Green Bag Lady

Green Bag Lady has a fantastic cause she has been doing since 2008.  To eliminate the abundance of plastic waste in the world, she has been giving away handmade, beautiful, reusable market bags.  I just received an email today, that said I am the proud recipient of bag #20,500!!  How awesome is that?  I won last week in a contest that she hosted to giveaway her awesome bags.  She said she has been keeping some vintage fabric on hand for quite some time, so she decided to make some special bags out of it, and I was one of the winners!!  I will treasure that bag for the rest of my life, let me tell you.  Go check out her site and read about all the goodness she has put back into the Universe ;)  I'll post a picture when I get it in the mail this week ;)

My Blog

So far, I have only really blogged on giveaways other bloggers are having.  Or have put my favorite places to visit, as a button on the right side of the blog.  Go on, click it!  You'll get to go to some awesome sites.  I'm a beginning quilter.  Now saying this, I haven't actually finished a quilt yet.  I've finished a cozy flannel blanket, and 3 sashes for winners of a chili cook-off (think beauty pageant sash). I have a simple Singer 2932, and JUST got my free motion darning foot today.  The lady at the Viking store told my mom that it would throw my machine out-of-whack and mess up the tension.  I think I could attempt to correct the tension, but I'm not positive.  I haven't read anything so far, about this particular foot messing up my machine.  I'm kinda nervous to use it, but I have A TON of projects I want to finish.

My List of Important Projects to Finish

  1. My Owl quilt
  2. Dad's quilt
  3. Mom's quilt
  4. Aunt Deb's Hexi lap quilt
  5. Sherry's blanket
  6. 3 more for Sherry's kids
  7. Nate's quilt
  8. Moda-walk in the woods quilt
  9. Wall Hanging of Angie
  10. Charm quilt-blue plaid
  11. Keith's quilt
  12. Ash's dog quilt
  13. Riley Blake-Rolie Polie 
  14. Bday Journal
I know I'm forgetting something...

Once I get started on my sewing, I am going to post more on my projects.  I just not quite there yet.  I love looking and reading about fabric online and what others are doing with it.  

A lot of the reason why I blog about the giveaways, is that it gives me another chance for entry into the contest.  This week I plan on posing on my winnings as soon as my last prize comes in the mail.  I really hope to win something this week! Wish me luck :)

That's what started me collected buttons! Those are the neat little square pictures to the right, that will take you to some of my favorite place when you click on them. Aren't they cute?!  My dream is to have stacks and stacks of fabric that I can create and make beautiful things with.... Sigh :)
