The End of Summer!!

This bag is my last tribute to a beautiful summer.  Rejuvenated and armed with tan, I feel I can face the cold winter ( for some of us at least!).

Read the poem,  enjoy the post, and be merry!!!

Indian Summer by Henry Van Dyke
A soft veil dims the tender skies,
And half conceals from pensive eyes
The bronzing tokens of the fall;
A calmness broods upon the hills,
And summer's parting dream distills
A charm of silence over all.

The stacks of corn, in brown array,
Stand waiting through the placid day,
Like tattered wigwams on the plain;
The tribes that find a shelter there
Are phantom peoples, forms of air,
And ghosts of vanished joy and pain.

At evening when the crimson crest
Of sunset passes down the West,
I hear the whispering host returning;
On far-off fields, by elm and oak,
I see the lights, I smell the smoke,--
The Camp-fires of the Past are burning.

Still, I would would love your input about my last bag for the Summer 2010.



  1. Great bag, as usual, Samya! I love that fabric and the embellishments you added. You have a great eye!



    P.S. I am ignoring the fact that summer is ending because I don't want it to!!!! :o)

  2. Another beauty!!! Come over here, then you'll have summer all year round. I wouldn't mind a spot of winter......

  9. Hi Samya, thank you for visiting my blog.
    I was very pleased.
    Now I come here and see such a great bag- hats off!
    The poem is very impressive and characteristic for autumn. Unfortunately our summer was very short. So I hope for some sunny and warm days to come.
