I am Doris in N CA. Over time, this has become the "serious" blog.
Since the suicide of my son, I have become involved in suicide awareness and, yes, that creeps into the blog on a fairly regular basis.
This should be interesting - because as I am typing this, I only get the HTML stuff and not a picture but I've checked and there is a picture. So, anyway: I made this bag today using the instructions (but not the measurements) on this site for basic bag construction: www.morsbags.com and the tutorial for decorating a plain bag on this site: http://dutch-blue.blogspot.com/2007/08/calico-bag-makeover.html I added a bottom to the bag - I have this thing about bags with bottoms - and there are still small problems to be worked out but I might just make another one these.
