I have a few more paintings going up on Etsy this week, just in time for the Black Friday sale which starts…drumroll…on Friday. 😀 I’ll have my listings 10% off, including the pieces already on sale.

sewing: lunch bags

With Christmas coming up, I decided to not be last-minute and so whipped up some pretty lunch bags. These did not come together as quickly as I intended. Somehow I think I can get sewing done in the morning before I go to work, but I never do. Sitting with coffee and reading the internet seems about all the energy I can muster–which is odd, since I get a full night’s sleep. A few days, though, the thought of working with pretty fabrics was enough motivation, and I got a lot of work done.

So pretty, right?

I’m a fan of the draw-string top. Your lunch is entirely safe.

Above is Tilda fabric, and Lecien.

I finally found a use for the silverware fabric! Remember I found it a couple years ago for $3 a yard? It’s not a bargain if you never use it, so I’m glad I know what to do with it now.

This pretty girl was a passerby at an art show I set up at last summer.

Does this feel like it’s been the fastest year ever to you? Me, too. I can’t believe Christmas will be on us so quick. I am completely unprepared–how about you?

I have so many paintings I want to paint, too, and not enough time. Never enough time. So the paintings I *do* find the time to paint are the ones I *really* am excited about. It shows in the finished result, I think.

I titled this one “Kicking It Easy” because of the song. It just fits.kickinit8x24

It’s a fun size, at 8″x24″. Oil on stretched canvas.

Available in my etsy shop.
