Stop Right There, Janice!

Sorry...had to give my Aunt one more warning...I'm posting a picture of her Christmas gift, and I don't want her to peek! So, here it is!It's the "Pick A Pocket" tote bag that was in Quilts & More, and designed by the fabulous Monica. When I was back in Idaho, I took my Aunt to the quilt shop to help her pick out the fabrics. She had a hard time doing it herself--I think she went to the shop like 3 or 4 times. They must've thought she was a stalker. So, those are the fabrics we picked out. Its Amy Butler and Freespirit fabric. She wanted it to be 'stiff', so I added some buckram. Let me tell you, that was an adventure! I think I broke 3 sewing needles. I didn't have any bigger needles, and the Jo-Ann's by my house is closing in February (they are moving just down the street) so they are running out of inventory and not ordering anymore! Aargh! Its like a twisted, sewing version of a "Got Milk?" commercial!
