A Treasured Tote Bag
This beautiful bag was made by My Mom about 40 years ago. She was mainly self-taught, but went for a class or two. This was the first class she took--The Folded Star. When I first saw it I was amazed at the work that went into it and thought at that time-- I will never be able to do anything like that. I regret that I didn't learn then but I was truly intiminated by her work. I was raising 5 kids then and really didn't have the time. Now that I am a quilter I appreciate and treasure what she did even more.. One of these days I will show you the quilt she made for my bed, I have to redo the binding as it is wearing out, but the rest is still in fine shape. I will fix it up and one day it will go to Katie as she is the only girl of my 10 Grandchildren. Nana T would have gotten quite a kick out of Katie. My Mom was a strong believer in re-incarnation and the story of Bridie Murphy. Who knows she may have come back thru Katie!!!!!!!!!
