Don't panic.

Jodie (www.vintagericrac.blogspot.com) gave me permission to borrow this expression from her eye chart. Don't you love it? I'm thinking of making another one in eye chart format, but this one is for my youngest nephew's birthday next month. He'll be fourteen, and when his mother says, "Benjamin, what happened to your room?" he can point to his dragon wall hanging. Please observe that I stepped way out of my comfort zone with these fabrics, and made something I thought a fourteen year old would like. Special thanks to Lady Hopwood for her good advice. I did make both bags and liked them both so much that I gave both of them to my mother-in-law for her birthday.
She liked them, too!

I hope you have a good week.

I love the saying - I may need to make these for colleagues!

As for the bags, you have a very lucky mother in law :-)

The fiery fabric is wonderful, it really will suit a boy.
That is a great little saying.

I think both bags are pretty and I'm sure your mother in law will enjoy using them....Ginny

How on Earth do you find the time to make all these amazing creations, keep the blog percolating, and keep three hungry guys from going hunger-berserk with all the good things that I know come out of your kitchen ? ? ? I think the next wall hanging you make should be one just for you (like my mom had inside a cupboard door) that could say something like : "Watch Out, Wonder Woman at Work !"

Very clever saying and wall hanging, Diana. Good advice for a 14 year old. I love the bags. You are so talented with your craft.
