Making a bag and a zippered pouch

I'm stuck inside for the third day in a row with wet snow stormy weather and it is getting annoying. If you know me, you know how I like to get out for my walks!
Anyway, I've been managing to keep busy. I stippled a piece of fabric for the back of the zippered bag that I'm making and cut a lining. Now, I just need to get out to get a zipper for it.

Tomorrow morning, I'm going for my lap swim with my friend Elise who is then coming for lunch. She is going to help me with the bag I started a while ago. Actually, she's going to put it together for me.
I stipple zig zagged around the tree and then straight stitched the rest with parallel lines.

I've laid out some reject pieces from another project and I'm piecing them together willy nilly to make an inside pocket. Might as well use the fabric and it won't be too closely scrutinized there.

Now, I'm going to make a cup of tea and watch another Downton Abbey episode.

This weather is incredibly tiresome, isn’t it? So hard when it goes days on end without sun. You are certainly make the most of your time indoors though! I love your bag in the making, especially the fabric you are using for the back!

We did get snow but not exactly blizzardy. I see you are back in the trees. :)

Love the tree for the bag. I like to work with trees too! Looking forward to seeing the finished project.
