So I put everything else aside and laid out my squares. I decided to use a favorite charm pack, Olive's Flower Market by Lella Botique. I have been stashing this for a bit waiting for the perfect project and it certainly made me smile to pull it out!!! (and if you love this line, but can't find it anymore, Farmer's Daughter is a similar color scheme with yellow added ;)
I started stitching away and before I knew it, I had the tote made, the lining stitched and the handles sewn ready to all be assembled. And then of course, I had to break for lunch ;)
But as soon as I got home from taking the little one to Kindergarten, I was back to the sewing machine and finishing up my tote ;) And I just love it!!! And the best news of all, I had such a boost of motivation after this fast finish, I totally pulled out the fabrics from Thursday's post, and got them all cut out right!!! So ya, sometimes a fast finish is just what ya need!!!
