2 Bags for Me!!!

 Do you ever get really excited before going on a trip? I do. I sure was today! I had all this nervous energy, so I got up early and cleaned the house....then the kids got up and had breakfast and dashed off to school, so I cleaned the house again...but then what? I could go shopping...but I want to save my money for market! I know...I will make myself a bag for market! So I did....in fact I made 2. I have been meaning to make myself a new Stu and Molly for years (my other Stu is 5 years old and my Molly is 6).

 This is my Molly. I wanted a shallow one, for quick trips or date night. I used mostly Denyse Schmidt fabric from her newest line for Jo Anns. I love it. I have had this fabric folded up and laid aside since I bought it. I think it looks great with the ACU.

 This is the back of my Stu tote. Yes, I know I got a bit carried away with the quilting, but I like it.

 The sides are scrappy pieced and I love them!

 There are 5 pockets inside, so lots of little spots to loose things, right?

So here is the last thing before I go pack. I finished this quilt last night. It is for Katy. I am delivering it to her at Market in Houston. She made the top, I just quilted it for her.

Have a happy weekend! I will have Market pictures!

xo,
Tia

It still amazes me how beautifully you combine army fabrics with florals and whimsy, I would never have guessed it could work so well, you are a genius! LOVE these bags!

Your bags are so awesome, I might just have to enlist!
Katy's quilt looks fabulous! She is one of my favorite blogarinas. Please give her a wave from me!
