SORRY TO HAVE BEEN GONE!

...BUT I'M BACK!
*****
So sorry I was MIA ....I just needed a bit of time to get a few things in order and to finish a few UFO's. You know how it is ...to many things to do and so little time!
One little thing that I had to finish up ...was this 'Friendship Bag' for a swap I joined.
You can check out it out here. Rachel Griffith also put together this
great tutorial here. Here is the little bag I made
for my secret partner. I will say ....I did have
to mail it out of the country. That's all I'll say, I'm not sure
if she has recieved it.

I had a lot of fun sewing this and using up a few of my fat quarters.
It's a fun little project and so easy to sew.

I used a feather stich to quilt this bag. The little bags were to be 5″ high, 5.5″ wide, 3″ depth.


And....here is what I sent along with my bag! A few fat quarters, a little crochet covered tape measure and a flower pin cushion.I also included a few buttons, pins and rick-rack trim! I also sent along a few 'Made in Utah' truffle bars!

Here is it ...all filled up and ready for the post. It's amazing how much stuff you can stuff into this little bag! I sure hope my 'secret partner' likes my 'Friendship Bag'!

Thanks for letting me share! If you like to see more 'Friendship Bags' you can go over to the
