I love cherries

My friend Cherry teaches at a local college, and wanted a bag to carry her supplies and books in.  So this is Cherry's bag.  (She also loves cherries, imagine that)  It is so happy and colorful, and I just love it!

dedicated to my grandma...

My grandma inspired in me my love of nature, music, antiques, and all things crafty.  Therefore, I dedicate my newest creation to her memory.  I just wasn't feeling very creative lately, and decided to just sit down and do some of the creative types of things that I used to do with her.  That means BY HAND.  Grandma never used a sewing machine, didn't even own one, but she made some of the most beautiful creations, and I'd really like to do more of posts will be a lot farther apart, most likely, LOL!  This buttery shade of yellow heavy cotton twill fabric was given to me by my good friend, Tonya, of Tonya's Sewing room.  Thanks again, Tonya!!
