I’ve had to wait a little while to post about this little gem. This bag is a gift for my lovely sister-in-law’s birthday. And since she’s known to read this blog, I had to wait. But today she’s in town all the way from Maryland and we get to see her! Woohoo!

I bought this fabric a while back, before I’d learned the language of making bags, because of it’s great potential.Do you know how tricky it is to take a picture of yourself holding a bag?
So I resorted to having my not-quite-5-year-old give it a try. Not too bad.

Then he asked if I would take a picture of him with his Transformer walkie-talkies and put it on the ‘blob’ too.
How could I say no?

It is good to be back among the land of the living. Wednesday night I was struck down with whatever it was that my 2-year-old had. Bleh. Fortunately I did not throw-up on any quilts. Also fortunate was the fact that I had been to the grocery store, Costco, the library, picked-up my daughter’s new glasses and put away 7 loads of laundry within the 24-hours before I was consumed with feeling gross. (You know it’s really bad when even the thought of sewing or reading blogs doesn’t sound remotely appealing.) And the final fortunate thing: my lovely husband took the day off yesterday to run the show around here. I’m just glad for his sake that I could time my illness with the first day of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. (Thank you and you’re welcome, dear.)

    I love the bag too. I found a print very similar today, and after looking at your blog this morning, I&#39;m keen to let my creativity go wild and adapt your design. Thanks. I love your blog!
