Cute Bag!

This cute pyramid bag was made by a friend of mine, Jen Duncan. Jen is one of the most talented people I know. She comes into the shop and I love it when she brings in a project she's finished. She quilts, sews and her house is so very cute...she's painted, stenciled, sewed, recovered and more. I admire her for putting into practice what I dream about.

She's quite an artist and maintains a store at Etsy. Not long ago I saw two things I wanted. I bought a set of journal pages that were from Daly's Department Store in Eureka...they've been closed for years and years and the financial sheets are from 1927-34! The copperplate writing is so precise. All hand written with a fountain pen. The other was a Pyramid Bag is perfect for putting smaller items in my cosmetic bag when I travel.
Thanks Jen, I'm proud to have a JK Duncan original!

Aww! Look how sweet you are! Thanks for the shout out Brenda. You're a pal. I keep coming in there in my mind, but with the kids full time again...well; I guess it's a good thing I already have 'some' fabric in house ;-) Hope all is well.

What a lovely little bag! I can see some happy girls swinging that around! Just the right thing to keep some lipsticks in!

Got your package on Saturday. Thanks! I can hardly wait to play with all of it. Right now I'm busy working on quilt show prep. Want to come again this year?? We'll have a TRUE ARTIST as our featured quilter this year.
