I Love: ilovetwilla

I love this luscious bag full of different textures and range of earthy colors. This designer is Beth Ellen Cohen and her brand is TWILLA. She was a licensed psychotherapist in Florida (of course) and started making bags. That's how she went from "baggage" to "bags". Check out her price points....Twilla is worth every bit of it. So if you design and sew don't sell yourself cheap. This is one-of-a-kind and every therapist will tell you "you are worth it". Check out her story and Esty site!

I couldn't help's my other favorite bag.

A great tracing paper in your neighborhood

My favorite tracing paper lives at Staples in the "Drafting Dept." It comes in white and yellow and available on rolls 12" wide or 18" wide.

This is the price of the 12" size and 50 yards will last quite a while. The paper is crisp and falls away after stitched. I use it to trace patterns, for quilting, and for appliques. It would be awesome for paper piecing. The best part is I can pick it up after getting groceries next door.
