dec 2: post 2 of 2; My Mamma: the seamstress

Boy, I tell you. My mom, is one talented
Mamacita when it comes to using the sewing machine.
She just sent me a package of new totes and aprons
that she created. Gotta love the OWLS!
Yea it'll be hard to let these go.
They are one of a kind beauties.
I am going to try to sell them at the open house
this weekend. If they don't sell, they'll be listed

and button enclosure.


flower tote, with leather flowers,
tweed, and cotton fabric, and large
button closure.

  1. Good luck with your open house. We have been doing one for 10 years - next week is number 11. Here is a no-fail appetizer recipe that is a favourite every year at our house. I mix up the cheese mixture a couple of days before and then scoop out the bread in the morning. When guest arrive, I put it together, pop it in the oven and it is ready in 10-15 mins.
