a quilted tote and my brand new pigtails
Not that I really need another bag, but this one's purty cute. I was at Purl Patchwork on Friday evening to pick up something for my mom and I figured I just better take a lookie around in case something caught my eye. Which, of course, it did. They had this cool japanese abstract print in many colors, but I couldn't resist the orange.
This a wee little tote—just 12 inches square, more purse than tote. I used some cotton batting left over from the Charlie quilt, so it's just a little poofy. That gray I love, but it's a stretchy fabric which was all slippery and stretchy and wonky. That's always fun.
Inside is this cool Kaufman print I also got at Purl. Looks like tiny Pac-Man flowers. One gray pocket on the interior.
And here's me with my new tote. And since I was taking funky mirror self-portraits, I thought I'd show you my exciting news: my hair is long enough for pigtails!! I'm trying to grow my hair out even though I know full well that it looks better short. Short looks elegant, sculpted, sophisticated, groomed. I know this, but I still like it long. I'm a ponytail kind of gal. Meticulous grooming is overrated, in my opinion.
I hope y'all who have tomorrow off work think of us poor schmucks slaving away and feel really guilty. harumph.
