Coffee on the balcony

My good friend Megan was visiting her mom in Sarasota, which is about an hour south of Tampa, and I joined them this weekend. Sarasota is a great little city with tons of boutiques and amazing restaurants.

Megan’s mom owns a 12th-floor condo about a block from the water, and her view is gorgeous. There’s nothing like having your morning coffee overlooking Sarasota Bay. A girl could get used to that.

And on a crafty note, I made a new Luna Satchel for The Boutique.

Luna Satchel

It’s made out of wide-wale magenta corduroy and lined in the colorful polka-dot fabric I purchased in Fernandina last weekend. The new bag is listed here.

I’m heading out to take a long walk and take advantage of this wonderful weather. Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!

    You got traveling and sewing time in? What a lucky girl. The view looks amazing and it is nice to have time to stop and enjoy it. I’ve been trying to get myself to slow down in general and I am getting there lately. It isn’t so much sewing or anything like that (that I do instead of watching TV, which ends up being a lot of time). It is more like, trying to do 800 things on my days off. I mean it is a day off right? Stopping and sipping coffee is really what my focus should be.

    The magenta cord material looks great as a bag. It’s funny I never bought any corduroy until I saw, I think the creamy cord you used for a purse, it may have been eggplant colored. I then almost immediately saw some 60% off at Jo-anne’s (of course) and bought some. I’m thinking about working it into a quilt as it is sort of unconventional to be used in that way. Whew, I keep leaving long comments lately.
