OOh La La.....french seams

Last week was a very special week. Do you think you can guess? Was it special because my last born became a senior? (Yes, you did!!) Was it special because I was told I was going to be a great-aunt? AGAIN!!

Maybe it was special because


I HIT 400 POSTS!!!

That's right!! Sometime last week, I wrote my 400th post. I would have never thought that I would have had enough to say to fill 400 posts. I am even pretty sure some of it was even interesting.....


So, should I have a giveaway? Should I sew up something on a Sunday evening, draw a name from all the commenter's last week and send it off? Did I hear a YES!!!


OK, Here is what I made Sunday evening...










Yes, it's a going green market bag.... Um...did you notice the FRENCH SEAMS...I have always read about French Seams, but never attempted them. What a great finish for a market bag. You certainly don't want to line a market bag. Can't have it heavy before you even load it up with goodies... So french seams are the answer...
This bag took only 1/2 yard of material and about 20 minutes to stitch... Not bad.

So, who is the winner?
Um....come back this afternoon, when I have had a chance to write everyones name down. You all got one entry for each comment last week. From Monday to Sunday.
So if you commented every day, you got 7 entries... You didn't even know it did you??

Well, today is working on that mystery quilt. I WILL CUT AND SEW ON THE BORDERS TODAY!! Nothing will deter me...I MUST DO IT...

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

Okay....I'll look here when I get to NJ later today (on my girlfriend's computer). I LOVE that market bag. I use them but they are from the various grocery stores and I'd LOVE to have one that does NOT have advertising on it, so I hope I might have been the lucky person!!! Have a good day working on the mystery quilt.
