Tote Bag Finish

I know I've only been home for less than 24 hours but when I sat down to watch tv last night I decided that this tote bag HAD to be completed....well, the sandman had other ideas for this weary traveler. So, this morning when my stupid cell phone alarm went off at 6am and woke me up, I got out of bed and came downstairs and finished the edging on it. I LOVE the bag and fabric and I'm thrilled with how it came out but I still think there HAD to be a better way of putting the piping/binding around the edges.

I may have posted about this bag earlier in the summer before I put the binding on but NOW it's totally done!!!

I have a hair appointment with my favorite stylist today for a cut and color before she relocates to Maryland. I will miss her a lot but she's happy to be starting a new phase of her life and although she's leaving NJ I will still see her a lot.....my loss is Tim & Maryland's gain :) Here's Jen with the boy that's taking her home with him on Sunday......
Good luck at Brocatos Hair Salon!!!
Love, Mom....
