    I had made a Amelie bag for my daughter and was trying to finish 2 beach bags to get them in the mail before I have knee replacement surgery monday and remembered my bank was changing from Wacovia to Wells Fargo so I also had to get in touch with those who use a bank draft for the monthly bills and instead of having a senior moment I had 2 days of it. I didn't have a pattern but wanted to put pockets in the bags like I have done dozens of times on other things and just had no clue .Everything that could go wrong did. I daughter must have heard the scream of frustration at her house 5 miles away. She came and helped and I got them in the mail today. The Bow Tucks is for my daughter here.

    Love your bags. Just made 2 beach bags also. One was smaller and one larger like yours. Aren't they fun to make? I love, love, love your material! That is a hoot! :-)

    I always have to chuckle when I see those beach ladies.
    Those are very cute bags. I don't know which one I like the best. The bow tucks is very special with the name on it like that.
    Here's hoping all goes well with your surgery. Now let us know as soon as you can how it came out.

    Thank you all for the good wishes. I like to think I am strong and above the fray but my body betrays me everytime. My irritable bowel is telling me I am worried, and my brain just left.
    I was once on a case from hell and the mom was looney tunes and I wanted so badly to tell her what she was doing to her child was a big mistake (she was a Dr. so one more neason to keep my mouth shut). Because I had to keep quite I lost my voice.

    I love the bow tuck bag. Great job personalizing it. I love the fruit ladies bags. That is the cutest fabric. Great job on all. Thanks for sharing.

    Love the bags. Fruit ladies have really gotten around in so many ways. I put them on towels. Take care of yourself and do as the doctor and therapist tell you. Don't rush.

    Aborable bags! Good luck with your surgery. Had my right knee done 2 years ago and it is doing great. Need the left one done now. Do your exercises and take all the pain meds they tell you to take.

    Good luck with the knee replacement. I had both of mine done at the same time several years ago. Wish I could have had it done years before. It is wonderful!

    Perfect bag for the beach. I just got some of this fabric for a quilt to remember this summer at the beach in San Diego with my little grandsons. Every time I see this fabric I have to laugh. Signed "Pineapple Lady"
