Hello, My name is Nancy....

and I am addicted to making these sock sacks!!!

I need some serious help here folks. It started innocently enough reading a blog and following directions. Then it became FUN!! These are so much FUN to make!!

It started with this....



progressed onto this one...



today it started with this...



and then I pulled out the scraps... I only had a little bit of Katie's Jump Rope fabric left.. Is this not the cutest thing.... I LOVE IT...



So guess what?...My birthday is this month. On THIS post only guess the day of my birthday. If you are correct, I will put your name in the hat for your choice of bag. You can pick the pink one or the sewing notion one. Sorry, you can't pick the orange one. I am not giving up my Katie's Jump Rope bag. You can guess as many times as you want. I will draw on the day of my actual birthday...so get those guesses in quick!!

Now I need to find another Atkinson design pattern. OR maybe I need to make more bags?? LOL

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

Hi Nancy I love your site and your blog posting and I do believe I will be a faithful reader from now on--it that ok??? MY guess for your B-day is July 24th at least that is today's guess??? And I really love the pink bag--I am doing the blog hop and that is how I found you--I haven't gotten to make any bags yet--there is always tomorrow--the last couple days I have been working real hard on the Shabby rose blocks as I just decided to do them recently--i am starting the 6th one now--the boot--it is sooo cute. See ya soon. hugs, just, Di

Gwendie said...

I didn't realize you were the Nancy she was talking about! Speedy little dickens, you are.

I'll try the 10th because that's my mom's birthday.

Gwendie said...

I'll also guess the 22nd because that was my parents anniversary.

Gwendie said...

And the 31st because it's my son's birthday. Okay, I'm done now.

Lorraine said...

Oh Pat.....I do hope you win.....LOL.....I followed the link from your post yesterday and have bookmarked the site as these little bags look like lots of fun....but I couldn't even cope with fun stuff yesterday as I was lucky enough to be chosen by some germs to host their head cold party.....I am hoping they move on soon!! I have no idea when your birthday is Nancy but will guess the 5th........good luck Pat..I think you deserve to win....!

Kathy said...

Love the bags you made from Terry's blog. I will guess that your birthday is July 13th!

Carolyn said...

I would love to guess (and win) but since Nancy is my sister I'll keep the date to myself. But I did have to think about it since our mom and dad's anniversary is one day before her birthday or is it one day after her birthday - now I'm confused. Makes for interesting finger counting LOL

Good Luck Everyone!!!

I was going to guess the 29th (because that's my birthday too), but Pat has that one covered... so maybe the 17th?

Very cute bags, now please don't include me in the draw, as I've won from you in the past, but I will have a guess. I'm thinking it's one of those days between the 2nd and the 31st :)). Either way it still makes you older than me :))
