work bag

So last night I was uploading all my photos from over the weekend and the computer froze up and I lost them all--over a hundred, including a couple shots of little Rainer that I thought were very good (he's so hard to photograph because he rarely holds still). Arrgh! Very frustrated, but I'm over it. Otherwise I would have posted last night.
I made this bag for work. The proportions are a little odd (it's tall!), but it actually kind of works for what I'll use it for. Or it could just be a general bag for outings, the beach, that sort of thing. I like this fabric my mom bought me on one of her trips. But Faith thinks it looks like "mom" fabric (in a bad way). Dieter thinks it looks like sea anemones.

I'm most excited about this little zippered pocket. I've never done one before--it was fun.

I worked today, so couldn't see the inauguration, but still am so excited about President Obama. Hooray for a fresh start.

I like the "mom" fabric. It's happy and don't we need it all to go to work everyday? A happy bag to take with us...
I don't know what I would do if I would lost that many pictures... I can't promise that the computer would make it...

That is fabulous fabric. I was concerned about no post this morning. I'm glad it was just a camera/computer glitch. Happy Belated Birthday to Ken!

Thanks, Carrie. Yes, in the grand scheme of things, I'm so glad it was just a computer issue.

Love the bag! I've been thinking about making some bags myself.

Hi Gretchen. It's a wreath.

Mom fabric? Perhaps it is. But it is beautiful!
