Love those Handles

This set of handles have been hanging around in my studio for a while.  I love the handles and new I needed to design something to fit them.  I am now down to okay, I have the bag sorta done in muslin, I have created some really pretty crazy blocks. I need a little more fabric to accent the side and bottom  of the bag.  This ended up being a bit harder task than I thought.  I will simply blame it on the handles.

A little Inspiration

It seems where ever I go Nature inspires me. While doing some teaching and shows in Florida we visited a nature preserve. I was so excited to see the birds. I came home with lots of pictures.
 The subtle color of a bird that is the most beautiful color of grey, or is it blue?
 but it is funny what might most inspire you...The boardwalk Itself.
