Working, working, working away!

I just wish I could whistle while I work, but unfortunately I have never been able to make much more than a sharp single syllable note (if you can even call it that) come out when I try to whistle.  So, it would be the most monotone song to ever permeate this home, and I think the dog might even have to leave the room.  ;0)  It's okay, though because I have the radio and my imagination to keep me going.  I have been working on more bags lately and have added several to my shop, with more on the way. 

Right now I am working on an embellishing job for several little canvas backpacks that I bought years ago.  I had other plans for them at that time, but they never materialized.  I am glad for that, though, because I think this project is much cooler than I what I had originally set out to create.  I hope other people feel the same way and enjoy them too!  I am having wonderful fun with fusible webbing and vintage fabric scraps.  I wish I had jumped on the fusible webbing bandwagon a long time ago because I think it might be one of the most wonderful inventions of all time.  Unfortunately, I was not a card carrying member until recently because I remember the stuff my mom tried using when I was little and it never seemed to work.  I cannot tell you how many hems she tried to "cheat" on by fixing them with something called "wonder under", I believe, and as soon as you washed the garment the hem would come right back out.  I guess this product has come a long way.  Uh-oh, I am feeling the beginning of an iron-on patch craze around here.  Never mind my bad whistling, if the dog does decide to stick around she might just get a new fusible webbing accessory.  Watch out Rox., the iron is hot!

Have a great holiday weekend everyone!

Hi, I actually wanted to leave a comment on your previous post but the page wasn't displaying properly. Anyway, just wanted to comment on your photo challenges. I take my shots outside preferably on gray days, otherwise in the shade, and if it's raining by a window. I surround the object with white card stock so more light is reflected on the object and it is evenly lighted. I always overexpose my shots by 1/3 of a stop. And most importantly I use the white balance feature of my digital camera to ensure colours come out right. Good luck!
