What I have been working on


These are what I have been working on lately.  The larger green bag with the flowers is a bag to house my netbook.  I got a netbook for Christmas and wanted to protect it when travelling as it is really handy to take along on a trip.  I padded it with quilt batting but didn't quilt it.  The small green pouch is called "A Zippered Pouch"  I found it on http://projectsbyjane.blogspot.com/ and it is handy to store small things in.  The flowered pouch is called "Makeup Bag" and it is from http://flossieteacakes.blogspot.com/ .  I thought it would be a nice size for makeup in your purse or for travelling.

The long black bag is one of my creations.  It is a bag for my walking stick.  I have a walking stick that comes apart in 3 sections and telescopes together to use.  The stick has a spring loaded anti-shock mechanism and a thermometer and compass on the wrist strap.  It is very helpful in going down slopes, saving stress on the knees.  I wish I had it when we were in Italy in 2008 because of the hills in the town of Assisi.  It was very helpful in Spain last year. 

The small blue pouch is a water bottle holder.  I have made at least 6 of these for family and friends.  Notice the buckle on the strap.  That is not in the pattern but I like to make my straps adjustable so the the person wearing it can adjust it for their liking.  This pattern is from http://www.pinkchalkstudio.com/ .  I am so glad I found this pattern as it also is handy for travelling and keeping you hydrated without having to carry a bottle of water.  You just slip it in the pouch and away you go.
