New fabric

Tuesday I took my True Friends Tote Bag to work.

One of my colleagues loved it and asked if i would make one for her friend.
This lady is struggling with ill health, she is at an emotional low.

Being the kind hearted lady I can be I emptied my bag and handed it over.

I said," Please give the bag to her if it will make her happy."
Well she would just accept my gift and rang around and asked some ladies at work for a price. She gave me some money for it, more than I ever expected. She wouldn't take no.

Now I didn't have the bag but I had some mone. So what option does a girl have other than head down to the local patchwork shop to purchase more fabric to make a new bag.

I love Riley Blakes sunshine range so I bought some and contrasting oranges along with some ric rac.

Now I am looking forward to the weekend and some time for prepping and sewing another bag.
