Hi to all the Sister Thing Swap Sisters!
This was my second bag, ever!
I made it for Bea at in the:
Quilts From My Crayon Box
I have to admit that I was a little intimidated about my sister having so much more quilting experience than I do but I soon got past it.
I have been a follower of Bea's blog for quite a while.
This is what I came up with for her.

I really enjoyed making this bag.
The pattern is "The Just Right Bag" by Sue Pritt.
It is "fallish" fabrics, with pockets inside and out. The handle is adjustable. The outside pocket has the first zipper that I have put in since a tayloring class in high school. The top closes with a magnetic snap. I will definitely do this one again for myself.
I sent a few other goodies, like a Christmas charm pack and a very special tea that I was introduced to on my recent Alaska vacation.
Thank you Bea for patiently waiting until I got back from vacation.
I really hope we do this again! (Michele?)

A Sister Thing!

Quilts From My Crayon Box
Kathy at is my swap Sister!
She and my sister, Michele at, conspired and Kathy sent me her gift just before John and I left on our dream vacation in Alaska.
 The timing could not have been more perfect!

I, LOVE this bag!. It's was made from beautiful fabric, it's big, has lots of pockets inside and  has  a key holder that came in really handy. It was the perfect carry on.
Kathy also sent a Christmas charm pack that I have already picked  a table topper pattern for as well as a cute tote pattern.(Hmmm........maybe the Ghastlie swap)

Thank you to Kathy who is an ideal sister and my sister, Michele for hosting this swap.
