Tammy bag for all seasons day 7

Lana wowed us on Friday and she never ever cross stitched before...

With many of us experiencing BRRRRRR conditions,
how nice for us to embrace all SEASONS for the next couple of weeks..

Mary who has cheered us all on for this hop
deserves an applause for organization 
and keeping us all together. 
The warmth in her heart has been a delightful fuel
for our first hop of the year. 

The link is on our side bar for the whole schedule..

Here is our ladies for today..be sure to cheer them
on, I am sure they will give us something to cheer about too..

on our Tammy Bags...
They really feed our motto this year for 

Every one of our blog hops this coming year

will introduce only new patterns, new collections
that you will be seeing here first.

Everyone had 4 choices from each designer to choose from..
