Thankful for my sewing machine

My sewing machine has been in the shop for 3 weeks and I got it back Tuesday. I was getting a little twitchy! So last night I was able to put in a couple of hours of sewing therapy. I finished up my project today and I present you with my new fall bag, just in time for my weekend away. Just like the garden thing, I am so thankful that I can sew because I want to, not because I have to (I have been reading a lot of pioneer time books lately and have a new appreciation for modern technology).

The fabric was a gift from Kira as a thank you for helping with her wedding. I don't usually like pink, but I really like this fabric. It was suppossed to be lined with a green cotton, but that didn't work out, so I lined it with green wool felt with purple felt pockets (you can kind of see them in the second photo). Very appropriate for fall and gives it a nice stiffness. I like the dimensions of it a lot. Did I write them down though, so I can make it again? Of course not!

Do you usually use a pattern for your bags? I really like this one! I am thankful that I have a home to come home to at the end of the day!!
