A Waywood piece of plastic

Dia Duit, a couple of years back, on a Quilting Bus Trip, I picked up a piece of plastic, suitable for bag making. It has been in my stash, lurking in the back of the cupboard.
Mother's Day, is coming up soon and my thoughts turned to my Mum. Mum has a deep love of her family, baking, knitting , gardening and keeping a house as neat as a pin. What does one give, to one has given so much over the years, for her family.
I always steer clear of slippery fabrics, such as chiffons, satins , plastics etc over the years have not had success with these fibers.
Dug out the cream webbing, rotary cut the tote pieces and had a great time stitching the pieces together. The tote went together like a dream.My machine behaved itself, maybe that has something to do with the Magic Genie in my bobbin case....grin..
I have been searching for some gardening gloves and hand tools....the decorative ones to no avail....being the impatient one.....DH took me to the local hardware store for the green set.

12 inch MIni Easter Swap

Dia Duit, how cute is my Easter Bunny Mini, that Lyn kindly made and sent to me with some choccies, which have been tucked away for Easter. Not sure, if you have found as I have, not much around in the way of Easter decorating for the house, which I have had a yen to do. I found the cute Easter sign, at the local supermarket.
