little projects

This week I made myself a new Sunday bag.  I kind of made this up as I went along so that it would fit my tablet perfectly.  It dresses it up for Sunday best since I keep my scriptures and lesson manuals on my tablet.  Nice and handy.

And the wall quilt for my grandkid’s play area is finished and on the wall.  This corner of our house is in the basement so the light isn’t great for picture taking.  But it really is a bright and cheerful addition to the family room.

My latest read is “Remembering Isaac” by Ben Behunin.  Mr. Sunshine and I met the author one day a few months ago and when I invited him to speak at our book club, he came!  …and everyone loved him!  He has written several books.  This one is about a young man named Jake, who is a village potter finding his place in a small Pennsylvania community with a long history of pottery.  The author is a potter too and I see him in this book.  I am almost half way through and really enjoying it!

Very sweet bag! I love the BW&R combo. The little wall hanging turned out adorable too. I'll have to look for that author on my next library run. I love to read. Have a happy day!

So far I've resisted the temptation to make a bag, you did a great job on yours, the colors look very dressy, very Sunday best!

That's a very pretty bag. I like the colors you picked out, and you're very smart to make it to fit your tablet.

I believe that book is the first in a series of three - I read most of them - very interesting! I actually bought a piece of the author's work years ago at the Park City Arts Festival - long before I knew about his writing!

It must be pottery day in the blog world, or at least my little world. Yours is the second one I've seen so far this morning that had something to do with pottery. Great Sunday bag!
