Friday Finishes and Monsoon Flowers

Here’s some things I’ve finished this week.  Our dog groomer, Becky, is a new mom for a baby girl last month and it’s no surprise as to what I would make for a baby gift.  The straps were made on my Inkle loom.IMG_2084 IMG_2085

Another project bag with Inkle loom straps sewn onto a canvas base with Kumhimo cords. It’s easy to make the cords and straps match when you use the same yarn for both.IMG_2089

Gee, another project bag.  I’m slowly using up some quilting fabric.  This one will be hard to give away, but it will go to a fellow Yarn Babe.


It’s almost like a two-fer.


I found a pattern for the Japanese Knot Bag.  They are cute, but not quite as easy to make as the square project bags with the Kumihimo cords.  The Yarn Babes will find a use for them.


Our monsoon rains have really made the wildflowers pop this year.  I took these pictures on our mountain bike ride yesterday.IMG_2096 IMG_2097IMG_2100IMG_2049IMG_2051

This is a coyote melon which is about the size of a softball.  IMG_2053

Well, that’s it for today, hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  Stay safe and stay dry!

See ya,

    I love all your bags! Wow! My favorite is the second one with the cords and the big bead closure. Very cool! I like those loop bags too. They’d make great project bags and be comfy to carry. Your flower photos from your bike ride make me smile. I’m always doing that on bike rides and hikes too…stopping to take flower photos. But, that’s why we’re out there, right? To enjoy the great outdoors and all it has to offer. I love wildflowers! You found some great ones! Is that an actual melon or is it one of those gourds that looks like one from the outside but it’s fibery on the inside?

  2. Oh, I am in bag heaven looking at these finished projects!!!!! I would own a million…great job on the weaving accents! Love the bonus flower pics, too.
