    Just received my adopted RB FJN today! Third time's the charm for this cute bag as there were two previous owners. I put my own twist on it with a quickly made decorative zipper pull...not really needed, but I thought the spiral complimented the curved seams of the zippers.

      My mom is a retired elementary school teacher who spent her entire career focused on reading, so she ALWAYS has a big collection of library books when my three daughters come over. Two dozen or so picture books is a heavy load for any tote bag, and hers was definitely not up to the job. Between the SSB's perfect size, the padded handles, and the UV-ness, there was clearly only one thing to do.

        I've not really used my shop bags until last week when I was away. I was on retreat and planned to use my DLBP to carry a few things around the (large) monastery. But instead I flipped my shop bag inside out, put my travel mugs (1 for water and 1 for coffee) in the pockets, and inside, my back pillow, kindle, phone, and journal. Very light weight, walking all around. Worked better for this purpose than the DLBP.

          Steel/UV Swift arrived today! And it's as gorgeous as I'd hoped. Seen here with a yarn swift "crown."

          And I did change my mind about sending back the Dyneema Swift (of course!), so now have 5. Sure hope one of tomorrow's debut items isn't a non-black Dyneema Swift or I may well end up with 6.....

            Are these "extras" (non-book bags) in a rotation?

              Yep. They take turns with the DLBCs as my work bag. And I normally use one as my second travel bag.

                Look what arrived today - keeping me happy until debut tomorrow! French Blue/gray MCB and Nordic/solar SE! My pic doesn't do the colors justice, but both are beautiful. This is my first "French Blue" and I love it!Click image for larger version

                (I don't know why the MCB looks gray/cocoa, but it's FB/gray.)

                      Delighted with my new Island large Shop Bag

                      Today arrived the large Shop Bag in beautiful Island, made a quick test for fruit and veggies and beach towel and what can I say - the island LSB does it all ;)

                        I am LOVING every single picture I see of the new colors. Especially Island as it is exactly my favorite shade of blue.

                          Ok Pokilani, I will post a few more photos of NW sky and island combined with a few other colors in case that helps for comparative purposes. I got a bit of help during the process.
                          P.S. Some people wish they had a zest travel tray to match an orange back paw.

                          One thing that is really difficult to convey in photos is that NW sky has an almost magical sheen to it in certain lights in the same way that parapack does. I am very fond of it as well.

                              Thanks so much, @NWhikergal. Those colors together make my heart skip a beat.

                                What a great spread of cool colours. Now I would really like something like a cafe bag in Navy pp/NWS... oh, that would be heavenly.
