Item #1 You guys are all SO sweet. Every comment that came in from my last post made me just want to hug each and every one of you, (and I am not a huggy person, just ask my mom) Thanks for being so kind and understanding!
Item #2 The 'obligations' I mentioned that I would be finishing up here just so happen to involve a fair bit of yummy fabric that I will do my best to entice you with over the next week or two!
So, if you remember, awhile back I showed you a quilt I'd made from Laurie Wisbrun's Brrr! fabric line. There are two color groups, the turquoise and red, and the green and red. So here's my take on the green and red!
A little confession here: I'm not really a fan of seasonal decor, which includes Christmas! So these Christmasey colors just weren't inspiring me in a quilty way (although I have a feeling they'd make a great quilt if you just happen to be a little more normal than me!)
But that doesn't mean that I don't want to give my Christmas gifts to friends and family in some uber-awesome handmade gift bags that can be reused for any purpose, and are actually a gift in themselves!
I used Jeni's tutorial for these bags, and then just changed the sizes for a few of them.
So that's my take on the perfect way to use this fabric! Which will be out in June by-the-way. Which will be just in time for you to sew up in lots of time for Christmas by-the-way! Have I convinced you?! I hope so!!
Ohhhhh!!! I almost forgot!!!! I have a fat quarter bundle of this ENTIRE set to give to send to one of you. I messed up and forgot to get a photo of it, but believe me, it's a pretty sweet little bundle. Just leave me a comment on this post, and you'll be entered to win!
I'll draw a name on Monday morning!
