I am delighted to be part of Selfish Sewing Week and wrapping up the week of Featured Bloggers on the Indiesew blog.

It's been a doozy of a winter in New England, the worst one in the seven years I've been living here.  So when I started thinking about what the make for Selfish Sewing Week, my thoughts immediately turned to making something cheery and bright to kick me out of my blahhh-weather slump.  I think my Senna Tote  did the trick!     The fabric for this tote is courtesy of Art Gallery Fabrics, from the . . .
