A Collection of Bags

The bags have come in all shapes,colours and sizes.There have been plain,patterned,applique,patchwork, pocketed, with zips, with flaps, buttoned, long handles, short handles,  they have been, and yes, they have gone.   The total is
  …..DRUM ROLL….                 355
The thanks have come in, and also been sent out, to all the sewers,quilters, couriers, ladies on the phone who said  Yes, of course we can, that yet another large box could be taken to Wellington, the men I have not met who arranged the freight to Tokyo, John, so many thanks for without your help this would not have gone ahead, and Mark, the same, as without you in Tokyo the bags would not have been sent out over there.To all the men behind the scenes who watched and waited…also many thanks,  you all , and especially my Hugh, have no doubt wondered where they were all going to, how many patterns,piles of fabric,bags waiting for photos, would there be??? Here are some photos of the later arrivals.Donna's bags July 2011
