What do you think now?

Ta da!  Here is "Desolation" with a red border.

Isn't my "design bunk bed" elegant?
I have to say that I like it so much better now! The red fabric has a couple of shades of red mixed with the black and I think it compliments the "mountains" pretty well.  I knew I would find the perfect fabric at Burkholder's and I did.  Someone suggested that I donate it if I didn't like it but it is a weird size.  I am going to hang on to it for a while and then come up with a plan.

So this is what else has been happening in the studio.

This is a laptop bag for my cousin. She picked the initial fabric and then told me to do whatever I wanted with the balance of the fabrics. In the interior there is a flap pocket that opens for file folders and on the other side is a full row of pockets in different sizes.

The bag is only 3" deep so it fits most laptops fairly snugly. My Dell fits perfectly and I really like this bag. I may have to make one for myself!

Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday!


  1. PERFECT! That red really sets it off! Love that laptop bag too, you are really great at making bags of any kind and of course I love the color choices for the bag.
