Killing Time!

I posted this picture that my friend, Joan, painted on fabric awhile back.  She finished the painting and I asked for the piece of painted fabric back.  I told her I had an idea for it!  

This is or was Joan's finished piece.  I printed out a flower outline on fabric, from a copyright free web site.  Joan knows what kind of flower it is...I'm not!  Joan paints using watercolor and does some amazing work. This was the first time she used acrylics and painted on fabric!  check out the shading!!  Just beautiful!

 I had some time to kill today before getting ready for our exhibit opening  so I made a snap bag for Joan!
Front of the snap bag

Obviously this is the back!

I know Joan doesn't check out my blog so it should be a surprise for her!  Not sure when I'll see her next but it should be within the next week or two.  Now to hope she can use it to store something in.  It measures 8 1/2" x 9 1/2".

So now to take Kalee for her 2nd walk since I won't be able to walk her later!  And then to get ready to meet up with the ladies in our fiber group for dinner and then on to the opening!!
