Cold Weather !

We have had unusually cold weather here in Florida, and while we can't compete with the amount of snow everyone else has had, we have had freezing temperatures for the last couple of days, and yesterday was very cold. A perfect day for staying indoors, I cooked and baked and even managed to sew a little. Our oldest cat Rusty made himself comfortable next to the fire.
I made this bag for my daughter who is going back to college today. I had cut the fabric a while back and finished it yesterday - the pattern is the Frenchy bag by Amy Butler, the fabrics are so much nicer than in the picture. I lined the bag in a coordinating stripe fabric from this line, and it has two big pockets inside with a magnetic snap.

Unglaublich, dass es bei Euch auch kalt ist ! Wenn ich an Florida denke, dann fallen mir Sonne, Strand und kurze Hosen ein und nicht ein brennender Kamin ;-)

Die Tasche ist sehr schön geworden !

Who is the more Happy ? It's the cat !
A cat on a armchair, a fire in the chimney, it's the life !
