Many wonderful things this week, but I have to put this one first. Because.

I got my bag from Lanea today! I am just giddy.

A tiny, wonderful thing. It’s now living by my bedroom door, so I can pet it for a few days before I make it work.

Nice and neat and tidy. The interior material triggers some memory of being pre-teen, and just learning to sew, and thinking about fashion and clothes and the way they are made. And if you read “The Quilts of Gee’s Bend,” you will understand when I say that Lanea’s house smells like freshly pressed cotton.
