Dancing through more projects! AND a give away!!!!

I have been able to finish a couple of projects in the last few days......
The first is the striped "Shellseeker" pullover. (below)
I finished the knitting, and working in the loose ends and even make a tag on light blue suede which has size and laundry instructions!

Then, excited about making some tote bags from vintage looking floral fabric, I was not falling asleep, so I got up and did a journal page. Something about writing down what is on my mind gives me a bit of closure and peace!

This morning, I finished the tote bags which I had journaled about. Now I made two, simply because there was enough of the fabric and I didn't want it lying around unused! The finishing touch is the deep pink button closure on the pocket. Those buttons were in Mom's button chest, so they are truly least 30 and maybe 50 or 60 years old!

I am offering the "spare" tote bag as a give away. Just leave a comment by June 15th and I will draw a winner! [You could be the winner!]

One other thing on my mind that night was that my wonderful granddaughter, Lilia had been in a dance recital in Georgia. For the second year in a row, I wasn't there. Not only that, I had not even called to hear her account of the event! And of course, the middle of the night is not the best time to correct that oversight!
Here is a fuzzy photo....of Lilia and Laura outside the evening of her recital. [the photo was clear only in a tiny version! I still have miles to go on learning this new computer and trying out Pixelmater!]

Don't forget to leave a comment if you would like a large lovely tote bag for yourself, or to give away to a friend! They are great for carrying and storing knitting and other projects...!

June 15th is here!!!!L
Ready to draw from,the names of my commenting friends. Two left comments on Facebook, as they didn't know about coming to this blog.....drum roll!......

Here is the poppy bag with slips of paper holding names......

Granddaughter, Lilia, in her pj's, draws out the name.....Sarah!!!
Sarah, please send me your mailing address and I will send this to you soon!
Thanks to all of you who left me a comment!

Oh that bag is too too cute - lucky winner. I love drawings, even when I don't win - I love to see who wins anyway.
