Patchwork & linen tote bag and the peacock eggs...


I sewed up this tote in a storm last night.  It's a large size patchwork and linen tote bag.  Each patchwork squares are 5 x 5 inches (12.7 cm x 12.7 cm) in size.   The handles are made of cotton webbing.

This is how the other side of the patchwork squares arrangement looks like.  


Can you see the handmade tag on the side (red ribbon eraser-carved stamp)?   I love to add these small details to my handmade items!


The tote is reversible with a large linen pocket...  


By the way, do you remember my earlier post about the (wild) peacock visiting our backyard lately?  She's still here, making loud noises everyday...


And instead of just wandering around our backyard like she used to do, we noticed that she's been sitting in the bushy ivy area for the past few days like this...


And look what our girls found in the ivy bush!!  Five peacock eggs... Oh my!  She laid her eggs in our backyard!!  My jaws almost dropped when I first saw the eggs \*0*/


We're all excited about this news (especially our girls), however, we're also very worried about the safety of these eggs.  Because there are many natural enemies of peacock eggs out there, who visit our backyard regularly, such as cats, squirrels, racoons, skunks, possums, crows, and all sorts of birds...

We're just crossing our fingers that all of these precious eggs are protected from the enemies, and that eventually they are able to hatch out to be healthy peacock babies...

おーーのぉ!す、すごい、孔雀さん、ちっくちっくさんのお家が気に入ったんですね。卵産むのに安全な場所って思ったんでしょうか。楽しみでもあり、親の気持ちの様に心配もしてしまいますね。

カバン、今日も素敵です。めくったときの柄がまた、かわいいです。

gamzimamaさん、こんばんは!そうなんですよ、おいおい、孔雀!こんなところで卵産んでも大丈夫なのか?って、それはそれは心配なのよー。うちには暴れん坊の娘たちもいるしねえ…。

一応、明日、市のアニマルコントロールに電話して、どのようにしたら孔雀ベビーたちが安全にふ化?できるかの指示を仰ぎたいと思っていますが、どうなることか…。

Another beautiful bag!

I am crossing my fingers for those eggs to be safe. I love peacocks and I'm so jealous that you have one in your yard!

Thanks, Sam, for your comments, always :)

Re: the peacock eggs, unfortunately, we already lost one egg over the weekend... :(

We don't know what happened, but life of a peacock is sure a tough one out there...
