lucky lucky me!

I just love swaps and giveaways! I always seem to come out of both a winner. Last week our Modern Quilt Guild had a Valentines swap. I shared the mug rug I made for it here. There were so many beautiful Valentine treats swapped that night. I wish I had gotten pictures of all of them! But, lucky me, I came away with this beautiful pouch made by Sarah....

 She tucked fat quarters of the pretty solids she had used inside, along with some candy treats! Thank you Sarah! You totally rock!

As luck would have it, another Sara, over at Sew Sweetness, announced that I was the winner of this beautiful bag!
 You can read all about this awesome bag here, and learn how many of us contributed scraps toward it's creation. I have to be honest, I had totally forgotten that I had sent Sara scraps for the bag! When she posted about it's creation (and the publication of the pattern in the newest issue of Fat Quarterly) I was shocked to see my name as the winner of the bag!
I adore this bag, Sara is the queen of awesome bag patterns, so it's no surprise the bag is fantastic!

Not much sewing going on in my house for reasons that will soon be revealed to you. I did finish up a zippy pouch for a swap that I will share with you after it has been mailed and received. Meanwhile, I think I'll just enjoy the things that everyone else is making for me!

Nice bags - you can never have too many!

Awesome pouch and bag! I haven't done any swaps lately, so no cool wins for me. That's okay, though… it's just fun to see what everyone else is up to!
