My little helper, and Cathy's Quilted Tote

Today while I mowed the lawn, I remembered to take the camera along.  A couple years ago we found this toy lawn mower at the second-hand store, and the kids have always loved it.
And it adds some interest to lawn-mowing, to see this cute little guy running along beside me!  =)

Today I made a quilted tote for Cathy, she picked pinks and greens.  What do you think?  If you want me to try something different, just say so, because Breanna says she'd take it if you don't.  =)

The lining.
Today I made a list of everything I need to get done, because there seems to be a lot.  But these little projects are really fun.  Summer has been very busy, and I'm not sure I will get as much sewing done in the next few months!  Breanna's last day of school is next Tuesday, and we are all excited.

Ahhhhhhhhh summer. It's but a distant memory for us Southerners but I dont begrudge you a shot at some sunshine.

Have you ever noticed it's the cheap toys kids love the best -for all the bells annd whistles of technological toys kids come back to the old tried and true toys they can use their imaginations to play with !

Beautiful tote! I just made up a list of 10 things and they consisted of summer projects. I don't usually craft much in the summer, but I'm going to try this summer to keep the mojo flowing!

I really love these totes that you make! This one is especially beautiful. I don't blame Breanna for wanting to steal it ;) So glad we can connect on here!

It's beautiful Lisa. I can't wait to use it. Speaking of that I should email you my address :) Thank Breanna again for drawing my name.
