Finding Colour

in an otherwise grey and rainy day:

watercolours mixing, swishing, dropping, spotting
a colourful lunch of homemade guacamole, bean and carrot sticks, and corn in steamed and chip variety

Accompanying my brother to the hardware store only to hang around the colour swatches for an awfully long time - A worker asked me (as I plucked colours of fancy off the walls) what I was thinking of painting; I said a LOT of walls... and now I am thinking they would make brilliant mosaics

Sorting and folding my box of blue fabric for the "blue quilt" which is still at the dreaming stage

And finally I decided at long last to make myself a laptop bag - or should I say to make my laptop a bag. I saved up and bought my very own computer a couple of weeks back; and though I adore PC's to bits (mostly for gaming purposes) I am smitten with my white apple - though it definitely needed some colour of its own!

I worked on a basic tote bag design but included some thick wool wadding, a shoulder strap and went over all the straps a few times just to make it sturdy. I was feeling a bit rusty on the sewing machine and realised I hadn't used it since December 23rd!

I've made the bag so you can carry it like so:

Or over your shoulder:
It still needs a button or two to fasten the top and its probably a little too thin for heavy duty travel but for a cosy colourful pouch to house my little apple while I'm off working or walking or dancing - I think it'll do just fine.
