Fall Into Fall Giveaway

It's finally time for the great Fall Into Fall Giveaway!  Everywhere you see this little guy:


you'll find a blogger giving away a prize, or two or three! 

I've joined the group and here's what I plan to give to some lucky winner.  :)

This is what I call an "Everything Bag."  It is about 18" x 21" and I made it from some beautiful pink and brown cotton fabrics.  I've made several and given away most of them - they've become a favorite among my family and friends.  One daughter uses hers for her knitting, another for her "everything I need to take to school today" bag (she's a librarian).  My aunt uses hers to carry her tape recorder and audio books (she's blind and reads all her books by listening) and my cousin takes her "stuff" to dialysis in her bag.  I used one recently as an overnight bag but truth be told, they are supposed to be grocery bags!  Since recycle is high on everyone's list it makes a much prettier one than the WalMart bags I currently use for that.  :)

I'm writing this post from a mission in south Louisiana where we've been volunteering for the last four months.  We will be returning home on October 1st - the day of the giveaway - but when I get there I'll be filling the bag up with goodies to make you smile.  I don't know exactly what but I'm sure it will include a little fabric, a quilting/stitching notion or two, a couple of patterns, the kitchen sink.  Oops, not the sink! 

I really, really would love it if you would follow my blog but that in no way will play a part in who wins.  I'm a little old fashioned so I'll just be putting all the names in a hat and drawing one out.  All you have to do is comment on this blog and be sure I have a way to contact you.  International bloggers are invited to participate too - the more the merrier!

Don't worry about postage to Japan, I've never won anything in my life!

Hope you have a safe return home. My dear friend comes to Japan for several month's mission now and then and though I know she is glad to return home, it is so sad to say good-bye.

I have several bags that I have made and are being used for a trip to the library, to carry my crochet, to carry my daughter’s books when we want to do our school work in town, or even to carry our lunch in if we go to the park. I have never used my bags for groceries, I’m just too busy using them for other things.

I love to use recylcing bags instead of getting those plactic bags. I always tell the checkout person to load up my bags. Your bag is just beautiful. I would love a chance to win it. Thanks for the giveaway.

I am entering for my daughter, her computer is down and she called and asked if once again I would enter her in contests, I couldn’t say no as she helps my wife and her mother with their charity quilting projects. I try to support them any way that I can, so here I am and I hope I am doing this right.
thank you for putting our name in your drawing. Florida area

Hello from Washington Dc.Wow! Congrats on the volunteering for 4 months in South Louisiana. Hope your time was wonderful (hard I know, but how wonderful too).
Thank you for the wonderful bag! From Walmart, grocery store, Library, 3 yr old's letter collection, the bag would come in handy. It's almost too pretty to use.
