PP10 received!

So I received my PP10 market bag from Nancy Peach in the mail yesterday!! (how funny is that that our last names are so similar?:) I love the bright apple & brown crosshatch fabrics she used! 
And how fun is the mini bag? I think my girls will love it for playing "grocery". It's so perfect to carry their wooden food in it! The mini bag reverses to this darling kitchen print! 
In other fabric news, I received my first two packages from Fabric.com this weekend! There is a glitch in their system that lets you edit your cart after you've applied a $20off coupon code, so you can get fabric for super cheap & free shipping or for free & just pay shipping!! There has been alot of fun with it over on Flickr. Here are my picks. 
 Reunion bunting & numbers to go with a charm pack I have & the "children at play" paper boats are flannel which they tell me would make a fabulous quilt backing. I guess now I need to make that boy quilt for my nephew!:) I'm sure he would be thrilled.
And this Micheal Miller "mini mikes bunting" is just too adorable!! I can see it showing up in all sorts of projects as well! Now to find some more time to sew again!:)
Have a happy Tuesday!!

Echino bag

I got super lucky one day last week when I popped onto flickr just as my friend Kelly posted that she was giving away her gently handmade bags for the cost of shipping!!! Yes!! I've loved this green echino bag ever since she made it & feel so lucky to be carrying it around! It's the perfect green! Thanks again Kelly for making my day  week!

The PP10 bag

I've finished my bag for the potholder swap & sent it along with a few goodies in fridays mail. I had alot of fun sewing up this bag, (first time using the jane bag pattern) & I love how it came out! Truth be told, I could have so easily kept it for myself! Now the suspense of seeing what bag I receive in return!

Linking up with Megan @ Canoe Ridge Creations and {sew} modern monday!

And Heather & Megan at Quilt Story Fabric Tuesday!

The start of something new! I'm finally jumping in & bravely starting a blog!!!!
Wish me luck!:)

I love the potholder pass group on Flickr! We get to sew something beautiful for our secret partner & in return get something beautiful from another partner. Here are my fabric pulls for the reusable grocery bag. I think will love this bag myself!
