I did manage to make this tote bag. The block actually was made by Ann D. So all I did was the bag. (Does that make her a Block Head and me a Bag Lady?) It'll go to a silent auction for a women's transitional housing project. I followed a pattern (sort of) but wish I had altered it. The handles are too short, in my opinion. But the bag is long, so longer handles would make it drag on the floor, unless you're tall like me. The pattern wasn't quilted, but I added batting and quilted it. I love quilted bags! If I do another one, I'll alter the proportions. I'm thinking of getting a couple pretty buttons and sew them on where the handles are attached. Don't you think that would look nice?
Oh, today is so pretty! The sun is shining, and our high temp was 81. Nice day to stay home and recover from blecchhhy sickness. I sat on the deck reading for a while. The sun felt so great.
Now I'm back from the blahs, my yucks are gone, I feel great, I want to sew, and after 4 more work days, I'll be on spring break so I CAN sew. Yippeeee!

It was beautiful and sunny today. Slowly but surely our giant snow piles are melting. Hooray!

My mail box hasn't been nearly buried like this in many years. I actually like to see this much snow all over. It's so beautiful.
This snowy bush is in my front yard.
Today I shoveled a bit, until my back hurt too much. Then I walked a bit through my neighborhood and took pictures, until my camera battery died. I also did some sewing today.. made some blocks for a Lotto I'm in. I didn't feel particularly inspired and am not thrilled with my blocks, but I guess they'll do. I made the cute snowman to give the Lotto "owner."
Have a great weekend, everyone.
