UPDATE: New Zealand Chapter

Yay! I love library bags. Such a great use of fabric and learning rolled in one! And, Bagette Olive, I know who Bluey is because my 25 year old daughter and my husband LOVE the show. I have to admit, it is super sweet and hilarious. So glad the quilt group is making bags and sharing them. Keep up the amazing work in NZ. It's one of my goals to get there to visit! XOXO--Teresa



66 library bags were donated today and shared between two community libraries in Palmerston north.  The bags were made by members of Rose City Quilters, Palmerston north as part of our community  outreach work. Just in time for1st week of NZ winter school holidays. Many bags were suitable for children. Especially the "Bluey  fabric bags. Bluey is an Australian cartoon show for little kids.

Hey peeps. Yesterday got away from me which is fine because I can show off this yummy cake I took to a lemon theme bridal shower today. It’s a lemon olive oil cake recipe with lemon cream cheese buttercream frosting. So yum. I also gave out the lemon fabric bags I made a couple weeks ago as party favors. All things lemon are a good thing! Hope you are having a fresh weekend! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‹πŸ˜‹πŸ’›

UPDATE: MAINE, SW Harbor Chapter

I love this update from Bagette Barbara. Look at the traveling bags, soup and even Santa. You ladies are all amazing, doing such a great job and clearly having lots of fun! Love it all. Keep up the fabulous work--Teresa


Hi Teresa.

The Maine Chapter of the Green Bag Lady has been meeting regularly at the Common Good Soup Kitchen in Southwest Harbor, Maine and having a blast!
Here's a photo of Bagettes Pat, Barbara, & Julie tasting soup prepared by Chef Jay. Yum!
Bagette Pam took one of our GBL bags to France and had a photo taken in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. Ooo la la.
Bagette Barbara took a GBL bag to Washington, DC and had a photo taken in front of Abraham Linccoln at the Lincoln Memorial. 
We have a new Maine bagette. Santa came down from the North Pole to help with the GBL Project since he is not very busy at this time of the year. Here's a photo of him holding a child size GBL bag. Go Santa!
We received a fun and unique donation of sailcloth. Here's a photo of Bagette Julie cutting it to size.
We received a donation of an ironing board too! Here's a photo of it. Now, I don't need to lug mine to our meetings. Yay!

Happy Summer!

Yes, it’s Sunday. Ha ha. Hubby and I hopped a plane Friday to visit Big Girl in Bozeman, MT while she was on a brief break from her director job at Girl Scout camp this summer. So great to see her thriving and enjoying outdoor beauty this summer. We did 2 hikes to gorgeous waterfalls, ate some yummy food and even found a good deals at a cool thrift store. Hope you’ve had a fun weekend too! XOXO—Teresa

Hello Friday! I’ve been a busy bee in my sewing room playing catch up. I’m happy to report that many items of clothing went back out the door this week. Feels so good to get things done. Of course, I still have a pile of things calling my name so I’m off to hem pants, work on a wedding dress and add buttons to shams and a duvet cover. Enjoy this photo of Steamboat Lake from last weekend. Happy weekend to all! Teresa 🐝❤️πŸ’™⛰️☁️
