Favorite Blogs

I am very new to the blogging world. I spend so much time looking at all the great bogs and being filled with ideas that I forget to update mine. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite blogs that I enjoy gettting great quilting ideas from. The link below is for the most recent post.
Today they posted a great gift bag made by a fabulous quilter named Kimberly Walus. She also has a very fun blog that I just came across this week. I have added ot to my list of blogs to follow so I can glean from her wealth of ideas. If you have the time you should check her blog out also. She is having a giveaway right now for a cute gift bag.
Our family has been making gift bags to use at Christmas for the last few years. We use very little wrapping paper. This was Roger's idea a few years ago becaus ehe thought it was a waste all the paper and tape we used at holidays to just be thrown away. I think this bag would be great for replacing the gift bags we use to give gifts to others. These would be easy to make a few in holiday fabrics to have on hand. I think it makes the gift extra special. I hope to make one in a few days and post a pic along with pics of our gift bags we use each year.
