Some Kind of Wonderful...

... BAG,
designed by Anni Downs...

... is our May's project in Stitch-A-long group.

Guess what? I was so busy bee, that I finished it already yesterday!
... now I have more than a half of the month time to do 'something else'...

 Ups! My SKofW bag is just not the same as Anni's...
I made some changes (= well justified scam tricks?), but I'm very pleased with it ;o) Especially I love the shape of the bag... the bottom of the bag is made with a gusset. Otherwise it's very simple... no inner pockets, no zipper or buttons. I think it's a perfect summer bag!

It's measurements are 10" x 12" x 3".

Ups! Look how a nasty looking cat... left hand!!
Fenix has a bad day... or he does not like that I put that silly collar to him on the bag...
... in reality at this minute he noticed a fly and he prepared to hunt for it!

More beautiful SAL projects you will find here. There you find also my reasoning for those changes.

By the way...
... I have now decided to assemble the border of Mill Girl's quilt like this...

... color arrangement of hour glass units is similar to that of the color wheel.
NOW the question is...
shall I sew them together as shown in the right side...
or as shown at the top...???
Decisions... decisions...

... maybe might be better to do something else...

... with the joys of Spring...

HAPPY WEEK to YOU ALL!!!

I think you did a great job on the bag. I like it much better than the embroidered ones. It is usually a good thing to leave a project for a while so that when you come back to it, you can decided which border you want. The quilt will look lovely, whichever way you decided to do the borders.

Borders reflecting the hourglass shapes in the quilt top would be great in the border. The squares are nice but slightly less so. But it is your decision!

Kiva kassi! Tykkään tiimalasimallista reunuksessa, se tuntuu ilmavammalle neliöiden rinnalla ja jatkaa tilkkupinnan keveyttä. Fenixissä taitaa olla puutarhurin vikaa? Melkoisen tuiman katseen olet saanut Fenixiltä tallennettua, enpä ole ennen nähnyt, että kissa voi näyttää noin vihaiselta (vai tarkkaavaiselta?):D
