Hi Cuties, I wanted to show you some more gifts for the Texas trip. Nine larger bags fully lined and one, so far, ITH bag with my name on all but the black/green ones. I always manage to forget sometimes. Oh well.

Those two and the navy dots were cut from fat quarters. I pressed the quarters in half and then half again. I then squared them up using all the piece.I would have liked it to be 9x11inch but the FQ were not straight when folded so it came out less, maybe 8 1/2 x 10 1/2.
One FQ gave me the outer pieces for two bags. I lined the navy with another red FQ, so two FQ's will do two bags with a contrast inside. If you don't want a contrast, then 1 FQ will do 1 complete bag.
I also free motion quilted all the larger bags, but the two green/black, to give them body. If I don't quilt, I use Pellon 809 in them.
Well now I have 16 gifts made! Just _ _ more to go!-lol

They are all lovely. But I really like the black and green ones the best. They are such great gifts and so practical.

I think so too, as we can always find something to put inside. The green and black I had used before on a wallet and purse. I sold the purse, but she didn't want/need the wallet. I personally didn't care for that style of purse but I do like the wallet. I planned on making another purse to match the wallet again, but haven't, as yet. Thanks DebB

Is it just me, or do you want to keep one of each?

Lady just when do you sleep? I can't imagine how you get everything done that you sew and then have grands and husband and house to care for! I need some of whatever you are taking!! Hugs. Nan W

It's called 'drive', I drive/push until I can't push anymore. I do have trouble sleeping so I am usually up late, sometimes sewing, sometimes watching a movie.

The last group sure did like the kitchen boas and the hanger safes, although they liked the little ith bags and cord wraps too. One man is promised a valet tray, as we miscounted and he was the only man didn't get one. Well, we really gave his to a man that we weren't suppose to, as that man got one on the trip before. So Richard will get his this next trip. He had missed the trip before but he and his lovely wife are regulars.

I'm amazed at how much you and others accomplish. Great work. Might I ask where your Texas trip is taking you?

All the way down to the Gulf coast at Corpus Christi! My son has a friend in Corpus Christi and he and my dh has been there. The friend leased part of what is known as the King Ranch and my men went on a hunting trip there. I was invited to go too, as they had nice cabins or hunting lodges, but not my thing, so I politely declined.
Thanks for looking at my bags!
