    beautiful bag, and you made it for pennies on the cost of a store made one.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    This will be a great project for my quilt guild - I have the program in August and I can just see it! Or maybe for our retreat in October!
