Fiona Bag and old friends

I spent last evening putting the finishing touches on a new Fiona Bag for the Boutique.

I chose the same fabric combination that I used to make a purse for myself last month and lined the whole bag in the retro-inspired pink fabric.

The new bag is listed here in my Etsy shop.

I’m meeting a friend from high school for coffee tonight. He graduated a couple of years before me, and I think we kept in touch after that, but then we somehow lost touch once I graduated. That happens with so many people. Sometimes it’s sad to think about the friends we’ve lost track of over the years.

But through the beauty of the web, he found me on MySpace several months ago. He’s in Tampa this week, and we decided to meet up tonight to catch up over a cup of coffee. I’m really looking forward to it. We’ve both surely changed quite a bit in the past 12 (yikes!) years.
