New Tote

I've been on a sewing binge sense I returned from the Quilting Retreat. One of the things I've made is this really great tote called the Charm Party Tote. The pattern is by Penny Sturges and is a really nice tote that you make with a charm pack (pack of 5" squares).
This is the inside of the bag. It has pockets on both sides. The padded handles are real comfortable. The cute guy wearing Texas Longhorn Orange and holding the bag for me (windy day) is my favorite grandson.

I Won a Prize!

I Won a Prize! I received this wonderful stack of fabric goodness in the mail from Let Me Sew Love. I entered a drawing on her website and visited her online Etsy Store and I WON. It is 12 half yard pieces of fabric that came beautifully wrapped and look so pretty stacked together that I haven't been able to cut into them yet. I fondle them when I walk by and dream of what to make with them. I keep changing my mind. They are so pretty. It is a fabric from Paula Prass' new collection, Summer Soiree. I may fondle for another week and then the scissors come out.
