Home again

First off, I need to send a big thank you to Cindy at Sew Cindy. She had a quick one day giveaway and I won!

There are a couple of projects in this book calling my name, but I think they will have to wait until next Christmas, my list is full already for this year.

I had a great time in Oregon celebrating my Mom's birthday (Happy Birthday again Mom!), and visiting with my niece Emmalisa and her daughter Brooklyn, Jayme and other friends. Plus I did a little shopping. Some quilt shopping but mostly tire shopping...I know, boring, but they were on sale and Oregon has no sales tax - what more could an unemployed girl ask for.

Since my Mom's birthday is over I can now show one of the "no peeking" items I made. Remember this:

It is the corner on the pocket of this:

A tuck away shopping bag.

Very easy to make. I made it with batiks so it is also very sturdy. (Wow! Look at all those birthday cards!).

I also have to send a BIG THANK YOU to Ben for setting up/configuring my new(used) laptop with wireless. I got to check out all my favorite blogs while I was gone.

Congratulations on your win! You must be on a lucky streak as I read this morning on Gudren's World that you've won again. How Fun!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time in Oregon. Cute bag and what a fun give-away prize.
