Tax season seems to take more out of me each year. The older I get the more exhausted I feel when it is over. I think I need more vitamin C!
I managed to get the totes finished. I made four totes in all. Two of each of these totes:
They actually look better in person. I sewed the circles on the tote and added petals off a silk daisy plant and a button in the center. The tote is made of brown duckcloth, with rick rack at the top. Joann's didn't have much of the pink cotton webbing. Only enough for two. I bought some white thinking I would dye it, but got impatient and just used it the way it was.
There is a problem with these four totes! My husband pointed out I have never been into a grocery store and come out with only four bags. So True! I purchased some more duckcloth to make more. I think I will make these a little larger. These will hold quite a bit though and I don't like over stuffed bags, so I wait and see how I feel in a little bit. A Kroger employee seemed to think they were cute when I stopped by there for a few items.
Son #2 (Brandon) and his girlfriend visited this past weekend. Julie and I made a little gift to give her student teacher "teacher". She will be graduating in May with her Masters in Education and will teach next fall.
Again I wish I could have taken a better picture. The colors are off. I think it turned out great - I hope the teacher likes it. While we were at it, I made one similar to hers. I think I will take this to the office. I have no idea what the white spots are on the letter F.
Time for me to go to bed! Be back soon!
