    LOVE everything. Buttercup bag currently in progress in the workroom for me! I got really excited about Mame’s gorgeous tunics/dresses from recycled linens, and then I realized that the patterns are from Japanese books – which I”m not brave enough to attempt – but I am brave enough to try my OWN pattern!!!
