Russia Bag!

Hello, dear Teresa!
Thank you very much for the wonderful bag! Now I am the happiest! :) Yahoo!!!

A Quilt for Harmony

Way back in the fall I got a wonderful fabric donation, lots of really fun quilting weight cotton. Included in the donation were many completed and partially done quilt blocks as well as cut pieces for the same quilt. The pieces were too small for bags and I wasn't quilt sure what to do with them at first. Then, it occurred to me that I should just finish the quilt. Around this same time I happened to be chatting with Harmony on the phone and asked her if she was in need of a new quilt for her bed. She answered with a resounding YES! So, over a period of a couple months I finished the queen size quilt, took it to a longarm quilter here in town and finished off the binding. The backing and trim around the sides is Harmony's own vein fabric. It coordinated beautifully with the rest of the fabric. I had the quilter use a circle pattern and it all turned out so lovely.

The funny part is that after the quilt finally got to Harmony she had forgotten all about our conversation. She was so surprised. How fun! These are the photos of the quilt happily at home in Harmony's bedroom. I hear she likes it. :) 

Also, Harmony now owns more quilts that I have made than anyone else:

Blankie Quilt (from her childhood clothes!)


Photo Finish Friday

Throw some bags in this photo and it would sum up my life right now. Bags, deer and tennis, yay!
This is my idea of heaven.

I haven't met one of these I don't like.

An awesome new blog by my friend Colleen who has been struggling with cancer for years.

How to start your own country.

All of these made me smile.


Guess what? We are moving HOME! YAY! I'm so excited. The house is not done, but we are moving in anyway and will deal with it. My own bed, yipee! Teresa

Russia Bag!

Hello, Teresa!

Thank you for the wonderful bag! I take it with me when I go to the market. Here's a photo to show you how I use it.

Thank you once again! I wish you'll change the world to better!

Best regards,

Workday Wednesday

I'm finally (kinda) back in my sewing room! Yay! I mean, the whole place is in a shambles, but at least I can get to my machines and make some bags! Whew. We will move back into the house on Friday even though the floors are not finished. I don't care, I'll live with the pounding and the machine noises. I just want to be home!

So, to celebrate being reunited with my machines, I made some bags out of the fabric I won from Harmony (see this post). They will be so pretty!
And, I whipped some bags from this Harmony fabric to be used for an Earth Day Girl Scout project. The troop is coming to my house to sew the handles on. Squee, so excited! I'll post photos, promise.
I piled up some bolts of fabric in the corner of my sewing room, just to make me happy. I'll probably move them later, I just like looking at a corner full of bolts. :)
I also photographed bags and packed them in a box for Bagette Dad. Inside is the contents of 6 future freebies. This is a little sneak peak of what is to come. I topped off the box with 35 other bags for Bagette Dad to give away. I know this will make him happy. I just need to get it in the mail…
What are you up to? I love hearing what all of you are working on. I promise to share photos of my sewing room when I finally get it back in order. Lots of work. Teresa
