The Happiness of Soft Yellow Buckets and a Bright Orange Bag
Later at home my book club came over and I drew my teapot, pretty boring, but that was what was in front of me.
But later I decided to paint the fabulous orange bag! Several years ago when F and I started making wallets and bags out of recycled feed and food bags, I used to make paintings of our new designs and use them to update our blog. Then we got so busy I didn't have time to do paintings, and I began updating with photographs.
Tonight I had the great shiny perfect-sized bag that F made for a carry-on bag, for a beach bag, for an overnight bag, for a market bag-- for whenever one of us needs to carry a lot of things in a sturdy but very light and wonderfully roomy bag. We share this bag, but someday we're going to have time to make a second one so we can each have one.
Meanwhile, I had so much fun painting it (and then drawing all the things that fit easily into it) if you're going to the beach, for example), and I'm going to use it update our PieceWorks Wallets & Things blog. You can order this very bag on our new catalog page for Big Loosey-Goosey Bags, which we should be posting on Thursday. Meanwhile, you can pre-order one for yourself for $35 (fully lined) or $25 (unlined) by emailing us at weRpiecework@gmail.com.
