Switching Modes

Hello Everyone,

I know you have been waiting for a name on our kitty. My daughter finally picked one.... drum roll please.... His name is Pavi. Yes, that is his name, she just liked it. Thank you for all your wonderful suggestions.

Even though she didn't pick anyone's suggestion, I still decided that I am going to give away a charm pack. The winner is the 48th comment (generated by Mr. Random Number Generator)... Deborah from Caitty Quilts. Congrats!

Now onto quilty stuff. I needed a quick little gift and decided to make a bag. This one made up really fast.


Take note that I used these great grommets that the pattern called for... NO TOOLS REQUIRED!


The bag was a pattern I found from Endless Mountain Quilt Works in Tunkhannock, PA.


The grommets were found in JoAnn's Fabrics and come in a variety of colors. I used black in the above bag and here is a photo of the champagne color.


Then, I still wanted some quick little projects, so I made up 3 Sweet Treat bags in 3 different color ways. Okay, so I think I am in the "Channeling Stephanie Mode"!

This little Caribbean Waters Batik bag.


A Black, White, and Fuschia bag. Which also met the Black and White Challenge, YAY! You can see more photos of this bag there.


And a Moda bag. All these little sweet treat can be found for sale in my Etsy shop.


Anyway, that is what I have been up to. I am looking forward to doing my next Podcast and newsletter. So they will be up soon.

Until Next Time,

Jackie, I was just in that same store in PA last week with my sister! And I saw those same super-cool no-tool grommets on several bags around the shop! I even took lots of pictures and bought lots of fabric which I will be showing off on my website soon! Perhaps we ran into each other and didn't even know it!

Small world!

I never thought about curtain grommets. That would be much more economical than the ones I bought. Thanks for sharing.

Ahhh... purse heaven!

I have tried attaching grommets before and the hole/grommet looked so mangled & deadly the purse was not useable -- any tried & true suggestions for that perfect hole?
