I know this is selfish but, I was really hoping for a little snow last Sunday. I parked my machine by a big window and was planning to sew and watch it snow all day.
Well, I did sew all day but there was no snow out my window. I put borders on two small quilts I had been working on. Then I started this flannel tote bag (pending straps) and made this wallet from our new cork fabric.
