We are BAGS and proud of it...

You are in for a WOOLIE treat this morning as there was a meeting of THE BAGS!  Yes, the 'Five Bags Full' met...we shopped, shared, laughed and of course ate a wonderful lunch, before heading home with wild and wonderful, woolie thoughts dancing in our heads!  Our 'monthly' truly inspires us to keep on stitching!

Sandy outdid herself with her wee bowl fillers...Fall/Halloween is the theme...I can't remember the patterns...but this is a favourite of mine!  So cute!

I think this is a Buttermilk Basin...dang sweet!
 And together they are adorable!
 Here's Claire's....
 Aren't they SPOOK-tacular!  All are from Buttermilk Basin patterns.  No one designs like the incredible Stacy West!  WOW!
 And some close-ups of her perfect workmanship...

 Just BOOtiful!

And just look at Claire's little framed wool stitchery!  STUNNING!  The pattern was free from one of this years' bloghops!  SEW perfect in a wee frame!

And this is a WIP...a Buttermilk Basin pattern!  Dang sweet!


As you know, Glynis is no slouch...She finished her Cheri Payne BOM...DDG! (drop dead gorgeous!) I forgot to take close-ups...but I'm sure she will bring it to Heritage for sharing, once it's quilted!  Stay tuned...

 Glynis made two of the SWEETEST mats...one for Winter...
 And one for Fall!  Both are gorgeous!  The patterns (Canning Jar Bouquets) are hot off the press and can be found over at Wooden Spools' website!  Would you believe that for $9 you can get all FOUR mat patterns...one for each season!  Just go HERE to order!
And a close-up of her gorgeous work!

 Love the oak leaves and fancy stitches on her wee bowl filler!  Like icing on the cake!

 And last but not least,  Julie created this lovely heart pillow which she hangs on a special stand made especially for it! Very sweet!

So there you have it...our Show and Tell for October (In case you missed it, my sharing was done HERE:o)  ...

SEW...were YOU inspired enough to get out your bins of wool and patterns?  I know I was!...Man, it's hard to keep up with these BAGS!  (haha...I love our name!!)  We are BAGS and proud of it!

Have a terrific Tuesday and happy stitching!~P


  1. My goodness, makes me want to pull out the wool bins again, and I just put them away!!
    Especially love that cute scarecrow. : )

  2. Woolly and wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow! Another show stopping display from the Island "Woolies"! You are such an industrious group! Keep them coming! Beautiful!!

  4. Paulette maravillosos trabajos
    me encanta el otoño y todos sus colores
    gracias por compartir

  5. Another wow from me, wonderful pieces and I love the rich colors in the fall pieces. I still need to finish my last block and do the cabin blocks.


  6. Great projects. Makes me want to put my wool AWAY because mine don't ever look anything like that. Just kidding... I'm doing some wool appliqué now from Primitive Gatherings. Love Buttermilk Basin, though!! And Love your group's name.

  7. The Five Bags Full are phenomenal. Isn't great to have such fun friends to hangout with.

  8. Those pillows are amazing--I LOVE them!

  9. The Boo made with the ghosts is my favorite! I don't remember seeing this pattern.

  10. What a wonderful set of projects! It must be so fun to get them all together like this. Great job, everyone! :D
