Thanks for your patience with the winner!  I put everyone's name into a spreadsheet so I could randomly generate a number.  I don't like picking a winner because I want everyone to win.  Seriously, if I could think up a contest where everyone got  a prize, I would.  I don't think it would be a bag though... ;)

SO, talking on the phone to my husband, he volunteered to pick a number.  He picked the number 37 which, on my spread sheet, was SARAH  from Dandelions and Daffodils!  Sarah is a very loyal blog follower and fellow New Englander!  So, congratulations, Sarah!  Email me your address and I'll ship the bag out to you!

I'm going to have giveaways more frequently because I really really like giving things away.  Thanks again for following.  If I haven't followed your blog, I will.  I'm slowly and surely adding them all to my blog list.  I get very side tracked when I try to do that! 

Good Night from Keri, Josh (the random integer generator), and Levi
 (Oh yeah, I wanted to show you how helpful Levi was earlier when I was photographing the bag!)
So helpful!

100 Followers Giveaway

I'm grateful to have one hundred people following my blog!  Well, one hundred and five currently!  I'm posting the prize now and I'll post the winner when I get home from church this evening.  If someone doesn't claim the prize, then I'll pick another winner later.   Here's the prize: 

It's another bag from the Anna Maria Horner multitasker tote pattern!  
It's made of some pretty blue damask, striped pockets and lining, and green floral handles.
The outside sports 4 pockets and the inside, two.
It could be a great gym bag, diaper bag (possibly, unless you like yours to close, then, no, because this one doesn't close), multipurpose bag, or as my friend Mary has planned, a nice knitting bag!  

I actually like this one better than the last one I made, but I took myself out of the running (although I WAS one of the first 100 followers) because it seemed to defeat the purpose of having a giveaway in the first place if I actually won it.  In case you are wondering, I took the first 101 people and eliminated me.  My husband is still in there though.  Maybe if he wins, he'll give it to me!  Okay, he's not going to win either.  I better just make myself another bag.

So, tonight, sometime after 9:00 PM Eastern time, winner.  Right now, lots of other projects!  Until tonight!

Multitasker Tote - Anna Maria Horner Pattern

Bonjour blogland!  I've been hard at work on some things, out of sorts at times lately, and very guilty about not blogging more.  I love my little blog.  Here is one project that I decided to make for myself:  Anna Maria Horner's Multitasker Tote:

(I appreciate all of you kind readers ignoring the messy floor, ribbon bursting out of the ribbon jar and other ugly things in this picture!)
I actually did a step by step photo journey as I made it, but I will post that soon.  I definitely liked this pattern and would recommend it.  I was just trying out the pattern, so I used some stash fabric (teal corduroy, Anna Maria Horner for the outside pockets and straps, and some Amy Butler for the lining).

 I'm nearing 100 followers and I promised a giveaway when I got to 100, so you might see this bag pop up again in another fabric combination!  Muahahahha!
