Charm Party Tote

I finally finished my Charm Party Tote a couple of days ago. You might remember that I showed the one I made for Thing One a couple of weeks ago. Mine is made with a packet of Allspice Tapestry charms. I definitely see more of this tote in my future. I do think that the next time I will add a magnetic snap closure and perhaps I will make it one row of squares longer. A Halloween one might be on the to do list soon if I can find a set of cute charm squares I like.

And, YIKES. I had to fill my gas tank yesterday. For the first time ever, I paid over $4. per gallon. I guess I should take the hint and just stay home and play with my stash.
I do have a lot of things to post about, but I'm short on time today. Hopefully I'll be able to check in a couple more times to share before the weekend (busy busy) gets here.

I love the Tote bag. I'm keen to make myself a bag and that looks reasonably easy to make - was it? I've already got some magnetic snaps so I'm half way there!

Yikes indeed! In the UK we're paying about £1.14 a litre of petrol, so that's about £4.50 a gallon I think, if I've worked it out correctly, and that's equivalent to about $8.80 (that's a lot of conversions, but I think it's about right).

I love your bag! Looks great! I'm with you on the gas.... I used to get miles per gallon...now I get gallons per mile...Sad, huh?
I love your blog by the way!

I have to say I'm happy to be living downtown right now with just the one car (and that sits in the garage for the most part).

I love the tote! I have the pattern and have been intending to make it. How long did it take you? I am imagining it is a weekend project. Boy, I wish I lived in your part of CT. I have been paying well over $4.00 per gallon for at least 2 months now. It really hurts the pocketbook.
