My name is Christine and I am addicted to bag making!
Interests: Now that is a good question! Sewing (surprise surprise!), mainly bags and more bags however I do like making an occasional collector teddy bear (OK so I once did that full time BUT the bags took over! LOL) I also love cats and dogs and all sorts of wonderful critters. COOKING and housework are NOT my favourite pass times however and I would MUCH rather be making a bag! I also enjoy spending time with my wonderful children.....oh and sometimes even hubby too! I like to laugh so I love to watch a good comedy movie and I like to watch some drama, scary and love stories too! Oh what the heck....I like a lot of things!

Thanks so much for your lovely comments, Judith....they are very much appreciated! :)
Thank you, SonJa! I am finding the pocket configuration to work very well....I LOVE pockets....never too many! :)
I hear your frustration, Debbie! Imagine mine when I am short a piece of fabric from across the pond! LOL I order most of my fabric from overseas so if I have to order more, it can be a LONGGGGG wait! As for interfacings and stabilizers....I buy by the bolts......then it isn't a problem, as long as I remember to order well before the bolt is empty! LOLLL
