Finally using this piece.

Susie Wolfe is coming for a visit in less than two weeks.  Mostly she will be helping me in the barn by picking up where Cathy K. and I left off...  But as a fun diversion we will be make some elaborate, fabulous, outrageous tapestry totes...

I have two rattling around in my brain and one will be using this dresser scarf I have been hoarding forever..  It is too large to use on CQ but would make a perfect pocket on the back of a tote... I really want to start poking around in the bags of tapestries but need to stay focus to keep my other chores on track..

It is hard though once a idea starts fermenting... I had to venture into the barn this morning for another ribbon and was tempted to pull tapestries out... Whenever there is something too large for me to prune or pull out, I tie a big ribbon on it... Eventually the garden becomes so festooned with ribbons that even DH can fail to notice... and it's getting to that point now... Beats nagging and is effective....

Hey Gerry ..... I'm anxiously awaiting my "trek to the barn"! Have been thinking about the bags too and have yet to come up with my 'outrageous' idea. Your lady will indeed be perfect ... I'll ponder some more. Maybe my thinking hasn't been outrageous enough?!? SusieW

Maybe you should sell tickets to that barn of yours. It sounds as though it is full of treasures.
