Now Dick says he never saw anything like this before.

This tomato plant is taller than Dick. Just look at

This is the Market tote I sewed the same day at a class I took to make the no sew bag. In the morning
 I made the no sew and in afternoon I sewed this butterfly tote to  give to Kristin.
Mary Mahoney taught the no sew bag and Staycie Miller taught the  Market Tote.
It was a very good day of fun and learning new things.

heat wave.  98 degrees

It was a new experience for me and look how
great it turned out.
