this and that...


Been working on this and that, this past week... I made 39 of these eco-friendly sandwich bags. They are lined with baggie plastic, and then you fold them up and close them with velcro. Just wipe the plastic clean, and you are ready to use it again. The customer chose all kinds of different fabric combinations. They are really fun! :o)

And finally, I can show what I sent Beatrice (A Needle in a Haystack) for Christmas. I sent this little quilt on December 3rd and it finally arrived on her doorstep in France on January 13th! Christmas in January, I guess! :o) I really love this little quilt and hope to make another one for myself. Some of the little fabric "bits" in the baskets are actually vintage fabrics. :o) It is hand-quilted. :o)

I will be back later this week with my next give-away! Have a Happy Monday! :o)

The bags are great! But that basket quilt -- ooh, la, la. Did you use the Cindy Blackberg stamps for it?
