Because...

....a girl can never have too many tote bags.

And because I decided that it needed a little "bling", I added some hot fix crystals. The picture doesn't do them justice. They really do sparkle quite nicely.

After being knocked out flat with the crud last week, I finally managed to get the Go in Peace banner quilted. It has been delivered to the church and will be hung shortly, I hope. Once it's hung I'll take a picture.

Meanwhile, my lilacs are blooming and my patch of columbine has doubled. Spring has most definitely sprung.




I'm hoping to get some serious quilting time this weekend. We won't be going anywhere and the Bearded One is now suffering with the crud so I KNOW he won't be doing anything. For once the weather in the PNW is actually cooperating too. Which most likely means that NEXT weekend, when we are supposed to go camping, it will probably rain. Such is life in the PNW.

What a lovely tote. I'm pretty sure it doesn't want to live in the PNW. I think it wants to live in the SE. I mean, I'm just trying to get an angle on it for myself is all really. I know. I'm bad. What can I say? This one is really hip!

The flowers are so beautiful. Nothing like that happening in the SE. We've been getting rained on. Buckets of it. Not that I mind but I have a fear this will be it until the end of summer or early-mid September when the Hurricanes kick up.

Dern Luck!

(ps: Hope the B.O. starts to feel better and dont' forget, you're going kinda long in between without photos of the Spotted One. Just mentioning... )

LOVE the tote bag, Liz! I think it'd be far happier living here in OKC than either the PNW or SE! hehehe! I'm also trying to make a new bag this weekend, note "trying." Too much ripping going on here for "just" a tote bag! Is yours done using a pattern? If so, I'd love to know which one? Glad you're feeling better girlfriend!
