Madame Samm consistently keeps us challenged with her fun and creative ideas.
This time we're putting a Stamp On It by creating our own STAMP...how cool is that!
Thearica from Pigtales and Quilts is hosting this hop and she's done
a magnificent job of keeping us motivated and ready to hop.
While I was at that retreat not too long ago, we went to do a little shopping at Scrap Apple where I saw a quilt on the wall that totally stole my heart. I loved the fabric...it's called Ladies Diary...and it's a little vintage looking like me, plus I love to write in my journal so it was a fabric I'm sure was created JUST FOR ME! I bought a little fabric for my stamp AND THEN went back later to buy the whole quilt kit...HAD to have it and I've already started working on putting it together.
My stamp ended up on a side-slung bag with no zippers or pockets....just a bag
to throw my stuff in when I'm dashing out the door.

I fussy cut some of the pictures from the fabric and appliqued them in positions I liked better for my stamp.
The postal marks were hand embroidered as was the 1 cent mark. USA was stamped on with ink.
It needed a matching Tammy Bag...I was sure of it...so, of course I made one.
I love shopping at Quilt Taffy, so there's
A GIFT CERTIFICATE FROM ME just waiting for a winner.
