Bag Finish & Wild Weather

On Sunday I finished my bag, yay!
I give you the Serendipity Bag, a Janelle Wind Collection design from her book Pieces of Me...
 The bag part measures approx 12inches x 13½inches. I added a magnetic clasp inside the top band.
No dark lining here!

I was scurrying about taking these pics yesterday, before the weather turned ghastly (more on that in a moment). A great item for my Sew It's Finished count.
So pleased with this bag!! 
I am going to try my hand at making a coin purse to go with it, using a tutorial from Designs By Fee, which is HERE.

The shrub outside Hibiscus HQ was doing some showing off last week, cheery with...
 HIBISCUS!!
Well, good thing I took these pics when I did, because they are now pulp, due to a wild front that blew in late yesterday. At least the warm winds that preceded it got all my washing dry!

These are for Sunny... & anyone else who longs to set their eyes on the ocean...
 I went for a look at my nearby beaches this morning... could hardly open my eyes for the winds, but I still do love to go & feel it on my skin. No 'bobbing' here today, Maria!!
I have been doing some other sewing too... hemming school trousers for mr12!
~*~Happy Wednesday Everyone~*~

We've just been watching the weather on the news and thought we might just see some rain our way from it. Sadly no but I do hope it eases off for you soon. Love the bag and I love how it has light lining. Makes it much easier to see what is in the bottom, like keys lol.

What a great bag, love the fabric. It was a shame all your flowers were destroyed. You never know what will happen with storms these days. Hope you are having a good week. Hugs.....

Oh I love the bag! Your choice of fabrics is marvelous. I love the sight of the ocean...after all, I am an ocean girl who moved to the desert.
