Let's face it, I am really bad at computer use. I finally got my links added, with a lot of help from my son, Daniel. Then I discovered that Connie W's blog has gone AWOL - Connie I miss your blog. Then I tried to add a new post, and here my photographs came out huge! I have no idea why. Anyway, this bag is for one of the nurses at work who is moving on to greener pastures. Her last day is Tuesday, and it took me a while to decide what to make for her. I had in mind something summer with pink and green, but another nurse assured me that she would prefer something dark. Okay, I can do that. I was going to braid the handles, but they were pretty lumpy, so I just stitched the three sections together flat, and I like the way it came out. There is a pocket on one side. I wimped out on the quilting and just used my tried and true diamond pattern. I hesitate to experiment when it's a gift for someone. Enough of this indoor activity, I'm going swimming! :>} It's 90 degrees today, and the pool water is 75. Not bad!
