About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

MY SECRET TOTE SWAP TOTE



PLEATED TOTE PATTERN BY ELLEN LUCKETT BAKER, WWW.THELONGTHREAD.COM



Secret Tote Bag Swap


MY SECRET PARTNER MADE IT EASY FOR ME TO SELECT PICTURES WITH HER MOSAIC ON OUR  FLICKER GROUP 
I must say the pattern was a bit confusing, but now I have made one,   if you have questions let me know, for example how to make the handles, also attaching the panels, it wasnt clear to me. 

I used POLKA DOTS FOR THE INSIDE FOR A FUN TWIST !!! This isnt a nuse in my front yard, its my swing....only way I thought to show you. 



MY PLEATS !! IT WORKS WITH THE FABRIC !!


THE FABRIC MAKES IT MOVE LIKE THE CHIME BEHIND IT.. 

THE FABRIC AND HANDLES ARE STABLIZED WITH FUSIBLE FLEECE. IT MAKES THE TOTE FEEL STURDY, I WILL USE THE FLEECE MORE OFTEN.
