Spring Is...

A white wicker chair, and a new spring bag...

With a wonderful over-sized fabric-covered button...

I love it so much, I've already started another! Fabric: Verna by Kate Spain...pattern: "Mixed Bag to Quilt" by Nanette Merrill.
Happy almost spring!

i'm a much better quilt maker than i am a bag maker...so it's still sitting here.
thinking about bribing you to make it for me.

That bag is so gorgeous. Better keep a tight grip on it when you are out. I reckon there will be a lot of bag envy around.
