Some Giveaways

I came across a couple of giveaways you should check out. Debbie is having a unique art giveaway. And May Britt is having a second anniversary of her blog giveaway. So check them out. One more to check out at Farmyard Crafts-another Australian crafter. Sure are a lot of creative crafters and quilters in Australia.

And back at the sewing and quilt studio here I'm still getting somewhat distracted. I made a couple of adjustments on the lunch bag I made. I was not happy with the closure on the original pattern which was a couple of long ties to tie in a bow. So I ripped them out (carefully with a seam ripper) and did a loop and button. Much better.
Then just about everything needs a couple or three yo-yo's so here are a few with some of my vintage buttons. OK, now I can get on with other things.


  1. I think your pattern modifications are just perfect! I need a lunch bag like that!

  2. I love the lunch bag, you are so talented..great modifications!!!

  3. Looks great . . . there's nothing like lunch that is taken from a festive bag *s*

  4. It turned out adorable, I love the yo-yo's and the button loop!

  5. The bag is great- you could use it for lots of things, wouldn't have to just be lunch!
    Love your return to sender blocks too!

  6. Hi Chris,

    It's nice to meet you. And yes, you are correct. My kitchen floor is Pergo. We love it. It's so easy to care for. Don't you just love your Pergo floor?

    I hope we can visit again soon.

  7. Hi Chris,

    I think you are right, we do seem to have similar styles. I love when that happens, don't you?

    I can't wait to visit again soon.


  8. Beautiful, Chris! So colorful and fun! Have you ever considered opening an etsy shop to sell your bags? I think they'd go over well there!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
