all shall be well

Life has been less of a struggle lately! For lack of a less self-indulgent way to put that. I've been focusing on building good routines and habits, and strangely enough, it's been working. 

 This might be the best shoulder bag I've ever made. Recycled linen pants for the outer fabric (embroidered with new embroidery floss), recycled flannel lining, and a recycled cotton shirt for the lining.

 This will probably be the best zip purse I ever make, once I finish making it.

I make everything out of reused fabric, which is super rewarding but also frustrating. (Have I typed that exact sentence here before, or does it just seem familiar because I have that thought every time that I sew?) I'm thinking of a small expansion into new fabric, really just new solid color fabric to make it easier to use all my scrap fabric. I'm a little obsessed with scrap quilting at the moment.
