Birthday Gift for Mom

This is the gift I made for my Mom. (I have ironed this bag although it appears to have never been touched by such an implement.) It's one of those give away bags that we seem to get so many of and never seem to use. So I dyed it black and made the "stained glass" cut back applique with more of the fabric from Vicki (thanks again!). I have a second one started but didn't have time to finish it. It is done in the same pattern but with the colors opposite to this. It will be for my mother-in-law's birthday.
Here's a close up of the applique. I really like how Vicki's hand dyed fabric makes it look like glass. We are having company all this coming week and then my sister is here for the month of July. I hope to get some fiber work done but we'll see how I do this summer. Last summer I did very little.
