Black and Lime Green

(Disclamer...I wrote this post before I went to Paducah and am just having it posted today....sure don't want you to forget me while I am off having fun at the quilt show.)
On a whim I purchased a yard of these three fabrics on Saturday two weeks ago when I was in JoAnns.  The lime green really caught my eye and found two blacks I liked with it.  I am thinking of making another bag/purse with these.

I liked using the cording so much on the black and wine colored bag that I think I will use the lime as corded trim and maybe other spots of color on the outside then use it for the lining of the bag too.  I have not settled on what kind of bag to make yet but am toying with the idea of having one with a flap like the messenger bag I made - you can see it in this September 18, 2008 post.  I will be making it smaller than that bag though.

I have so many bags that I really like that I change more often now.  I had changed bags and gone to town last week to get groceries and when I went to check out I didn't have my check book so ended up using my cash instead.  The next day I was looking in the zippered pockets and found the checkbook.  I had forgotten which pocket I put it in.  I guess zippered pockets are OK if you remember what you put in them because sometimes it is out of sight out of mind for me!

This is my first visit to your blog! I think it is sweet that you are keeping us entertained while you brave the floodwaters in Paducah. I like these 3 prints together, and I am in love with the black and white on the left -- distinctive! Sure hope you show us your bag when it is completed.
