Non bloggers anonymous

Hello my name is Chocolate Chip Addict, and I am a non blogger.  Ha!  Has it truly been over 6 months since I last blogged?

Since January, I have been doing a lot of craft sewing, and some quilting.  Along with working full time and spending weekends with my college kids who come home.  Who knew that when I began quilting that it would lead to me becoming a "bag lady"?  It seems that I just can't do enough tote bags, cosmetic sized bags, and purses.  Every time one is finished, an idea strikes for another.  Here are my finishes for January - June.

Thanks to my daughter who is the lovely model.

Next came a set for a colleague from work who was retiring.

Then a cosmetic bag for a friend going on vacation.......

And finally, a purse for myself that was an experimental variation from a well used pattern.  Please excuse the junky cellphone picture.

In between these bag projects, a friend and I took a class at my local quilt shop for a Kaffe Fassett designed quilt, and also used mostly his fabric for the centers.  Here it is in the flimsy stage.

All in all, a good start for the first half of 2013!
