fruit bags and a little fruit
We went to the farmer's market this morning, and it was freezing! We ended up buying most of what we did from the vendors on the sunny side of the building because the shade was unbearable. We're big on veggies around here, but not fruit so much. Can you guess what's on the menu? Ceviche and salsa to take to tomorrow's Easter meals. And the potatoes looked to yummy to pass up.I made my first (and second) tote bag today. I thought the Martha Stewart dish towel idea from Write, mama. Write. was so cute and the perfect birthday gifts for two coworkers, both English as a second language teachers like me. Mama has taken down the tutorial to make some changes, so I did it based on memory, but her oil cloth bag looks similar and is also very fun looking. Because you're using the dish towel whole, the side with the picture ends up upside down, but doesn't that make it more interesting?OK. Here's the part you really want to read. It seems that I haven't heard much from readers lately, and I really love reading comments. So, I've decided to offer a Kayla-made dish towel tote bag to one of you. I'll check this post Wednesday or so and randomly choose one name from the comments. How does that sound? I've got plenty of the fruit and botanical towels, so I'll let you choose. Alright, who's going to accept my bribe?
