February Tote

I thought rather than edit my post I would just do a new one. (Really it is because I am trying to use the ipad and thought this was simpler) Here's my bag which had a lovely day out yesterday at the Girl's Stitch In run by the Quilter's Angel in Highfields ( Toowoomba). As you can see in the photo it is still raining here. I am trying hard to send some to Chookyblue. Off now to draw out my pincushion - I think I might have to make two as someone has already expressed interst in one and I do want one for myself.
