I've decided to close the post with the pix of my auto accident. Here's what I was doing the day it happened and where I'm trying to get back to: Nothing like a new season to inspire sewing. I've packed away the tweeds and dark, heavy fabrics and suddenly I'm all about sewing again! And, going back to Project Runway again, I decided to make this tote a bit over the top, with a huge rose and overscaled tied strap. Inspired by the couture look that Christian and Chris did. Not for everyday of course, but for a special occasion. In my mind it works. I stand by my work (lol!).
