Finally, the bags have been delivered - 12 little totes for Miko - (they are roughly based on Rosalie Quinlans' pattern - Naomi's Little Carrybag) -
For the ruffles on the top - I used a 'ruffle' attachment on my machine. It sure makes gathering and ruffling so much easier. I highly recommend it - it even pleats for you as well and is completely adjustable.
I thought I would show you a couple of shots of my workroom (it got a bit of a cleanup and a lot of stuff went to the op shop). I have to share this room with the boy's tv - but at least during the daytime it is mine all day. It overlooks our backyard and has lots of natural light.

Now you know why I have a curtain to hide everything. It is so hard to keep fabric stashs tidy.
