My adventures in sewing coming soon … if I can figure out how this new posting feature works!
He stepped into the house, “Hi, hon, are you feeling better?”
She said, “Much. I even got some chores done while you were gone.”
“Oh?” He queried, “What did you do?”
She answered, “I put clean shirts on the bed and ironed your sheets and hung them in the closet.”
He looked at her quizzically. “I thought you said you were feeling better?”
Here I am, tempted to start blogging again, but there has been so much change, I don’t even know where to begin. And the change isn’t just technical — I have changed, too. I don’t devour books like I used to. Now, much of my free time is taken up with sewing. I don’t even know what I have to offer for content. I am searching ….
I love taking a flat piece of fabric and giving it form. To me this bag represents the lava flow, island sunsets, the abundance of flowers, graceful hula dancers, and the vivacity that is so very much the islands. Despite all that glory, this bag is still totally laid back and 100% wash and wear — just like Hawaii.
This Lanai Style of Kona Bucket Bag — “Lava Luau” is molten fun. Fully lined, this bag is sturdy enough to be free-standing and measures 24″ in diameter and stands 10″ tall. It has one large inside zippered pocket, a draw-string closure, and sturdy, crossbody carry straps.
Once again, it’s been awhile since I last posted. Let’s see if we can remedy that. First, let me catch you up on my life.
I live in Hawai’i. I’m a substitute teacher. I love to sew.
Since it is summer and I am not teaching, I have been sewing. Here is one of my creations:
This Lanai Style of Kona Music Bag — “The Jazzy” really knows how to sing the blues. The bag measures 19″ x 19″ x 4″ and has one outside slip pocket, and one 12″ wide, 8″ deep inner zip pocket.
These totes are huge. A couple of our local music teachers carry these. Gloria has had hers for over 2 years and it is still going strong. She regularly carries 20 pounds of music and student files in it, and takes the bag everywhere she goes.
