Bloggers I love to know

I am a huge fan of Emily Parson....love her quilts, her sense of color, and all of her sewing tips. So I was browsing around on her blog a few weeks ago and came across her market bag tutorial.

Emily had developed her pattern using cute dishtowels. I decided to adapt her pattern and use some coordinating home dec fabrics that I found on sale. I made this one this afternoon, adding pockets both inside and out:

I forgot to mention that these guys are reversible! Aren't they cute!!!! Thanks Emily.

I made the one below before we went on vacation, and used it almost daily carrying my "stuff" to and from the boat dock. That was when I decided that I wanted pockets, just to keep the little guys, like pens, pencils and cell phones, organized and off of the bottom of the bag.

I am also a fan of Joyce DeBreuil, and while catching up on reading her blog yesterday afternoon I was shocked and pleased to learn that she had nominated me for the nice blogger award.

The award states: "This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also, for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you've been awarded please pass it on to 7 others who you feel are deserving of this award."

I hope this isn't a cop out, but I feel like every one of you who reads and comments on my blog is a recipient of this award..........so consider yourself tagged and head off to name your 7 others! Thank you Joyce!

That's it for today. Hope you've had a good one too.

The bags look really nice. I have been on a bag making binge lately too in spite of having more bags than I could ever use. At least I always have gifts on hand.

I love Emily too! and I love having one of her bags that I use for my knitting.

Your bag came out so cute. I love the striped lining.
