This Past Sunday…

We had a great meeting this last Sunday for Green Bag Lady CO. Bagette Dad was visiting and it was nice to include him in the bag making festivities. Bagette Marianne hard at work on handles…
 Bagette Tami and Bagette Dad…
 Bagette Barbara and Bagette Liz…
 And, they insisted that there be a photo of me and all my bag cutting glory…
Thanks for coming everyone. It's great to have Bagette Dad here for the week! Yay! He is taking a bunch of stuff back to MN with him for Green Bag Lady there, finished bags, 1/2 finished bags, fabric, boxes of handles, etc. Teresa

Workday Wednesday

I have been a busy little beaver this week. One of the first things I did was machine maintenance. This was long overdue, especially on this machine. Poor thing. It has been kind of clunking along for a while. No wonder. Lots of dust and needed a good oiling. It now runs like butter…
 Likewise on this serger, really needed a good dust extraction and oiling…
 After that was done, I serged a pile of handles…
 Made some large, sturdy bags for Meals on Wheels in California…
 Finished the wine bags that I talked about last week
And, in helping to kickstart Green Bag Lady MN, I am sending home with Bagette Dad (he is visiting this week) a couple of big stacks of serged bags with handles and a large bag (made from fabric samples) of fabric too…
What are you up to? Do tell. Teresa

Brazil Bags!


This past summer, Little Man attended a great soccer camp where the coaches were either from England or Brazil. We were lucky enough to host a sweet, cute, wonderful woman from Bazil in our home. Seriously, she was darling. She took some bags back to Brazil with her and has been handing them out to family and friends (photos above). Thanks Daniele! Teresa

Mississippi Bags!

Got the bag on the left during the green fest hosted by the Girl Scouts of Tupelo in 2011. I won the timeless treasure fabric in 2012 for the bag on the right, which I hand sew. won the bag in the middle from the blues collection just recently (and in bottom pic). Thank you Green Bag Lady, thank you.
