Bird Bag

I'm not sure how long ago I started this bird purse. It is definitely a "slow cloth" project.. I keep re-discovering it and work on it a little bit and then it gets tucked away for future stitching. This time I think I will try to finish it up and actually make it into a bag.

 
It has been very hot here this week and Henry keeps trying to find new places to cool off. This one isn't working too well...his rear end is hanging off the bookshelf! 
Below are a few pages for my little journal. Still need lots of work, but having fun with the doodling. Tomorrow may have to be a beach day...way too hot to get much done in the house!

Love your bird bag Mary. It looks gorgeous. And your journalling is quirky and fun! Smiling at the sight of Henry lying on (and off) the book shelf :). I do feel for kitties in the heat. It is very hard for them to get cool with all that fur.
