Getting Somewhere

Do you have some days where you feel like you do nothing but spin your wheels?... and then the next day it's like you got more than double the amount of stuff accomplished than the day that you ran around in circles? So, from this notorious circle-spinner, I have to say that it is nice to actually get somewhere.

Last week I was a little hesitant to give you any kind of preview because I wasn't sure if I would get a chance to work on them anytime soon... but here's a little taste of the new cosmetic bags that I've been working on.

I think this one is my favorite... I first fell in love with the "Summer Totem" fabric, and mixing it with the quirky "Buoyancy" fabric was quite fun.

... but I was asked the question after my last post if I had picked a favorite between red and blue yet... I'm probably drawn more to deep reds than blues, and I just fell in love with this deep teal accent ribbon... I think it gives it just the right "pop".

Hmmm... but with this deep, rich red velvet trim, kinda makes a girl teeter on the fence, huh?

... but I think I had the most fun with the mix/match patchwork bags. I can't say that I'm planning on taking up quilting any time soon, but when you can't pick a favorite, what better way to work than to take 'em all, right? Do you like to do patchwork and quilting, or are you a small projects kinda gal? (or guy)

  3. Hi Allison, wunderschön Deine Etuis. Die Loulouthistoffe sind im Moment auch meine absoluten Lieblingsherbststöffchen. Ich glaube, ich muss da noch einmal in Deinen shop.... LG Rike

  4. ok, GORGEOUS! I'm so not surprised. =) You have such great taste and an eye for color combos.

    I totally hear you on wheel spinning. This was was supposed to be a chill week for me, but I'm on day 3 of sinus stuff, so yeah, not so much. I did manage something yesterday though... =)
