~In the Bag~

A bag I designed specifically for a pair of red, leather handles. Half way through I decided to make cloth handles. The leather handles will be better suited with some fall fabrics.

Inside, I put a zippered pocket.

The crazy ink project

I decided to use the 100wt thread and started the background quilting. The gold was used in the colored blocks in the top right.

Using Alcohol Inks I added some color to these silver charms. I may add them to the colored squares, but not sure.....

I really like the different shapes you are doing with your background quilting. My eye keeps traveling all over, taking it all in.
