a bag for Nantucket

DSCN8888DSCN8879DSCN8880DSCN8881DSCN8882DSCN8883The Aeroplane Bag by Sew Sweetness, modifications and mishaps by me.  I truly love this bag. I broke a needle near the end and scatologic mutterings may have been heard, but none of that dampens my enthusiasm for this nearly finished project.  Using an assortment of linen and regular cottons by Cotton and Steel took my bag over the top, and while there are a few things that I might change, I am ridiculously happy.DSCN8884This happy crab helped babysit the pup while I sewed.  Tula is getting accustomed to the long hours I like to spend in my sewing studio.  It’s hard to believe that she’s been here for over a month and that I will have to leave her in the capable hands of a puggie mom for a week.  She’s going camping over Labor Day weekend with Stella and Stanley (pug and boston terrier) and I will miss her.  Lately she has begun snuggling into my arms and purring like a kitten before sleep.  Her eyes which were the deepest navy when she arrived, have turned to chocolate and she has an ancient expression – wisdom beyond her age.  So smart, this breed.  Unnervingly so.
