Creativity check and finished projects, almost summer 2021

Sewing-wise, I finished what may be my most-involved non-apparel sewing project: a quilted tote for my mom for mother's day. Last time they visited, she brought along some fabric and mentioned that if I wanted to sew a tote for her at some point, I could use it.
