In general I am a cheery and energetic person. But I am enshrouded in a cloak of iron. That cloak is the weight of greiving my son, whom I've lost to adoption.

Totes by Cheerio

I discovered something last year. I discovered that I love working with material. I've started finding ways to actually use this 'new' discovery. Last year I made over 3 dozen little Christmas pillows. They were black and green and red, with many different designs. The funny thing is that people didn't put them away after the holiday. This year I've been making reversible totes. I've been enjoying myself. I have no intentions of turning my blog into a sales pitch - however, I think I have plenty of time to make 4 or 5 extra totes before Christmas. So, if you'd like to order a Tote by Cheerio for yourself or as a gift for someone else, shoot me an e-mail. (cheerio2you@yahoo.com) Here are some pictures of ones I've done so far. I love this little holiday birdie print! It's whimsical, which totally matches my personality. Holiday Birdie and White with blue contrast stitching

Holiday Birdie and Red with white contrast stitching non-Christmas designs: Penguin print and Tan with black contrast stitching Purple Bats print and lavender with black contrast stitching (added closure loop and buttons) ---oops, had to take this one out, didn't want to spoil a surprise--- Elegant Red with Gold and Tan with red contrast stitching Crazy Cats and Tan with blue contrast stitching (or with red contrast stitching) Hot Peppers and Tan with green contrast stitching (or Red material with black contrast stitching) Reversible Totes by Cheerio would be custom made. With or without monogram. With or without button & loop closure. (I do not have an embroidery machine, so monogram is hand fed through regular sewing machine)

Finished product is about 13" tall by 16.5" wide No pressure, no problem, I hope you at least enjoyed the pics.
