"Now some Bags"

Hello Bloggers, there are a few out there not keeping so good just now.   Can I ask you to keep Anne (Redanne) Rita (RMG Creations) Hazel (BasketsOf Joy) in your thoughts and prayers.  Anne especially needs them at this time.  She has had a rather nasty fall and broken her hip.  Rita and her hubby are going through the wars at the moment.  Hazel has not been so good since she got back from her epic trip to Canada.  She has to get better we are off to Birmingham next week.....come on Sis!!!  I know there will lots more and I send you some (((((hugs))))).   The people I have mentioned are the ones I know about.
I have had a few questions and extra comments about my "Roses" on yesterdays Post.
Desiree can I ask you to e-mail me on where I can go more in depth to your question re:- pricing.
Susan, keep going with you Rose Creation Die it makes really nice Roses.  The only real difference between Blossom Five and it is the hole in the middle..................honestly!!!
Nattyboots keep at it you will get there
Oh! My! I have just noticed I have another new follower.  You are so welcome, I hope you enjoy what you see and call back again soon.
Went to Perth today to meet up with Hazel (who had to cancel) and a few of our friends.  We meet on a Wednesday for a few coffees and a good old Chin Wag.   My goodness it started out that everyone  had a problem, some real problems at that.    However once we had all talked them over we had a lot of laughs and we all went away far happier than when we first arrived.  See!! that`s what friends are all about.

No card again, just a few of the Bags I have made for our Craft Fair 
These bags are made from the card that Lidl were selling.  Hazel and I bought loads between us.  Very reasonable and excellent quality to work with.  They are bigger than A4, multiple sheets of each design, perfect for Bags.  Only downside is they are not double sided....but Hey! Ho! they still make wonderful projects.
The waste bits make the Roses.  I cut Roses out of all the waste bits, and just randomly used 3 on each bag.  Leaves are cut using a Crealies Die I got from Joanna Sheen`s website 
So far I have made and completed 11 Boxes using 12x12 card/paper from my stash
There are 6 Bags complete plus another 10 made up that need Roses made for them and attached

That`s it for today
Thank you so much for calling by and leaving all your wonderfull comments.  I really appreciate that you take the time to do that
Till next time

  1. Patricia, you are always so kind to us all, but I really feel I have turned a corner. I have been thinking of Anne all day and now I hear that Hazel is poorly as well. I hope she gets better soon before your trip. Now, on to those beautiful baskets. You make them so look so professional too. Hugs Rita xxxx

  9. More great bags Patricia. So many people unwell. Hope everybody is soon on the mend. Love and hugs Christine xx

  10. More lovely bags and hugs to all those who are poorly, I had no idea Anne broke her hip, oh dear I will have to contact her, hugs Carole Z X

  11. Morning Patricia, Lots of love and thoughts for a speedy recovery to All who are sick.
    Your bags are gorgeous, loving all the adornments, as ever your flowers are magnificent.
    I made my first origami box yesterday, it just needs the embellishment decoration now. It was hilarious because I was waiting for a delivery, so brought my craft stuff downstairs (so I wouldn't miss the door) and my laptop was next to me and I was trying to craft along with Christina, but kept having to 'pause' her whilst rushing back upstairs to craft room for more items needed. It was like a 'Carry On' film but did lots of 'step' exercises ha ha. The box turned out really good, although I was thinking I would put a 'bottom' on it to hide the fold under points, and have just checked on your pics from yesterday and you have done that too. I have no doubt that my second attempt will be much faster than the first ha ha.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  12. Hello Patricia, more stunning gift bags, always love looking at them. Gorgeous papers, have a lovely day, hugs Kate X
