Check out these 3 tapestry bags that my Mom made! They are tote bag style. They remind me of the carpetbags in the era after the Civil war. We listed them on etsy.

The bag with birds is a tote style as well, Mom took my birdie panel and made it into a canvas bag.
The second one is my design of a "Bucket Bag", shaped like a bucket.

Bucket of Flowers!
Hand painted flowers with machine freehand stitching, then stipple quilted.

And of course... Still a lot of playing going on! Annie is lovin' life with playmates now and they always want the same toy or stick or ball or chew bone!! Sharing is the funnest way to play!

Love the new things your doing with your craft art work.
Totes are great for such a variety of things. Your mom's remind me of ones my grandma and her friends had with them all the time. And full!

Love how all the "kids" are getting along, playing together, you can see there having so much fun. Annie looks great now too!
Blessings always Nancy
