I finally finished the tote I made for my mom. I'm pleased with how it turned out, but I did not like sewing with linen. It's kinda slippy slidey.
I started making a pink patchwork stripe instead of just one print, but I just didn't like it.
I used six strands of embroidery floss to do a running stitch.
I wanted to get it done, because the kids and I are going to see her and her husband tomorrow for the day. She asked me to order these books on Amazon for her, so now she has a nice little bag to tote them. It's really for her to "tote" her music for playing the piano. Well....she can use it any way she wishes.
and on another note...
we went to Disney on Sunday.
*I'm still trying to figure out how to post pictures. I see that my landscape pictures are being cut off, but I don't want to post small pictures either. Any help?
*Thanks to Textile Fetish and my husband, I was able to figure out how to change the various widths of my blog.
