Another bag done.

I met a cousin on facebook a couple of months ago. We haven't seen each other in over 40 years. After looking through my photos she decided she wanted a bag and one to match for her granddaughter. This is what I made. This is the Mini Bow Tucks bag by Penny Sturgis for Quilts Illustrated.

Bag jewelry for gramma's bag.


Bag jewelry for the little one.


Sandra and her husband live in Alabama. They are going to come down New Year's Eve to hear our group play at a private party. I can't wait to see her again.

Here is a diaper bag I did for an ex-neighbor. She loved it. Can you guess she's having a boy? LOL

Swap received

SewMamaSew had a bag swap and you should see the pretty bag I received from Bonnie! We each went to equilter.com and put our favorite fabrics in a wish list. Then the other could choose without fearing to hurt the other's feelings with a fabric they just didn't like.

Please take a look at Bonnie's blog. I also received a chocolate bar, key ring to match the bag and one of her original patterns of a dress to make for my granddaughter.

She put up photos of the bag she sent me. I will not put up my photos of hers yet until she receives it.

I made her the bag, tissue holder, make-up bag, beaded zipper pull and a couple of magnets. Added a few other things that she mentioned she loved; angels and flamingos and pink fat quarter. Sure hope she likes it.

My precious girl

This is Daisy. She became my little girl about 2 months ago. My daughter Theresa didn't have room for her in her car when she moved back to Oklahoma. I can't tell you how much I love this little comedian. She runs, chases, retrieves and tumbles. She prances like a little bunny. And she is the best snuggler at night. Don't need a hot water bottle around here.



Here is her pillow and afghan under my desk.


I totally forgot about my win from Oak Hollow Primitives. Whispered Secrets From A Primitive Past was having a 12 days of Christmas giveaway.
Received my pretty ornament today.
