29 AND STILL COUNTING






















Update on the Bags..I now have 29 finished (and just have to put the straps on another one I am making to keep).....I think I will stop at 35 and then finish my pic cushions I started and the Church dolls. Whatever is left after the sale on the 27th will go in my etsy shop. I have just about every theme and color to suit anyone and have high hopes that most of them will be gone. I have also started some from Muslin and they will be Primitive and have my special coffee solution with vanilla and cinnamon..then baked in my oven for that extra special prim look...looks like they could have been laying in a trunk in Great Grandmothers attic for 100 years. I'm sure that the Pioneers did use cloth bags when they went to the market and I'm sure they made their own from feed sacks or pretty fabric they bought on their monthly trip to town...no plastic or paper bags in the Pioneer day...not so much waste and definately going green. Be sure and leave a comment and let me know what you think. There are of course some in the post right before this one and you will not see all 29 because I have made some that are doubles.
