Bag Lady and One More Cow
My wonderful neighbor is a caterer; she has a stall at an upscale "farmer's market" and every couple of weeks surprises us on a Saturday evening with a care package of some goodies that didn't sell. One night it was her salmon cakes and they were so good that we now have a nearly weekly trip to the market to buy them. She's a lovely gal who is known as "Blackberry's godmother," and has an explosion of curly red hair. When I saw this fabric, with some chefs that resemble her, I had to make her a bag.
I decided to improvise some prairie points on these bags, after a commenter on my last post mentioned them, and I like their look. The butterflies are for the teacher and the tribal ladies (please click to see how gorgeous they are) are for the knitter.
And I cut out another bag last night!
Annemiek in The Netherlands make this gorgeous gal, complete with identifying ear button. And look at the little bitty purse she made!
I know that there are a few people I'm still indebted to, ladies who have sent me cows in exchange for something on my end. Taking care of my end of this deal is high on my list for this week, and I thank you for your patience.
