FTAGH

Merry Christmas everyone!

In celebration of the season, 

I would like one of my followers to have 

this!


In the recent Mouthy Stitches swap I made two tote    

bags....

So this one is FTAGH...

(free to a good home)


The lining is a little bit of a surprise!

You get a bit of a peek at the bright yellow...


If you would like this to come and live in your house, 

leave a comment on this post....

telling me your sewing intentions for 2013,

or what fabric you think everyone will be buying in  

the New Year!


I will draw a winner in about a week, when I come 

back to do a re-cap of my makes for 2012.

Until then, have a wonderful Christmas and time with 

family and friends...

Thank you for being an important part of my little 

corner of blogland!

SUZ

Giveaway now closed....winner announced soon!

  2. It's fab Suz! I have a long list of wips I'd like to knock over next year, and about a gazillion projects in my head busting to get made. Definitely architextures on my most wanted list for next year! Merry Christmas x

  3. What a generous giveaway.
    I am looking forward to designing some more paper pieced blocks next year and I am really looking forward to some relaxed sewing time so that I can work on a vanity case that I have already made a prototype for.

  4. Ooh ooh, me me me!!! *Lol!* This is *such* a Gorgeous bag!!! ... Okay, this coming year I have decided to pull back from swap commitments (bye-bye QBSA...) and focus on making some items for us here at home and gifts for specific individuals ... I would really like to finish off my SKoW quilt as soon as possible ... I would love to make both my daughter and myself a quilt each of our own (the Once Upon a Time quilt for my daughter, and a Swoon quilt for me), plus there are a couple of others I'd like to consider ... I also would love to make myself a bag to replace the old one I am currently using (which is falling apart at the seams!) ... and I'd like to get on top of making some hand-made Christmas presents throughout the year, rahter than stressing about it right at the last second!!

  5. Oh my house is a good home!! Just think of all the adventures it would have around France!! I am going to become a Great Great Aunt in April 2013 so I will be making a quilt for the new arrival. Merry Christmas! Hugs Linda xx

  6. Great bag and some great stitching! Well, in 2013 I am going to sew more and blog much, much more! I want to challenge myself with my quilting!

  7. Fun! I just want to sew as much as I can next year! And of course finish a few wips!

  8. What a generous giveaway! Thanks. Next year I intend to do some sewing. Returning to work as a teacher 3-4 days a week with three kids aged 3-9 has severely cut sewing time back! So anytime I can get in the sewing room I'll use. I think everyone will be buying Noteworthy by Sweetwater and Notting Hill as well.

  9. Next year I will be stash-busting!!
    Loved this bag when you made it - it would be welcome here any time!

  10. Great bag! My intentions for 2013 are to try and use up a bit of my stash. I need to make a dent in it. I think I've done enough for the global economy now (or so my husband tells me!)

  11. I would love that bag to live at my house, it is lovely. Next year I am going to try to finish all my favourite projects and work on a whole bunch of new improv ones. And make a bunch of quilts. And learn more about fmq. Have a wonderful holiday!

  16. Suz, I can't believe you are giving away this amazing bag!!
    In 2013 I want to be more productive with my quilts. I want to stick to the deadlines I set myself and not have these WIPs languishing on my table taking up space and never actually progressing.
    My thing I want to make is a quilt for my sister. It'll be a queen size monitor, but hopefully pretty :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. This bag is amazing, and I really love the fabrics you used! My goal for 2013 (at least the first half) is to make quilts for all the beds in my house. I think thiswill be an effective way to use up some of my stash and pretty up my home! Thanks for an amazing giveaway!

  18. What a fabulous bag!! I would not only love to give this beautiful bag a loving home, I would put it to good use every time I go to the store!! My 2013 intentions are to use my overflowing stash to make several quilts for a local home for teenagers in foster care. And of couse to finish those UFO's!! (No wait, that is my New Years Resolution!)

  19. What a great bag! I am going to finish a dress I started a year ago, and make some snack holders for my kids. I also would like to get more fabric with words on it, but I'm picky. Love a great subtle text fabric!

  20. Fabulous bag! I'd love to try a circle of geese!
    Next year I want to finish off several UFOs and start my 'swoon' quilt!

  21. It's totally gorgeous! I don't even know where to start with my 2013 sewing intentions - I have so many things I want to do. This year I think I got better at pushing through and actually completing projects - I would like to continue with that trend! Also, lots more FMQ.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Merry Christmas Suz! I think I've decided to pay homage to my investment in quilting books - and actually start making quilts out of them. Sort of like - pick a book - make a quilt. Bust the stash... finish those WIP's... sounds like I'm going to be busy!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh my goodness Suz.. what an amazing giftie for someone.... now I have to think about my intentions!!!! well.... I need to finish off some things.... but I really would like to work on making some pretty mini quilts...

  27. What a gorgeous bag. My attempt at a circle of geese is still staring at me pitifully as I ignore trying to put it together!
    I just saw Lori Holt's new range called bake sale with lots of cute mixing bowls, recipe text fabric and old fashioned tablecloth prints - I think that will be pretty popular!

  28. I would love that bag to hold some of my wips that are waiting to be crocheted. As far as sewing, I am getting a niece in April and I am working things to decorate my niece's bedroom. It is so exciting to be an auntie for the first time and to a girl no less!

  29. Oh I would love to give this bag a new home. My sewing goal for 2013 is to make some quilts for charity. NICU and Cot Quilts. Have a great Xmas and new year, hugs

  31. Gorgeous bag Suz! Im planning to follow my recently adopted theme of exploring 'everything old is new again'. Plus in looking for my christmas scraps I realised I have far too many wips so I'm making a list of 'jbs to finish'.
    Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and Love and Peace follow you all through 2013 and beyond.

  35. This is such a gorgeous bag. My sewing aims for 2013 are to make two mini quilts for my sisters-in-law. I think I will try to follow patterns for these, which I haven't tried before. I also would like to try to make my first tote.

  36. I loved this bag when you first posted about the swap - how lovely of you to share with a lucky follower! I'm really looking forward to buying some yardage of Architextures in the New Year. Merry Christmas!

  37. You are so generous Suze!
    Hmmm... my sewing intentions for 2013 would start with making another quilt for our bed. Then a full sized one for Miss Abbie.
    After that it's anyone's guess... :)

  38. That is such a fabulous bag Suz! My intentions for 2013 are more quilts, more blogging and more fabric ( though I should be using more of my stash). I'm really excited about the Denyse Schmidt range coming out next year! Wishing you the Merriest of Christmases!!

  39. What a gorgeous bag you have made. There are 3 quilts I would like to make for my family which I have promised them awhile ago. I too plan to quilt the quilt top for my mother.

    Quilting is quite new to me.

    Merry Christmas.

  44. What a darling bag, Susan! Don't include me in the draw (postage to the US is just too dear), but I wanted to say how pretty it is. I love the colors and the big stitches that add so much to the finish. Very nicely done! I hope you've had a wonderful, blessed Christmas.

  45. Such a gorgeous bag Susan - love the yellow lining. The first thing I am planning to do so far in 2013 is to make a quilt for my husband for our 20th wedding anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ooh...I have to smile...if you knew how many times I have posted this pattern on my bucket list...I want to learn to make this...but I would absolutely adore having this one. Thank you for being so generous! I have been so inspired by all the wonderful blogs I read and I want to make my boss and his wife (aka my adopted mom/dad)a 50th wedding anniversary quilt. That will be my big project, but oh I have so many others I would like to get done this year. I have special babies coming this year, young couples getting married and people who have shown me so much love all year long. I just want to cover each of them with a quilt. I have no favorite fabrics, I love them all!

  47. top fabrics on my list right now are Glimma and Architextures

  49. My aim for 2013 is to start sewing again after a long break.
    I think 2013 will see navy making a comeback , I have noticed peeks of it appearing in new ranges.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Now, wouldn't that be the perfect bag for my take-along work! Everyone would see it and think I am more talented than I actually am!. Oh, but then I would have to confess...

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would love to give this bag a new home. You such beautiful work. 2013 is the year to stash bust.I plan to make my daughter a new quilt and her youngest son.

    ReplyDelete
  52. That's such a beautiful bag. My sewing intentions for 2013 are quite simple. I want to finish all my WIPS from 2012 before I start something new in 2013. If I can accomplish that, I will be quite happy.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I want to finish an I-spy quilt for my grandson this year, and finish all my WIPs! Love that bag you made, and would LOVE to cherish it and put it to good use!

  54. I'd like to make a quilt with my 5yards of rainbow charm squares....as I keep dipping into them for small projects.... And before I know it, they will be all gone!

  55. Oh what a cute tote bag..I love that circle of geese pattern. I have lots on my plate for 2013, many block swaps and Qal's, then of course wedding gifts and baby gifts to make..always plenty to do! Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Well, I know what fabric I'll be buying in the new year and I think everyone else should too.....hehe. Notting Hill by Joel Dewberry. I'm going to buy a bundle of it, a Chrstmas present to me from my hubby, I just haven't gotten around to ordering yet and my favourite shop has been closed over the holidays.

    Thanks for the chance to adopt this lovely tote!

  58. A gal can never have enough bags - and such a gorgeous one would be TERRIFIC!
    My intentions for 2013: There are a number of UFOs from 2012 I want to finish, incl. two king size bedquilts as presents for friends. For new things, I want to try to get more into art quilts and enter some challenges. Still looking for what "my thing" really is. I think it includes bright fabrics - and I am experimenting more with creating my own of that, unusual piecing - patterns that create a secondary pattern, wonky patterns or things that don't need to match, and definitely freemotionquilting.
    Fabrics: Selection in my area is rather limited and I am not very confident yet in buying online, but I will have to learn! Love batiks, next to bags this gal can never have enough of them (and shoes!), solids (moda marbles and just starting to get into kona solids), brights - any designer that catches my eye at the time.
    Happy New Year!!!

  60. My sewing intentions are to whip up a modern baby quilt, Amy Gibson's Perfect Prism with gray...:) for my niece's first baby, and the Madrona's Road Challenge.

Goal this year, work on next Christmas ASAP...:)

    ReplyDelete
  61. What a sweet tote! I'm planning on making a dent in my UFO pile that desperately needs tending to. I'll be on the lookout for more textiles to replenish my stash. Happy New Year and thanks sew much for this chance to win!
