I am... & I admit it
but I have 2 problems...
1. I don't need any more bags
2. I usually can't give them away once I make them
edit: i have trouble giving them away because i can't let go of them... not because people don't want them!!
I did give this one away.
My friend Liz had been admiring my birdie sling since I made my first one. In January of 2010 I bought fabric to make 3 more birdie slings. (I was on a roll.) I cut all the pieced out in January and then did very little on them till the end of last year. I finished one in November and decided I'd make one of the remaining two for Liz. She loves pockets so I added a lot of them. One side has drop in pockets and the other side has a zipper.
Here is another peek at the inside.
Some of the other bags I made last year...
My first birdie sling
and there are many many more.
I probably shouldn't make any bags this year, but I know that isn't going to happen. I have a few new Lazy bags in the works and I did get Amy Butler's new book at the end of last year.
...and then I found this.
Style Stitches Monthly Bag Challenge 2011
12 months... 17 bags
and i was hooked.
So I have lots of things I need to do today, but instead I'm going to spend the day sewing bags with friends because it is what I want to do.
...have you thought recently about your needs and wants?
Tara got me thinking... and today I need to sew a bag & I need to spend time with my friends... sometimes what I think I want is what I really need.
