Saturday, when I was machine quilting a quilt, I ran out of thread. I hopped in the car vowing I would not spend money in quilt shop…I would only buy thread….nothing else. If you sew, you know that’s a HUGE challenge. The newest issue of Quilts and More was there. I flipped through it…all the while telling myself, “don’t cave in….only buy thread.” While I was flipping through the magazine the shop gal showed me a bag made from an empty bag of dog food. I thought it was silly and left the store with only my thread. (aren’t you proud of me!)
When I got home I went to change the wash and there next to the washing machine, was an empty dog food bag. I looked at the bag and thought…no. I’m not making a bag made from an empty bag of dog food.
Well then…last night, I could resist no more. I had a couple minutes before I was going to bed and decided what the heck…it won’t cost me anything. I retrieved the bag from the garbage and wa-la….there’s my bag.
Kalissa came home and said…”really Mom, you’ve got to be kidding!” About two minutes past and then she said, “Wait. Can I have that bag?”
So now it’s your turn to weigh in….Cute? or Strange?
