Buckets of Totes

Here they are! I worked till after dark to finish up 2 more of the middle bag, that I'll call the teal crewel. I'll have you know that I broke 2 needles on those bags! Which is kind of scary! First I worry about myself, than I worry that I might have broke my machine and if that happened, I'd cry! What would I do without my machine!? Yeah, Yeah, I have others, but this is my favorite machine! It's so fast and it does everything, even the quilting. So I don't want to have to go without it.
So here is how it goes. I have 1 bag of each kind, pictured above. They are all a little different from the next.
The Black toile...
The Teal crewel...
And the Green crewel.
So leave me a message, on this post, and tell me your News Years resolution. I will pick 3 winners on Monday. Anyone can play, that means any of you overseas girls.
Good luck!
Take care, Brandie

That's a tough one because I have so many goals I'd like to achieve. I guess the one that is really important just as right this, right now...I want to be able to make beautiful freehand feathers on my new LA. I'm going to make that my main practice (obsession) this year!!

Brandie, your bags are so beautiful. You have an amazing talent!! I don't think I could pick a favorite, but I am especially fond of Teal Crewel!! Gorgeous! Thanks for the awesome opportunity.

I didn't realise you were making the totes for a giveaway, they are gorgeous and I'd love to win one!! My New Years resolution is simply to 'live' , oh and I'd like to have a little more finishes this year!!!

Brandie, I really like your bucket bag design, and that the inside of the first toile one is right side up for looking into, lol! No mistakes just design alterations :o)

I don't make resolutions really, but I have decided to set a few goals. First is to finish some projects, second is to not go fabric shopping just for fun...unless it is absolutely necessary (and with all of the fabric in this house I don't think necessary will happen this year). I know this will be a hard one for me and I don't plan on being public about it, but to just write how much I buy in my pocket calendar. Then I can keep track. I have a friend that belongs to a stash busters on line group and does a weekly accounting on her blog of how much she buys and uses each week. She managed to use 100.25 yards more than she bought in 2010!!! She does have a small quilting machine, and manages her time well.

Congratulations on finding a boutique to sell your wares!

Oh my goodness! Could I possibly get lucky enough to win another bag from you!! They are wonderful Brandie!!
Not quilt related but I hope to be nicer to people. OK, so I probably failed already because I remember yelling at cars that were driving too slow this morning! LOL

ranette said...

I LOVE the bags....and again..How do you get soooo much done???? I'd love to win one for sure!

I don't make resolutions, but my plan this year to is to outside of my comfort zone more and I started off by entering a quilt in the OKC Winter quilt show...yikes, scary!

Jacque said...

They are BEAUTIFUL!!!!! All three are just so cute! But my favorite is the green crewel one.

My new year resolution is to be more organized with my life. Getting the things I have to do done, so I can have more time to sew.:O)

Lee said...

Hi Brandie - Darn! Forgot about the guild meeting. The holidays have be off my schedule. My new year's resolution - easy! The same one I've have each and every year for the last 5+ years: organizing my recipes. A frightful task.

wendy said...

hi Brandie, the bags are all beautiful. I would love to win one sooo much!
My New Year resolution is to use everything from my freezer, ( I work in a farm shop!). Then maybe I would have more money to spend on old sewing machines. See my blog I am obsessed LOL.
Happy New Year to you all.

I'm glad I popped back as I thought I had left a comment here. Love the bags, they are wonderful. I am trying to work on more projects that have already been started and also to have more fun this year. I'm trying to live by the "get up, dress up, and show up" motto. So I booked a trip to NYC yesterday!
