For my end of the swap with Lisa, I made her a tote bag.

I used Anna Maria Horner’s Drawing Room fabric and some brown linen from the stash.   The inside is lined in a pale pink linen and has a pocket, too.

I love adding personalized details to the gifts I make so I embroidered Lisa’s initials on the pocket and trimmed it with some ribbon I had on hand.  I think the ribbon came from Blair.  (Am I right, Blair?).  The tote is about the same size as the wool patchwork one I made for myself.

OK – that’s all I have for this Tuesday.  Fatty’s gone home, my parents are off to meet the newest family member who is being born today and the girls are at day camp.  I think I will knit – and maybe take a nap.  Sounds like a plan.
