Sew Together Bag

I finally after years of wanting another Sew Together Bag, Pattern by @sewdemented on Instagram  started one on yesterday! You can find the .pdf pattern in Michelle’s IG profile or purchase a paper copy in a quilt store or online at Fat Quarter Shop

I bought the pattern 2 summers ago and found it intimidating so I decided to check YouTube and I found Margaret’s video which took the intimidation away! She is very personable and goes through set by step!  You have to still buy the pattern because she gives no dimensions!

You can find Margaret online Margaret of MMQ https://youtu.be/Lrvud8RWFIU



Here is my progress


I am doing it all in Alison Glass Fabric! Hope to finish it today! What are you sewing? Does a pattern ever intimidate you? Leave a comment!

Big hugs! Lisa

September 11, 2018


17 years ago today America was attacked by Terrorist! 
 I still feel like it was yesterday! So much harm was done in one day to the American way of life.  It is still hard to put into words the anger I still feel today! I hope 
we are safer today than we where then!

Safeguards are in place so it cannot happen again! 

But if we forget the past, and don’t remain vigilant, it could happen in the future!

Take time today to research September 11, 2001, if you where little and don’t remember!  Those who remember please never forget what 
this country has been through!

Say a prayer for all those who lost their lives and their families who still struggle with the loss of their family member! Because it never ends for them!

Say another pray for all those First Responders who died or where injured trying to save lives! There where so many who didn’t even know what was happening and ran to do their jobs no matter what it cost them! Their families are still left without their loved ones! 

Thousands died that day right here in America!  So let it not be forgotten!



This may not be much of tribute but a reminder to know the history of our country! Watch a video from that day, they are all over the internet! Yes it will make you uncomfortable it should! So you know why we have to keep our country safe and have Military to guard our borders and beyond! Know why our airports pull random people for  inspection! Be grateful they do!
