Tote Bags

Yeah..... Halloween Tote Bag Partners are now assigned.. if you have any questions please feel free to send me an email...
Now on to other good stuff .... Please notice there are only two spaces left in the Christmas block swap... Hurry Hurry get off the fence and decide.... Lets get the list filled and close the sign ups ;)

What has APP been up to the last two days on her days off???
App has been up to tons of stuff...
Moved some furniture around the house....
Took more tubs with sewing to the attic storage.
Made the kitchen more user friendly. Changed somethings around in there ;)
I also cut and sewed up my 12 Butterfly Siggy Blocks for the swap that I am hosting on Patch Work Posse.
I have entered into a PVT Christmas Annie swap.. so I chopped out 4 Annie bodies sewed those parts and tea stained them.
To night I might stuff them :)
I need to get that done soon, so I can start painting on the stockings and shoes.
One of the extra Annie's is for Little Dirt Lanes Swap.
I also promised my Baby Sista a Red, White and Blue Annie Doll :)
That leaves an Extra... I want to make myself a Halloween Annie :)
Like the one that I made for Sandy S.. in last years Halloween Annie Swap :)
So ladies that is where the 4 Bodies are going to :)
Tried to decide on what apron pattern I am going to use in Sue Neitzel's apron swap...
No luck on that one.....
I also started on my Halloween Blocks.. I have all the fusible webbing on the selected fabrics..
Some of the pieces are cut out and just a few others to trace around and cut.
Then its tack them down on the fabric blocks.
I started.... and finished an applique Block for my 2nd tote bag too...
So you can see APP was sort of a lazy soul this weekend!!
Oh yes forgot put out a new dog feeder for the Tonk Tonk Ba Donka Donk :)
His old one rusted through... so this time
the Mommie put it up on one of those stone pavers
hoping to save this one from rusting out ;)
The other one only lasted about 3 years.. That's not good some of the feeders around here....have been around for almost 15 yrs. I know part of the problem with Tonk's feeder.. he is always playing in the water making the ground wet and muddy... things never seem to dry out in his kennel.
OH no that mean ole APP... say's get back to work!!!
I guess the break is over!!!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

Oh goodie! I finished mine Saturday night and I'm so excited to give it away!


Doris Sturm said...

Oh, I remember this now - this is where you said they had to be sewn and not crocheted.

Hope you're feeling well and hugs to your little Miss Pitty Pat too :-)

With Love,
Doris and Gizzy

p.s. are you still chatting on Saturday nights? I need to check to see if my computer will let me do this again...

Teresa aka MarieSews said...

Can I sign up for the christmas block swap?! sorry I missed the halloween one...vacation was busy busy busy!

Doris Sturm said...

The next swap for the Christmas bags will they be only for the sewers again or can I play too this time? I will be sad if I can't because I just love, love, LOVE Christmas!!!!= (I still have my tree up - albeit in the bedroom where nobody can see it.)

Cassy said...
