Today is the summer solstice, and it's simply fantastic, how much more light we have these days! It's gives me energy, makes the mornings so much easier, and also: picture-taking is so much more fun.
That said it's been a pain with blogger for a few days: it didn't let me to load any pictures here, and posting without pictures is a no-no. Oh yes, it was my fault in a way, I didn't realize that blogger stores all the images I load here into a web-album attached to my email. That's fine, but I use my web albums to store some other pictures too, and it was getting rather crowded there. Worry no more, though, I did some spring cleaning yesterday, moved pictures around and now I have some space left there again.
Remember these? Inspired by those I have been making some more designing and voilà: the new birdie-bags were born. Of course the wheel wasn't invented again, but I rather like these! I have made something similar years ago, and had even drawn the pattern - it took just a little modification and the lunch bag is here.
They're spacious, and my pretty (reused) fabric stash gets in good use. And what I really like, is that the fabric gets seen more than in usual bags. And who couldn't use the extra space and extra pockets?
Colors I choose seems to get brighter and sunnier too, just perfect for the summer solstice don't you think?
