note to self when folks are coming early in the morning to make a ton of noise - do not go to bed five hours prior.
yesterday was a crazy day with packaging a ton of orders and getting things organized at home for all the tradespeople.  I've been looking forward for the weekend to arrive.  I have to work so much harder during the week so that I can take it easy on our weekend.  I have pulled it off for a few weekends and I have to take advantage of this beautiful weather - my mantra these days is "get outside".

I am loving these new indigo dyed pouches, it's a wide one - around 10in. wide.  the bottom is made from CONE denim woven in north carolina and the indigo part is either linen or hemp - I love how the texture of the fabric is visible and indigo dyeing is really awesome and so much fun.  I think when I make the dipped dyed totes I will have to make this version in the TOTE style.

a huge thank you to all of you for your continued support - thank you so much for your feedback, I really enjoy hearing from you via comments here and email.

I hope you take the opportunity to get outside this weekend.  have a good one :-)

  7. The pouches look fantastic Arounna, such wonderful depth of colour. We are experiencing some unexpected, glorious winter sunshine and warmth here in Melbourne Australia at the moment. I will definitely be enjoying it while it lasts. I hope you got out in the warmth and sunshine too.
