|I did add eyes to the turtle after the pix were taken.|
The tote was alot of fun to make! I FMQd a bit and am pleased with the final product.

I also made a little bag for cards- I should have put a closure on it but it was late Sunday when I started and didn't have any velcro.
I was late getting to the post office on Saturday and had to mail it on monday, but Mary received it on Wednesday so it didnt take very long!
I scheduled myself off work on Thursday and forgot that I had scheduled a breakfast outing Thursday morning. OOPS! I went in at 7:30 took the residents to breakfast and left work at 10:30am. When I arrived home there was a brown paper package in my mail box! When I opened it- there was another brown paper package and it was tied up with string (truly one of my favorite things) Inside was a personalized canvas- made just for me! With my name on it even! (Growing up with a "boy's name" sometimes makes it difficult to find it spelled correctly) Thank you sew sew much Amanda- I love it! be sure to check out Amanda's Etsy shop - lotsa cool stuff over there!
