We got about 9 inches of snow last night! Wow. We do need the water but I am craving warmer temps. I just got my second dose of Pfizer vaccine. Hoping I’m lucky and don’t have side effects. Have a lovely weekend peeps! XOXO—Teresa
I'm the worst and remembering to take photos in social situations. I get so involved in talking and enjoying the people I'm with that I forget to document the scene. I got to meet with my very special Nashville Bagettes over the weekend. Aren't they adorable? I love them and miss them so much. Many sitting at this table were with Green Bag Lady in the very beginning. In fact, Bagette April (second from left) was the first person to reach out to me and tell me she wanted to help. To say I adore her is an understatement. Well, I adore them all. This is where it all started folks. Nashville, Tennessee, 2008 and now we have 103 chapters all over the world. Wow. XOXO--Teresa
This is excellent! I love what Bagette Olive and her team are doing in New Zealand. Love the use of extra fabric and orphan quilt blocks, such pretty bags! Keep up the great work Olive and thanks for the update--TeresaWe have started a community sewing group in Ashhurst as part of our quilt guild to use up an excess of donated fabric . Some are made using left over quilt blocks too (orphan blocks) we have donated a dozen to a local community library. 40 have gone to a local charity Starlightjoy and we are making some now for a free food rescue store.

Before the pandemic, I used to wash my bags about once or month or if they were visibly dirty. Now, I wash them every time I go grocery shopping. It's probably not necessary but it makes me feel better. Here are some that I just pulled out of the dryer. Some of my Bagettes from around the world will recognize bags they have given me! :) Do you wash your bags often? Cheers! Teresa
I could NOT be more thrilled to announce this special chapter. Bagette Barbara has been a long standing Bagette starting with me in Tennessee, then Colorado, then Washington State, then Washington DC and finally settling in Maine. YAY! Our first Maine chapter. Let me know if you live in Maine and want to help Barbara, she's looking for Bagettes. Happy Monday--Teresa
You probably noticed I haven't been around this week. My cousin is visiting for skiing, we went up to the cabin last weekend and I had a nasty migraine yesterday. There it is in a nutshell. I'll be better in the future. Promise! XOXO--Teresa
PS--NO side effects from the vaccine, not even a sore arm, YAY!
I love this so much! My super talented former student, Meredith, started the coolest store (What a Load of Scrap, great name!) in Columbia, Tennessee. If you are near there go check it out and grab a FREE Green Bag Lady bag! 💕💕💕
Rainy days are made for crafting! We’re here at the Columbia Arts Building from 10-4 today. We have new bags that hold a little more, and you get to keep the reusable bag! These bags were provided by Green Bag Lady...give them a follow, their mission is near and dear to our hearts (and the founder is one of our favorite college professors)!
