The big frill

A play on words of course.
A new bag just completed, quite a lot of sewing but really worth taking your time and doing some each day.
I cut all the frills and straps one day, next time did the body of the bag and hemmed the frills with a rolled hem.
Another day I gathered everything and sewed the components.
The final stitching was today on a video which is on my YouTube channel
Here it is:

le Jardin

Book about the gardens of France
This journal is a card and paper book with some of my favorite images.
It has a pocket to hold garden notes and seed packets.
Made to put in the market bag or garden basket and write notes and add photos

Tablet wrap holder

Since I was given a 10 inch Samsung tablet I need a safe place to hold it.
This is the wrap with five pockets to hold pens, notebooks,  journals and the tablet safely inside.
It is padded and strong with a lot of detail, love it.
very secure with a flap over the main pocket.
This is the front of the case seen under the heart below

Storm in the morning


Strong winds storm from off the sea
rain clouds gathering
 darkness falls mountains shelter

we do not feel the brunt of storms here very much,
We are small islands way out in the pacific.
When we do it is a really big event
we love our ohana and our aina
