OO YUM YUM

Mmm Mmm these are the fabrics [Sari silks] I am going to use when I do the tutorial for the Quilted Envelope Bag I designed. Scrummy aren't they... I cant wait to get started on them now, BUT they will have to wait a little while as I have started - at last - the Cathedral Window Tutorial first. As soon as that is done these will be next. Gorgeous colours in there if I do say so myself.


MEANTIME
Because the neighbours from Hell got me down down down today,
I am going to cheer myself up
by doing a quick Give Away


This bag is on offer...
leave me a comment on why you would like to win it and it could be yours,
I will close this next Friday - 12 February
See
I feel happy already

I follow the other blog, so it should show up. Guess I commented to early and missed this giveaway. Why would I like to win it? Because you made it and I have a green one very similar and this would be awesome addition to my stash of purses.

Pat said...

OOOOOOOOO...I'd love to win that because the colors are wonderful AND I'd get lots of comments and could tell my friends that JAN, my fellow Janome-hating friend made it!!! hehehe (Pretty good reason to want to win it, huh?)

I certainly would love to win this lovely bag....it's so my colors too!
Can you post a tut on your other blog about how to make the postcard boxes....please, pretty please!!

Well, sheesh, if the neighbors put you in the mood to give stuff away, then I wish they would bother you more often! Just kidding - I'd love the bag to help keep me organized. I usually leave the house with 3 or 4 bags every day - my purse, my sewing bag, my karate bag, my cub scouts bag - see, I need bags to help me stay on top of this busy life of mine!

I am sorry about the neighbors from Hell...
Love your quilted bag; I have been a follower for a very short time, only since I found you via the One World One Way, but i am happy I did.
Purple is one of my favorite colors and my current bag is about to expire on me.

WOW Jan, it's just gorgeous, and it would be just the thing to take for my hand luggage when I go to New Zealand in April. It would also need a new outfit to go with it, so a good excuse to treat myself! hee hee

Pat B said...

Jan, I just love the colours in that bag and you know,it would really suit me so could you PLEASE include me in the draw?

jan said...

Hi All,
You are all great but you know that don't you, I consider myself lucky to have such wonderful friends. Thank you and good luck everyone.
Jan

Maggie, any problems with the Postcard tutorial give me a nudge.....

Lady Hopwood said...

Well I would like it because it is purple and gorgeous and because I can never have too many hand made bags!

Hope the neighbours move soon :-)

Are you taking international entries? My reason would be "purple". Another would be because it looks like it has that technique and it would be nice to see it live. Spring should be coming and who wouldn't like a lovely new bag?
