Saturday Mother and I met for breakfast and then visited a couple of quilt shops. I came away with one fat quarter. I think it caught my eye both for the color and because it had line drawings of women down the columns. See it closer here [or click to enlarge picture]. I knew I wanted to make it into a drawstring bag and having the extra day gave me just enough time to do it.
As I was working on it, I realized that I must have been heavily influenced throughout by all the reading I've been doing lately about Tasha Tudor. I've always loved her books and illustrations.
You may already know that Tasha, who died at 92 years old late last month, lived as though it was the 19th century and not the 21st.
I'm still not sure how I feel about it. In fact, after reading about the recent death of Bozo the Clown, I've taken to calling it Bozo sometimes instead of Jojo!
That's a LOT of color all at once. I may be knitting a clown shawl!
