    I've said it before. This board has a lot of responsibility for the trouble I get into. First I had to make a tote with the Bunny Hill pattern, Jelly Bags. Those were pretty simple and turned out pretty cute. Then I had to try the Bow Tucks Totes that everyone here was making and sharing. Oh, yeah! Very addictive!! Then I needed a bag for my granddaughter so I bought the Potato Chip Bag pattern (bet you can't make just one!) for her.

    This really got out of control when I decided that all of my daughters needed to have a new purse when we gather in June for our youngest daughter's wedding. I'm done now. But wait! I didn't make one for me! Sigh! One more!!! There may be one extra in the picture but I'm not sure at this point!!

    A nest of bags!

    Your purses are so cute. Love your color choices. I know what you mean. I was just going to make one purse for myself. Ten purses later I THINK that I am finally done making purses. LOL :lol:

    Laugh on Line. LOL. I was going to ask:
    "at what number of something do we tag it an 'addiction'"?
    Not yet, you still need one more bag so we will save the tag for ? bag # 30? :lol: :lol:

    They are great looking bags! I made 6 totes for the bridal party last year. They get addicitng- the first is the hardest and before long, they're easy as pie!
