Photo Finish Friday

My present for hubby for Valentine's Day.
Wow. These are cool.

Field trip!

I love this kind of thing.

Ooooh, this looks yummy!

Can't agree more.

Amazing photos.

A reason to go to the post office.

I'm in Minnesota right now. My niece is getting married tomorrow. I'll be sure to get a photo of me and Bagette Dad for you all to see. :) I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day yesterday. Any big romantic gestures you care to share? We are pretty low key about the holiday at our house. It's never been a biggie for me. Wishing you a lovely weekend! Teresa

Pennsylvania Bag!

I so love that Curious George (from this freebie in Dec) is peeking up at her when she opens her purse! Teresa
One of the things I love about the bags from Green Bag Lady is that they are not bulky. I work in retail and am as always picking things up last minute and I don't have a reusable bag. I can keep these bags folded and in my purse so I'm never without a bag! Love these bags!

Photo Finish Friday

Quite the foggy morning here on Wednesday.
Ugh ugh ugh.

So cool. (watch the video)


To make this for my basement. Wolf spiders love it down there, especially in piles of fabric! EEK!

For Valentines Day.

I love that these look like fabric!

We celebrated a friend turning 50 last night. Hoping for a quiet night tonight. :) Meeting with my Green Bag Lady group on Sunday. Fun fun. I hope you have a lovely weekend. Come back tomorrow for a fun freebie! XOXO--Teresa

Russia Bags!

Hello. I am Irina from Novosibirsk (Russia), I received 3 bags from you.
I really liked your bags. I also want to thank you for your great contribution to the preservation of the ecology of the planet. What you do is very important. I wish you success in everything!

UPDATE: NEW YORK--Syracuse Area Chapter

Look at these awesome bags that Margaret is making. They are so very cute! The patchwork is amazing and tedious but she is doing such a great job with them. I know that the kids she is giving them to love them and enjoy seeing all the different fabrics sewn together. 150 bags! You SEW Margaret, we heart you! Teresa

I'm really enjoying the smiles on people's faces when I explain your mission. I have enough fabric right now to keep me in bags for another month or two.  The Deruyter school kids'  (library book) bags are made from 18 6 inch squares sewn together...a former home & careers teacher left 100s of them behind, so I am using them up slowly but surely. She also had dozens of 16" squares (pillow backs I guess) which I occasionally use. I can't abide the thought of fabric in a landfill.

150 and counting. Each bag is truly unique.
