Amiss, Awry, Askew, Astray … an A

{A is for amiss, awry, and askew .. astray and ALB, too}

The appliqué stitching was supposed to look unintentionally, though intentionally, amiss. The monogram was supposed to look unintentionally, though intentionally, askew. And the decorative stitching was supposed to look unintentionally, though intentionally, artistic. But the combination … well, it’s all awry! The overall feel was supposed to be much, much more sophisticated/chic/boho equestrian.  Too bad my aim was all astray. Can you tell I’m contemplating words that begin with the letter “A”? It’s the champagne I had at afternoon tea at The Painted Lady with Mum. Yikes.

So this is me admitting I’ve failed at something. Perhaps my next attempt at the unintentional, though intentional, Anthropologie-esque look will yield better results. Until then, I’m off to enjoy more bubbly of some sort. Stay tuned.

Catching Up

{right outside my window}

Say whaaat? You’d prefer a rainbow or the moon outside your window? Well, sighting these little mushrooms made my day yesterday, so I thought I’d share. They inspired me to think of fall … and black leggings with a crisp, white oxford and brown riding boots. So I snapped a photo of the little beauties, mixed up a skim white russian, & got to work on this large tote for fall:


I’ll be putting it on Etsy this afternoon, but I secretly hope no one buys it … because I’d love to keep it for myself. This is a larger version of the Cruisin’ Tote, style name TBD. I love my Cruisin’ Tote’s compactness, perfect for a quick beach cruise to 7-11 for más cervezas, but wanted to make a larger version of it for fall. Come November, I’ll need the extra room to tote a quilt and thermos of coffee to the beach, and this bag should be perfect for all that and a bag of Milanos.

Since summer’s still upon us, I also made a Cruisin’ Tote with this Kaffe Fassett home dec fabric I lurve:

Yum. Off to sew up a custom yoga mat bag … see you again soon!
