tutorial from here, though I made mine a little bit bigger and cut my pieces 15"x18". I have one more to make for my youngest niece,  who is starting ballet lessons this year.
Some late summer blooms from my garden:
  • my favourite tropical Vireya
  • a geranium/pelargonium - that is almost a velvety maroon in colour and texture.  Unfortunately my photo doesn't really show that.
Hope you all had a fabulous weekend .


  1. You've got some gorgeous fabrics there Julie - I really like the colours you are putting together for the envelopes. And the bag is awesome too - just right for a ballerina!

  2. The envelopes are cute and that bag is precious! Those ballet slippers are sweet.

  3. It's nice to see this bright, warm photos. I love the ballerina print fabric. Thanks for posting the link to the tutorial.
