    Look what I got!!!

    One of my long time QB friends (who wishes to remain anonymous) sent me these two beautiful bags in the mail this morning! I am just tickled pink! I've been wanting one for a long time and have been to scared to make one. Now, I have 2 of them!! Yeah!!!!! One to tote all my sewing stuff to my mom's with and one to carry shopping and church. Aren't they beautiful???? Thank you my friend!!!
    Oh yeah..... don't look at all of my junk behind me!! I live in my sewing computer room!

    Gorgeous bags! I'm like you - haven't yet developed the courage to make bags for myself. And your sewing room looks a lot like my dining room - which is not where we eat!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Hi #1piecemaker - those are great bags, but what really caught my eye is you. You're very much a lookalike for a former friend with whom I used to work in NY. Lovely person (I'm sure you are too), sorry we lost touch.

    Wow..what a wonderful friend...and I always told my daughter when she would have her little tiffs with girl friends.."it takes a friend to have a friend" so you must be pretty wonderful yourself!! I like them both but especially the smaller one!

    Beautiful bags. I was getting ready to make me one, but my son bought me a bag for Mother's Day.
