Hey peeps—Hubby and I celebrated our 27th anniversary yesterday by driving to Steamboat and having dinner with friends. We are now at the cabin and daffodil season has begun! Squeeeee! They are so pretty. Looking forward to all the 13 flavors popping their heads out in the next few weeks. XOXO—Teresa๐Ÿฉท ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐ŸŒผ ๐Ÿ”️ ☀️ ❤️

One last photo from Iceland. This is the most photographed hill in the country and is apparently in Game of Thrones which I’ve never watched. Our trip went too fast, looking forward to visiting again! Have a great weekend! Teresa๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ”️๐ŸŒŠ☀️๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ธ


Hello there! I've been a bit MIA due to the fact that I was in Iceland last week with hubby and Big Girl. We had SO much fun and saw so much gorgeousness. We had 8 days jam packed with sites in Reykjavik, amazing waterfalls, ice caves, glaciers, national parks, a lava tube tour, mountain scapes and, of course, giving out bags. The Icelandic people are sooooo nice and wonderful, everyone we met was friendly and gracious. If you haven't been there, I highly recommend you add it to your bucket list. XOXO--Teresa

UPDATE: Arvada, CO Chapter

Bagette Terri has been very busy making bags this winter! Look at all these awesome bags she has made from such fun fabric prints! Way to sew Terri, keep up the great work! Teresa



Since the weather has been so icky on and off, I’ve been making a lot of bags.  I’ve been busy with baby blankets for church too. I have also made some larger bags to hold foam rollers for a class and the other bags hold receiving blankets and crib quilts for church.

Thanks for being such a great boss and doing this for all of us.

Holland Bagette Visit!

Chapter Coordinator of The Netherlands, Oost-Nederland, Bagette Ingeborg, came to visit Colorado with her husband, John, this past weekend. We had so much fun and lots of laughs. They had wanted to go on a hike and visit Red Rocks Amphitheater on Saturday but the weather did not cooperate AT ALL. We went shopping instead. On Sunday, Ingeborg and John set off on a motorhome adventure to several Colorado and Utah State Parks. I first met Ingeborg when I went to Germany for h+h in Cologne in 2019.

1) Who can resist a Holland couple photo in front of the Nederland, Colorado sign?

2) John took pics of us shopping at Joann.

3) Obligatory sewing studio photo.

4-7) Ingeborg and I made 2 extra large bags for their US shopping trips. The intention was to give them away after they were done with them but Ingeborg thought they turned out too cute for that and she would have to keep at least one. :)

8) Ingeborg and her stack of fabric (so far) on the left I gave her some organic from Harmony Art.

I’m a day late because Bagette Ingeborg and her husband are here visiting and got in yesterday. We had a crazy weather day and they were not able to go hiking so we went shopping instead. I took them to Joann, Trader Joe’s and Costco. Then, Ingeborg and I made a couple bags (of course) of which I’ll show you next week. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’š Have a fabulous weekend, I know I am! XOXO—Teresa

Workday Wednesday

I have a fun little tutorial for you today. I've been thinking about making a heated neck wrap/pillow for a while and finally did it. I used all Harmony Art Organic Design cotton sateen fabrics. I wanted to use organic as I would be heating it and putting it right on my achy neck. I used Eyes of the World green for the outside and Animal Farm in natural for the lining and the insert. I also used organic millet for the insert. I'm so pleased with how it turned out and the millet has a nice nutty smell when heated. Click on the photos to make them bigger. Let me know if you make one! XOXO--Teresa 

Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day one and all! Let's make it the greenest year yet! XOXO--Teresa

Hey there. I hope you’ve had a good week. We’ve had quite the ups and downs here. We’ve had upwards of 70 and now below 30 and snow today. I’d really like the warmer temps to stick around but this is typical CO spring. I’m looking forward to next weekend when Big Girl (moving back this way from Philly) AND Bagette Ingeborg (and her hubby) from Holland will be here! Squeeeee! Need to get all my sewing done! Enjoy the weekend—Teresa๐Ÿฉต๐Ÿฉท๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š

Hello there. It’s been a beat. Prom/wedding season is no joke. I’ve done 25+ dresses and more to go. It sure feels good to send them back out the door! Trees are blooming here and daffodils are popping their sunny faces out to greet the world. It’s 65 here right now and I’m off the play some tennis soon. Thought I’d show you my main view these days, sewing machine and watching Monk on Netflix. Have a fabulous weekend! Teresa ☀️⛰️ ๐ŸŒณ ๐ŸŒธ ๐Ÿงต ๐Ÿชก
