Mama Needs a Brand New Purse

My old Practically Necessary purse is looking a little shabby so I looked through my stash box for something new. I found the assembled Johnny Appleseed purse front and back, a strap, and a loop all made (there's something to be said for half-finished projects!). All I needed to do was make the lining (from the Pentwater chintz), the inside pocket, and finish assembling the pieces. I had a small piece of the fabric cut out and used it to cover a button for the closure.

Mae took this picture of me with my new purse (this one is called "Oh Johnny"). She said it looked best with me off center with the kitchen in the background. I told her to go ahead, I trust her art direction!

School started today - hurray!

Happy back-to-school! Your new bag is great. I like the man planting seeds. A lot.

Thanks Blaize - A person planting seeds is a nice image isn't it? It's a good story to remember.
