I decided to take a break from teaching this semester to finish a book I started a long time ago. The decision to forfeit my salaried life means that I need to return to my student ways of making gifts instead of buying them. So here's a quilted patchwork bag I've made for my dear friend Fran's birthday.
The little sprig of plum blossom was clipped from the profusion of blossoms on the tree in the backyard. It's a lovely view from the kitchen window - feels as if life is full of promise.
