I don't tweet (yet, ?). But this was one of few photos I took today that I liked so here it is...It's just a scrap I use to start off my threads and practice free motion stitching.

This is my newest tote:

A Spring tote!

I attached a vintage crochet doily, that I got at the Country Living Fair this year, and some pink buttons. I think this would be a great project tote- nothing too heavy...Take along your knitting or crochet project, a book, something like that.
In the shop soon ; )

It's so hard to go outside to take photos with the snow past my ankles. Lighting isn't the best inside either, so these photos are not the best, but the best I can do for now.
It's one of the main reasons I mostly make small projects ; )
They fit inside my light box. Do not require too much fabric or materials, and are easy and light to ship...

How's the weather at your house?

RAIN and RAIN! We were suppose to get snow but then we didn't. Everyone was excited for nothing. Gotta love Portland Oregon.

I love all your work. You use great colors! Beautiful pictures too. Thanks for sharing. :)

I love doilies. I have a doily made into a frame. It was a craft purchase from a long time ago. Every time I see a doily I think of it.

Love that tote! It was sunny here today, but COLD!! I'm already dreaming about the summer!

Your photos look great, but I know what you mean about the lighting needing to be right in order to get that perfect shot! It's tough :)
