      Oh I have quite the contrast pictures to these: Taken today as FINALY some SNOW was ready to meet with the freezing cold weather we had the last week or so:

        Sending the sun your way, @Ilkyway. I took this while carrying my Steel/Iberian SCB. My Nordic WF was in the car.

          Whee! One of my TB orders arrived here today. Not the big bag order, but the smaller bags, yes :)

          The Steel Dyneema is darker/blacker than I expected for some reason, was thinking greyer than it is in real life. Still, it works for contrast purposes with the Zest interior of the big bag when it finally gets here :) The Olive of the 3D Fabric Organiser Cube is very olive and reminds me of my time in the military.

          And cheers for the postcard art :)

            I like using the PP as a work ID pouch. And when I need to run down and grab food, I stick my ATM card in the PP and am good to go. So i decided to make a lanyard for it with an O-ring before spending the rest of my weekend on work. Plastic lace makes me very nostalgic for my childhood! This colour scheme should sorta match most of my PPs.

              We recently bought our kids bikes and we've been taking them to different parks for bike rides. The small Steel shop bag has been very handy for carting drink bottles on the run. During school term, it doubles as my overflow bag for work files and a lunch bag. Love this bag!

                Recent arrivals, uncertain if this is 'azure' or some other variant of teal/turquoise/kingfisher blue-greens :) It's the large clear organiser pouch teamed up with a wasabi double-carabiner and an iberian medium yarn stuff sack to a TB handle loop.

                The picture explains what's what. It's a *very* snug fit and zipping the pouch requires care.

                  @Kshni, that large clear organizer pouch is indeed Azure. It's difficult to photograph well, and tends to look more like turquoise on the product page photos. Here's another example of an Azure 3D Clear Organizer Cube that was the subject of @ladyinblack's Color question--on the blog today thread:



                  Take a look at @Ilkyway's All my blues including azure thread if you want to see some more pictures of this color, which is hard to photograph accurately.

                    So this turned up at the post office today. With this it seems that my collection of single colour 200D SEs is complete (Wasabi, Solar, Steel). I'm pretty sad that Steel appears to be going away. (1" strap was DIY... and so is the charm!)

                      Sorry to do this, but I can't resist comparing this scenic vista to the scene in Star Wars when Obi-Wan and Luke approach the spaceport:

                        If someone has already posted a photo of this, I apologize for the duplication. When I stopped by the store recently, I got a kick out of the hours posted on the door, which harkens back to their original hours sign referenced in the remodel blog. The remodel looks fantastic!

                          I think you're the first person to have noticed that. :) I'm glad you like the remodel! I think one of my favorite things so far has been seeing how many people use the bin of Legos. It's fun to see what people build.

                          On our to-do list is setting up the coffee/tea area, so maybe next time you come by you'll be able to enjoy a nice warm cup of something should you be so inclined. Side note: I've figured out a gluten-free, vegan, and nut-free cookie recipe that's actually good. I know that might sound impossible, but I've shared these cookies with non-vegan gluten-loving friends who routinely tease me about my vegan/gluten-freeness and even they agree they're good!

                          (For those who don't know what I'm talking about: we want to offer home baked cookies and bars from time-to-time in the showroom, and learned thanks to giantsteve that recipes w/nuts wouldn't be a good option, so we've been working on alternatives.)
                          Have a question? @Darcy (to make sure I see it)

                            marytattoo thought that TB should represent at the East Coast's biggest snowstorm in years, so by special request I give you... Zest & Island, surveying the wake of #Snowzilla!! (We couldn't really go anywhere during the blizzard, so there wasn't much call to pack up any of my Bihn bags... ;P)

                              Oh thank you for showing how bright the Island and Zest can look. I'm now even more excited for the arrival of my Zest and Island bags from my sister (who was also caught up in Snowzilla 2016, but safe and warm).
                              I love my Burnt Orange Medium Cafe Bag, Black MCB, and Azure LCB.

                                List of contents clockwise from water bottle:

                                Klean Kanteen 27 oz, markers, hand lotion, coloring book, Midori Passport Notebook, Knitting notion tin, mini sock DPN roll, Traveler Tray with shawl and 2 skeins of yarn + pattern, another notion tin, small book, pencil pouch, Q-kit with tape measure and needle kit, On bag flap- small multi-tool, keys, Gauge tool, tiny scissors, medium size hardback book, Tool/Pen wrap, knitting pattern book, white travel watercolors, stuff sack with pair of socks in progress, Small Double Organizer Pouch with ID, money, medium notebook.

                                The tool/pen wrap has a Lamy Logo, Pentel Graphite pencil, and a Pilot Prera in it. The Lamy Logo fits nicely as does the pencil. Anything fatter gets awkward. I tried a Lamy Safari in it and the cap doesn't want to slip in and when you remove the pen the cap comes off. So, this wrap is better suited for slim pens, and other tools as others have reported.

                                The light wasn't ideal today, but the first two pictures are pretty representative of the color of the bag, though it can appear brighter, and deeper depending on the light. It's a beautiful color.

                                I wouldn't normally pack my bag to such a bloated level unless I was going somewhere where I'd be stationary rather than walking around, but it has a large capacity and I like how the back pocket keeps books/notebooks safe. That was a feature sorely lacking on the Swift, and now I can be hands free which was my #1 beef. (Still love my swift, just not built for shoulder bags.) I haven't optimally configured the bag, or assigned permanent homes for anything yet, still need to test drive and see what makes sense. :D
