Poppets and Wheaties

Take your claws out, ladies.

A tote bag made from the remaining vestiges of the poppy and wheat tablecloth.

Seriously. I can't make more of these.

It is lovely. So delicate.

I turned it all inside out so that you get a good look at her pockets.
The tote is about 17" wide and 14" deep.

We martyrs here in Manitoba had summer already. It was about two weeks ago, and I spent mine in the back yard with my friend Karla, the neighbourhood children, and a picnic lunch.
It was wonderful.
Should summer ever come this way again, I imagine how perfect this tote would look slung over your shoulder as you make your way to picnics and parks.
All cynicism aside, please start your bids at $25- Cdn. Poppets and Wheaties (I had to get kind of creative on a name since last week's feeding, lying, cheating frenzy was called "Poppies and Wheat") will remain on the auction block until 9:30 pm, cst on thursday, May 13, 2010.

hey, if I had a roomful of poppies, I'd just make those! They seem to provide some entertainment, and a few rave reviews.
good luck, ladies.

I am in ONtario so what is the postage again? Also do you have paypal now, rather than sending a cheque?
