Finished Projects and a Great Giveaway

I was reading some of my favorite blogs and came across great giveaway.  Shellagh of Ticking and Toile is having a Cabbage & Roses giveaway, Here.   If you like country you will enjoy the interview with Christina Strutt of Cabbage & Roses, the author of  At Home with Country

Take a look by clicking above or the Ticking and Toile button on my sidebar.

I wanted to update you on a couple of the projects I have been working on.  First I will mention the crocheted throw that I had started just before I started blogging.  It is now complete and covering my husbands chair in our bedroom.  The only problem is every time I look at the throw I am reminded that the chair needs recovering or a slipcover. That is a project that has been on my list of things to do for longer than I want to tell.  Here is the link to my post about beginning it and this is the finished project.

The upholstery on the chair is a bright orange. 
The chair is quite comfy though.

Another project that I just finished was two more of the 18 or so cloth bags I have made.  I was making one of them for a special friend who happens to share a birthday with me.  I found this pattern in a Crafts 'n Things magazine in October 2007.  I have used the 45" wide home decor fabric from JoAnn's because I like the weight and it is easy to find fabrics in colors that blend.  I have given many away over the past 3 years but the blue one in the pictures I decided to keep

this on belongs to my dear friend Jen
this is the one I use  


  1. Hello
    Love your bags! They are fabulous...
    Always feels good to finish a project!
    Many Blessings

  2. Sherry, you are such a blessing to me. I cannot tell you how many times I thank God for you {and Pastor} for everything.
    Like I already mentioned, I cried when I opened the gift. I had been wanting one of these bags since you first made them but never wanted to ask for one. I LOVE handmade things and it means so much to me.
    I love you!!!
