A New Name...

Brynwood Needleworks "Bryn Crossbody Wallet"

This custom order is finished and ready to ship. Four crossbody wallets ready to go to their new homes. I made three in the Hibiscus cork fabric and three in the Orchid cork fabric. (One of each pattern will go into the shop later today.) 

These have a little "headroom" between the flap and the main body of the wallet so you can actually put a little more inside without the wallet getting too tight. I was also able to put my iPhone 6 Plus (with an Otter case) inside this size.

I've renamed this crossbody wallet. I've decided that our Labrador and Golden retriever girls will be the names for this wallet, and all my new designs from now on. That being said, these are now called my "Bryn Crossbody Wallet".

It's going to be fun as I debut new pieces with more names of my girls...Bryn, Kyra, Kes, Kirby, Samantha Rose, Matty (Mata Hari), Bee and Bella. The Grab & Go Crossbody and Wristlets will keep their current names.

These six are finished, and my new lining fabrics arrived yesterday. That means I'll get them cut out today and finish prepping to complete the other nine. 
 
I have a few other projects I'm going to be working on, too. I'm so inspired here at the farm, and I can't wait to share what's next.

Work and Play...

Assembly Line Sewing

Yesterday was a perfect day for balance. The weather was beautiful, I have 90% of six wallets completed and Handsome and I had a date.

I started the day by sewing in the studio. At lunch time, I took a break outside on our porch so I could enjoy the weather, and then I got back to work. I managed to get quite a bit accomplished.

Lighthouse Big Band
 
Around 3 pm, Handsome told me about a local big band (Lighthouse Big Band in Fond du Lac, WI) whose lead saxophone was leaving the band. Last night was his...last night with them, and they were having a party for him. We went to the party, and heard some great music. It's so nice to see that there are so many music groups in the area, and we're enjoying getting to listen to them.
Today, I'm going to finish the six crossbody wallets I'm working on in this batch I'm waiting for a new lining fabric to arrive before I complete the rest. I'm thinking that will be by the weekend. I have to say, I'm really liking how balance is playing out here at the farm.

Tuesdays With Tag - Country Walkies...

Brynwood's Taggart 07/2417

Hi, Everybody!

It's been perfect weather for walkies, so that's what I did...Walkies.

The Call of the Open Road

 Do you hear it? Yup. It's the Call of the Open Road!

My Roaming Gnome

 I couldn't help but hum "Country Roads" as I walked on the farm lane.

There And Back Again

 I love these little walks with Mom. There's the smell of lilies comin' from the other
side of the fence row, and you just never know what might jump right out at you.
Why, I noticed a rabbit that must be the mama.  I could have caught her, but
Mom wouldn't let me. She mentioned somethin' about fleas and other bad bugs.

Uphill

We turned up toward the hill, and caught the last of the sunset over the hill.
 
Guardin' My Garden

...and maybe a flower or two. Thanks, Mom. I love these little hikes!
 We think it's important to take regular breaks...and always take them outside!

I'll see you again in seven. 'til then...
