Mostly I worked on bags over the weekend. Four to be exact, all from the same beach bag pattern I started out with two weeks ago. Quite a few people have asked me for the pattern. I don't have one, but started with a rectangle about 15" x 12" and tapered the bottom a couple of inches. This one's for an old friend I haven't seen in long time. The little twill tab says, Remember and the bluework embroidery is a flower motif of Forget-Me-Nots, an old pattern from the turn of the century, so it's got built-in sentiment. I seem to have lots of little wayward embroideries like this that I've kept from projects that never got finished, or from samples I've made, or that were part of a vintage piece. They come in handy when I want to add a flourish without losing my momentum on a project. It seemed like the perfect choice for this bag anyway, and I really like how it all came together. Now to fill it with vintage embroidery patterns, floss, fabric, and a long, newsy letter before I send it on its merry one-thousand mile journey, where I hope it brings a little happy rememberance.
