Miss Millie

tote bag with my Aunt Millie stitchery
I wanted to make May Britt's Stitchers' Angel bag tonight. I knew if I spent the night doing the stitchery, there wouldn't be time to make the bag. But wait! The Miss Millie piece that I finished the other night would work. I followed May's excellent instructions and now I have a place for Miss Millie and a new bag.

There's a great giveaway over at Polka Dot Pineapple. To welcome fall, Lettie is giving away a wonderful bag she calls Sunshine Posie Handbag. Just share your favorite holiday recipe in the comment area.

Jeanne, I love that bag!! It's fabulous. I've looked at the pattern and wondered if I could manage it -- but think I'll try putting the bag together after seeing yours!
