This Amy Butler Birdie Sling Tote is a donation to the Reach for a Cure Wine Tasting and Silent Auction, benefitting the Muscular Dystrophy Associations efforts to cure Friedreich's Ataxia, the neuromuscular disease that Hannah has.
If you can't tell, it's one honkin' (yes, that's a technical term) bag. It's fully lined with interfacing and with fusible fleece on the green lining. The inside features a large and small pocket.
If you'd like to donate something to the event, let me know and we can talk it out. I think the deadline is sometime middle to late March. I'll have to double check that.
Next up are a baby blanket and burp cloths for a friend. Then, maybe the den curtains. ;-)

Whew.....finally they are done. Never, ever, again will I do that much bias binding. I bought one of the little bias binding makers and used Steam-2-Steam to iron it on. I thought that it would save time and that I would do a neater job. It may have turned out a bit neater, but I think it cost me a lot of time. Anyway, they are done and I'm not going to gripe about them anymore.....maybe.
I think I'll take a quick break from curtains, though, and make Amy Butler's Birdie Sling Tote for a silent auction to benefit the Seek-A-Miracle campaign which raises money through the MDA for FA research. Here is the link for the Reach for a Cure Silent Auction and Wine Tasting Event. If you'd like to contribute something to the silent auction, let me know. I think the deadline is sometime in March for having the item completed. The donation is tax deductible, too.

Another way to help the Haiti earthquake victims. Make something and donate or purchase from Craft Hope's etsy shop donating all the money to Doctors Without Borders. I wish I had time to make something, but instead I've money donated to Unicef.
