Finishes this week...

...I'm linking up with Amanda Jean at crazy mom quilts.

...finish #1
a Tammy Bag made with 6" handles
 and two more that will be exactly the same that I hope to finish next week.

...finish #2
another Tammy Bag
and I have  a second one with the same pink ribbon fabric just waiting for the handle.

If you are interested in making a Tammy Bag you can get the pattern from
Madam's in her Craftsy Shop.
Check out Madam Samm's Pinterest page of Tammy Bags.
I just luv my wee gingham bear...hand made and signed by the bear artist.
She is jointed and stands only 3-1/4" tall. 3rd finish is made from orphan blocks made into a quilt top.
A 'mystery' person placed the quilt top on the Safe House table in hopes 
that someone would take it home ...quilt, bind and label it.
It is ready to take to the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild meeting on September 21st.
The 'mystery' person who stitched the blocks together was very creative...
I have another one to quilt but it will be for the November meeting.
I also made my last batch of hamburger relish.

...a reminder of my
September giveaway.

 I have another hand embroidered designs by Michelle Ridgway to giveaway.

I will pick the winner September 30th from all comments on my 
September blog postings.
The more postings you comment on in September ...
the more chances you have to win. 

till next time and 
happy stitching


  1. Oh my were really, really busy! Love the Tammy bags...the frames intimidate me so I would rather see your bags than try to make my own! The quilt looks great in your garden. Wonderful stitchery to giveaway. Thanks for the chance!

  2. I'm like Lesley. I love the look of your bags, but those frames are scary. So are zips come to that, so I just can't make bags!!

  3. Love those bags Pauline - where are you getting your handles? blessings, marlene

  4. Cute bag! I want to try making one of those.

  5. Wow! you managed to finish quite a few projects. Your Tammy bags are so cute.

  6. Those are some cute bags! I may have to give in and try one!
    You have been busy with a little of everything it looks like ;-)

  7. If that quilt (top) needs a good home, i will take it, love it, quilt it and donate to charity blessings, Barbara babscorbitt@ gmail dot com

  16. Your Tammy bags are lovely Pauline. As is your quilt. Great finishes!

  17. You are super busy again. I always love to see what you are up to. The Tammy bags are delightful and the fabrics you have chosen are lovely.
    That's an interesting idea to have a swap table - so good of you to take the top to quilt. It looks pretty. It looks like you and your long arm are working very well together!
