My friend Shanlee asked for a bag in “fall colors” and I couldn’t think of anyone I’d rather sew something for. Shan and her husband Tom are part of my surrogate parent network in Phoenix — regularly inviting me over for dinner, checking in on me, etc. Also, how fun is that squid fabric? It is weird and bright and certainly “fall.”

To continue the Thanksgiving theme, this print pretty much sums up exactly what I am thankful for in life. Trees! Nice people! Music! Beverages!
