And the winners are ....

I made two more bags which I think are slightly improved on the first one I made - in the same way as the first pancake is never quite as good as the rest of the batch. The names were drawn by my own in-house randomiser - DS and his friend R. We were very professional about it and typed out all the names, folded them up small, put them in a box, put the lid on, shook it up and picked two out - DH was the presiding officer.
All very exciting. It was lovely to receive all your comments and I wish everyone could be winners but the two names drawn out of the box were ... Rebecca and Tami.

Just chilling out at the moment, this has been the work week from hell - didn't get back home until 7 p.m. on Thursday and I was so terribly tired I went to bed at ten to nine! So much for work-life balance. Now I must get back to the peacock feather quilting as my thread has arrived, hope I haven't lost the rhythm.

The two new baggies are so cute, and they'll love travelling to their new homes. You inspire me to try something with a zipper!

Your description of the draw made me chuckle - are you sure those boys weren't watching the tv coverage of the local elections recently :o)

The new bags came out great! I'm sure you'll have no problem going back to your feather quilting!

I agree with all the above comments, *cute* bags. Especially the use of your bright homespuns! But no one else has asked, so I have to... will you share the pattern?

I second Leslie's request. I just learn ho to sew a zipper but for all that it's good I can't figure out the bag's sides. (I just started sewing a couple weeks ago)
