Big Blue Bag Of Bargains

Painting for storage
I am cleaning out the camera of projects completed but never posted.

Okay, the lazy blogger's way to get through the week. 

Just imagine they are fresh and new!

Remember the tacky Bahamas tote?

I picked out the embroidered words, but left the flowers.

Sprayed the entire outside of the tote with blue.

At this point I usually dry brush on an accent color and stick a plastic bag inside for a trash can.

However ...

I needed it to work as storage at the booth.

So I stuck in a bunch of bundles of fabric remnants.

Thus a big blue bargain bag of bundles.

Look for it - many a steal hiding inside!

Monday we took Scout for another blood test and exam.  A slight improvement in the red blood cell count though it is still not even in the lowest range of normal.  He returns Friday for a complete blood test to count both the red and the white blood cells.  He has also eaten some normal food.

Thanks to everyone who offered support for him.  Chucks and I appreciate it.

See y'all!
