I just got the Avon Butler Bag in the mail today. I am pretty excited. Since I do not see a 165$ Butler Bag in my future, I thought I would try one for 20$. The inside is fantastic. You can see how much stuff I already have in it, and there is plenty of room for a book, an umbrella, water bottle and snacks. The outside of the bag...well, let's just say it screams "$19.99." El cheapo! I knew it was vinyl, but I did not realize how thin it would be. It looks like it would tear easily. Still, it was $20, and I really needed something to help me stay organized when I am getting the girls from place to place. This is a "mom bag;" if I were on a date with my husband, I would bring something else!
I saw a really cute autumn design in the September Gift of Stitching Magazine. It has pinkeep potential! There is also a nice article about Scottish samplers and two Scottish sampler patterns. I love Scottish Samplers! I drool over the ones in the Sacarlet Letter catalogue! Terrie, I will be by to pick up Agnes Scott soon, I hope!
