Of Library Bags and Glasses

I have been busy today with the fusible web, whipping up a quick Library Bag for Michaela.  If I had more time I would have needle-turned the flowers, but we were only given a weeks notice that we needed one for Kindergarten.  I am planning on raw edge appliqueing, on the machine, around all the shapes.

These pictures don’t really do the fabrics justice – it is awfully grey around here.  Playing with different fabric combinations for each flower was lots of fun, and although I am not really a big fan of fusible applique, it can’t be beaten for speed.

In other news around here, Rory has just received his first pair of glasses.

This means four out of five of us in the Matching Pegs family now wear glasses.  I think they really suit him, and at least poor vision is a relatively easy thing to correct.  There are much worse things to pass onto your kids.

It is hard to see in this photo (thanks again to the winter light), but the outsides of the glasses frames are bright blue and the insides are bright green (like a light-sabre), so we have both of Rory’s favorite colours covered.

  1. Rory – the glasses look fabulous, believe me in my day there wasn’t much choice. These look really great – you’ll be the envy of all your mates.
    Claire, I love the library bag – flowers are so versatile and cute for these types of things – I too have been thinking library bags of late – may be at retreat?
    Cheers Jennifer

  2. I agree with jennifer, I have worn glasses since I was 5 years old and when I look at the photos of me I cringe.
    He looks very smart and will find being able to see clearly makes so much diference.
