Here we are taking off to see all the new things, and see we have our tote bags I made and the girls were so surprised..They loved them................

First of all we had a great time,,, just went way too fast.. This first picture is just of some of the plants that are being sold.. Lots of herbs, some tomatoes, and some house plants.. We get our plants and coddle them along until spring...

Then just a sample of some of the vendors and what treasures they offer..

Here is a cutie.. just to set in your sewing room, couldn't get too many quilt made with this.

Another One Finished!!

These were the pieces and I put the panel together and this is the finish.


 And this is how I did the top::::
Then I couldn't find any binding to finish the bottom, so I made my own.. nice soft flannel.....
It is for my BFF, and she hardly reads my blog but if she does, I know she won't mind..

Did I Mention Bags..

These are just a few of my creations.. I have made lots of them using old jeans.. People would give me bags of old ones and I have sold many.. I went to a class at our Jackman Fabrics store and fell in love with the patchwork design of BARB RANDLE'S CRAZY QUILTING WITH ATTITUDE. I bought her book, then went to the class ( with a finished bag). Everyone was so impressed and I was so happy that I decided to make more. Then a friend of my DD#! was having a open house and wanted some of my bags,, well sold lots and got lots of orders that evening. Then everyone started making them,. I really enjoy making them but not much market for them now??
