I love to create!I shared about your giveaway here: I’m also linked to Debi’s carnival! (also posted on my Joyful Finds contest/giveaway page)Have A Happy Day!Deborah @ A Cup Of

  3. What a wonderful bag!I love everything about quilting, the fabric, the colors, the designs,the cutting and piecing (by machine or hand), the quilting (machine or hand) the binding, the giving or keeping, the snuggling under or hanging on the wall. The whole process is my escape and my sanity and connects me with past generations.Sue Cahill (sbonetsue at yahoo dot com)

  4. Oooo, a surprise, that’s fun! My favorite thing about quilting is making something useful with my own hands that has a daily purpose but has memories associated with it.doot65{at}comcast[dot]netElizabeth

  5. My favorite things about quilting has to be the fabrics. I LOVE fabrics, and every time I go into a quilt shop, I swear the fabrics just keep getting better and better! Hope I’m the lucky one. Thanks for hosting a give-away. Sue

  6. I love it when the little pieces I have cut out become a block, especially when all the points are there and the seams line up. LOL Cute bag. Please enter me in your give away.Winona

  7. I love the bags that you made. My favourite part of crafting is sitting in my comfy chair in the evening doing some knitting or stitching. Anything to keep my hands busy.

  8. I love crafting because of the creative outlet it provides and the satisfaction and sense of accomplishment of creating something beautiful. And the process is fun, too!!

  9. My favorite thing about quilting is that it’s something that I can do alone, or with others at retreats, quilt guilds, etc. It opens up a whole world of friends and yet gives you that “me” time that we all need.

  10. I love your blog!! Your bags are so cute so please count me in! My favorite thing about quilting is giving them away – makes me feel good to see people happy with your work.

  11. Your bag is so sweet please enter me to win. I love fabric and I love the dream or look forward to what I want to make. Each magazine seems to bring a new “to do” and I love to think of my quilts being enjoyed by family after I’ve gone to heaven. Angie

  12. Thanks for playing along with the giveaway. I love the bag; it would be very happy living at home with ME. I enjoy quilting because it makes me feel good to make something with my hands and it’s a very relaxing pastime.

  13. Cute bags! My favorite thing about quilting/crafting is making boutique outfits for my DD and watching her dance and prance around in her new outfit knowing that I made it for her!!

  14. My favorite thing about quilting is the binding portion. I love the fact that when the binding is done i am finished with the quilt. It’s also very relaxing. I love the bags, hope I win!Joycejoycee2561 at yahoo dot com

  15. Oh, pick me…pick me! My favorite thing about crafting is how much the people that receive my cards/scrapbooks/whatever enjoy them! It is truly a blessing!

  16. I love that I can stay at home, caring for family and still be able to enjoy my hobby. I love the feel of fabric, the surprise of seeing the quilt turn out better than you dreamed and the looks on people’s faces when you give them a quilt and tell them, “I made it for you.”

  17. love your bags you made! Very cute and creative!!oh you are so brave to do the extra chances thing… I thought about it but figured the whole point of “fall into fall” blog was to have all the listing together and since we are all viisting all the ones listed it’s sorta silly to make eveyone post them on their blogs… so just enter me once please πŸ˜‰ thanks

  18. What a great giveaway!! The thing I love about crafting is starting with “parts” and ending up with something wonderfully “whole”. I mean when you start a craft project (mine is usually stitching), you start with a blank slate or just the component parts to create something and when you finish, you have something that “never was” before. How cool is that? I love seeing the design begin to take shape on a canvas or piece of fabric. Thanks for entering me in your giveaway!! brdstitcher at gmail dot com

  19. I love two things…when you can see something actually coming together I just love looking at it (and making my hubby look at it too!) But I also love being able to give something away when it is a gift. Very fun!Debi’s giveaway is so fun I listed it in my blogroll!

  20. What a cute bag. I love the flowers that you added. Favorite thing about crafting is the satisfaction of seeing a project turn out well and giving it as a gift. I do have Debi’s link on my blog as I, too, am participating. Have fun. This is great.

  21. Cute bags!!! I love everything “green these days”. I don’t use the paper or plastic from the grocery store anymore and what’s nice is when I shop for fabric, the owner enters our name into a drawing for free fabric if you don’t take a bag!!!I love the feeling of creating something beautiful and useful with my quilting.I do also make charity items for when I go to my annual retreat. Peggy in NJ

  22. Oh pick me…pick me…….! LOL….love those bags!! I think my favourite thing about quilting/crafting is the friendships I have formed over the years……….and more recently thru my blog…..! nothing like time spent with friends!…..

  23. I would have to say my favorite thing is actually two things. I seem to escape any problems or worries when I am creating, whether it is crocheting or quilting or reading about those things. The most is that I feel closer to my Grandmother who is gone now, but was a wonderful quilter.I love the fabric you chose for that bag. I would love to win!!

  24. My favorite thing about making things for others is the opportunity I have to show them just how much I love them. I always pray over what I’m making and for the person who will receive it. blessings, marlene

  25. Those bags are darling. I love your color choices and embellishments. I would say my favorite part of quilting would be giving the items away and seeing someone use them. Like my daughters caring around blankies I made, or my mom using the dishclothes I knit etc.

  26. what a wonderful giveaway!I am sharing your blog on mine, ohsewbusy dot blogspot dot comMy favourite thing is the satisfaction when I have finished something, especially if the project has taken a while to complete. Probably more than that, the sheer pleasure of giving something you have made to someone else and their amazement that you made it for them! That would have to be one of the best feelings.Bec in Australia xxx

  31. Thanks for such a fabulous giveaway drawing. Your purse made from “Moda” fabric by Mary Engelbreit is fabulous. Crafting gets me in my own space.

Many thanks, Cindijchoppes[at]hotmail[dot]com

  32. What adorable bags! My favorite thing about quilting is combining fabrics together in a project and then steping back to see the finished effect. Sometimes it is a great thing and sometimes it is a learning experience!

  33. I love to watch the project grow before my eyes. Have to have something in my hands at night to keep myself busy. The bags are really cute. Please add my name.

  34. My favourite part of quilting is sewing on the binding, as I know I have1. one less UFO to feel guilty about2. actually finished (sometimes even the same year I started it)3. I love simple quilts as well as complimicated ones! I just LOVE quilting!!!! Lissa

  37. What a great giveaway – I love those grab and go bags – I’ve been making them for Christmas gifts (but shhhhhhhhhhh, don’t tell anyone :D) — my favorite thing about crafting/quilting is … all the shopping I “need” to do to work on my craft, haha! I also love it when my family/friends say … “Oh, I really like that project you made – could you make me one for my birthday?” – that just MAKES my day!

  38. I love the creativity of deciding what colors and patterns I want to make and I also love the sense of accomplishment when I finally finish a project! Thanks for the giveaway!

  39. Oh, that bag is just darling! I love Mary E. fabrics!I love quilting because it lets me be me… I get to pick the fabrics and which ones will go where and the look of the finished product. It lets out all my creative juices!Thanks – and Happy October!

  40. Wow count me in!It’s so hard to answer that question, though, my favorite part seems to be what I’m doing NOW, LOL.I do love the hand quilting process, so if I had to pick an absolute favorite that would be it. I do love working with color, though, so that ranks right up there, too.

  41. Hi! IΒ΄d like to enter your giveaway, I love surprises! My favourite thing about quilting is buying fabrics!! and of course when I complete a project. Feels great!please join my giveaway too

  42. Hi DorisMy favourite thing about quilting is seeing a pile of folded fabric transform into a thing of beauty – after much cutting & sewing πŸ™‚ I have a link to Debi's giveaway blog too.BlessingsJanelleThreads of Friendship

  43. Those bags are just too cute! I’m so glad I found your blog, you do some seriously cute stuff (I mean, that pirate box, get out a here!).I’m like a lot of the others here, that the joy for me is taking a piece of potential and turning it into actual. Something usable, fun, something not made off an assembly line. I get a kick out of it!

  44. Very cute prize and love the surprise part. I think my favorite part of crafting and quilting is the variety. We could all make a the same quilt pattern but each one would be different. It could be in the color aspect or how someone layed it out, just the endless varieties. I never need to stop learning as I find something new or that I never thought of to add to my to do list.
