I just can't help myself!
I am so addicted to making these hanging bags! I dug through some of my old quilts and found this piece I made in 2007 for the Sewing Expo here in Michigan. It's called Burlesque Beauties and I thought it would make a nice larger hanging bag.
This is a closeup of the piece. The beads hang down which for a hanging bag are perfect, right!
I think it will make a nice gift to put a bottle of wine in for a housewarming. Then folks can hang the bag if they choose to or regift themselves!
And on a side note...on Sunday's I try to meet up with my buddy, Mary, at the Farmer's Market in Grand Blanc. Yesterday, I noticed a new vendor and was drawn to her booth...yes, it was a candy booth! BUT....they turned out to be caramels. Now I'm not a huge fan of just caramels...they get stuck in your teeth and they aren't chocolate! Again, BUT...Cream & Caramels are the BEST!!! They melt in your mouth and Catherine has assorted blends of her caramels....Spiced chocolate, honey pecan, cherry...just to name a few! She also had a caramel sauce I had to buy and last night I ended up dipping some pretzels in it! Oh my gosh...talk about delicious!!! I'm in trouble now!!! I couldn't find a web site for Catherine but you can find her on FB here or email her @ email@example.com
And yes, I'm now on FB too!!! Not sure why that happened but I did take the plunge. Kinda fun actually as I've located a few folks I went to high school with and folks I used to work with.
