Today, walking the path, I took the time to photograph this.
I can use my snowshoes for a few days.
And walking stick for occasional balance needs!
Coin purse completed with key ring and clip, slice of upcycled leather on zipper pull
Fabric from ‘Starts’ and selected lining
Sometimes improvement is only a hazy possibility. I pulled this fabric from my Starts box. (I’m not telling you how many of those I have.) Or perhaps it could be called the To Be Continued box(es!). It lay on my cutting table for weeks. I couldn’t decide how to develop it further. I liked the colorwash quality of what was no doubt a casual experiment or discarded result of another work. Perhaps I could have made something wonderful from it – or perhaps I would have ruined what was good. This is always the big decision for any creation.
One day I just felt like sewing so that is what I did. The bright red orange cotton worked perfectly as lining.
I made the handy size zipper pouch, then a key ring pouch using the remainder.
Available in my Etsy Shop.
So far the only thing spectacular about this day is it is fresh and new. And that is enough.
“Nothing should be prized more highly than the value of each day.”
This does seem like where my words are lately – frozen! But they will come, as today the wet chill of yesterday is giving way to sunshine.
I’m struggling to make a habit of talking to you on this blog. Some days the words won’t come. Often on my thrice daily walks (with the Labrador fitness trainer!) I compose flows of words that seldom bloom through the keyboard.
