So for WIP this week I have started working on a new project since I finished off my three UFO'S for this month , yes it is a fun tote bag which was designed by the very talented Annette and she kindly asked me to test out her pattern for her . The pattern is called Daisy a Day , so pretty and I love daisies but I decided to make mine a little different and they will be more like brown eyed Susan's , also a favorite of mine. Here is what I have done so far.
Annette for providing me with some fun sewing .
I am also working away slowly on the sampler quilt on my frame , that will take me a long time but slow and steady wins the race right ;-)
My mailbox is real happy this week , I have received two packages from wins from blogs , the first was some pretty fabrics from Joanna of Needle Thread Happiness Blog , for participating in the Christmas SAL , it was a real surprise to learn I had won as I didn't realize I was even in a draw for these lovely fabrics .
It is too bad the challenge with the SAL states no red or green as these yummy fabrics would be perfect .Thanks so much Joanna and I am looking forward to the next months SAL.
Yesterday I received this package in the mail , are you familiar with the Greenbag lady ? Well this lady is amazing , each bag is numbered and she has given away at least 24,642 bags as that is the number on my bag , isn't that amazing . Her goal is to encourage each of us to use cloth bags for shopping and so much more rather than reach for plastic , wonderful idea. I use cloth bags when I grocery shop much to the dismay of some of the cashiers but I persist anyway .
Isn't this a fun bag , colorful with those bright dots , the back is yellow like the side panel, all fabrics are donated and she makes use of everything .
Here you can see inside the bag where she places the number of the bag sent , I am blown away at her dedication to this project , lets see what we can all do to use cotton over plastic , bags are a lot of fun to make and don't have to be elaborate to work so lets get sewing !! Go here to read more about this project .
I am linking up today to the Needle and Thread Network for WIP Wednesday , why not take a few moments to see what others have done this week , you will be inspired I am sure .
Thanks so much for stopping by , have a wonderful day being creative in whatever way makes you happy.
