Oh no, I promise you that I have not turned into a bag lady. It's just that right now when I have so little time to spend in my sewing room....a quick 15 minute craft is all I am up for. These gift bags take about that much time. I promise you (and I promise myself) that as soon as cold weather arrives, I will be much craftier. Also until that time I must finish a quilt for a friend (no, Julie, I have not forgotten). So I guess for now......bag lady.
