Recently I have found myself making a couple of small projects. At the September meeting of the Quilt Connection Guild our newly elected president Linda R. asked us each to take a small brown bag home with us. During the month we were to fill it with something fall-related. It didn’t have to be quilt related, but we could spend no more than $5. We were also encouraged to use part of this budget to decorate the bag. At the October meeting we had the brown bag exchange.
I l keep a small stock of coffee cups in my studio. When I see one that I like and it is $4 or less I will buy it for my cup stash. I picked out a fall-colored mug and used that mug as inspiration for a quick mug rug. The recipient (Mary H.) said that she loved her gift.
The contents of my bag were from Ana S. It was filled with lots of goodies! A cute pin cushion, and handmade needle case and a fat quarter. Also, a large flower pin was used to decorate the bag.
I hope all who participated in the brown bag exchange were pleased with what they received. It was a fun activity.
