Some Sunday sewing.
I pulled some of my Japanese fabrics to make a tote bag with some kimono accents.
I was looking for a coordinating neutral and I found this batik with japanese characters. Or is this chinese?
I do know this fabric is not from japan.
The fabrics sewed themselves into a simple hip bag with a slip pocket inside as well as outside.
This bag measures 7 1/2" x 8". On the small side.
I sewed the lining longer than the outside and ironed it down to sew, creating an accent at the top.
I've been in a funk since I got back from my trip. Dealing with postal drama that keeps going 'round and 'round inside my head. Tired from a very intense trip that taxed my auto-immune.
I'm trying to make sense of a lot of things in my life.
Friday prompted a turnaround in my mindset.
My postal mgmt is in the quandary of not being able to nail me to the wall on any of their far-fetched accusations. My auto-immune is *there* and I need to continue to be mindful of it.
These things won't change and I need to live my life and not fret at stumbling blocks.
I weeded for an hour this morning too.
Then I planted a bunch of spring greens.
Beets, chard, bok choi, lettuces, kale.
