yesterday was a National Holiday
UMI NO HI
which means ocean day
which means go to the beach and hang out
(and spend money and stimulate the economy)
we went to the river
not because of the recent shark sitings
and warnings to stay out of the water
but, just because.

i have been working on this bag lately, among other things….. the rain keeps me in the house and t.v. shows on the computer keep me entertained and stitching keeps me busy……
this dark blue cloth makes the most absolutely perfect sized bag.
with some sashiko waves on the side
and a rabbit (pocket) frolicking with the moon…
in my stash, i have stuff i don’t even remember getting.
neighbors and friends give me stuff when they hear that i collect old stuff
i pull clothes out of recycle trash
i buy stuff at flea markets
i lined this bag with a scrap of stuff that is silky and from an old kimono.
recycling at it’s finest!!!
