strap on, strap off

Blurry, abandoned, with unpicked thread remnants, this strap captures something of my mood – oh maybe I don’t feel THAT off, but a little off.
IMG_2091It was one of two attempts to hook something handle-like onto this pouch, which itself couldn’t decide whether to hang on the wall or fold up into something else.

IMG_9637But I can’t stitch on the button and call it done this morning. Must walk dog. Bathe super quick. And then head up to Salem, with the hope that I don’t get hammered by rain on the way home.

    Its hard to hold on to an agenda when you are caring for someone long term. Its always seems to devolve into what is needed in this moment. Maybe your beautiful little pouch can hold some of your sisterly hopes and frustrations. Good luck with the rain.
