The winner, and revamping a bag

Thank you everyone who came to visit and enter the Giveaway.  It has been lovely to go visit some new blogs as well as the regulars.

It is time for  the draw of my Giveaway.
Number 24 commenter is Sue W. Sue's blog is Stitch and Share.  I have sent you an email, Sue, asking for your addy ....  The zippy pouch and its mystery contents will be heading your way as soon as I hear from you.  I hope you will find the zippy pouch to be useful.

Today's sewing event was revamping a bag I made last year.  I found the bag was too long and the handles too short. The bag had 3 large pockets inside, but while I had it pulled apart I  added a zippered pocket - something I like to have for security of smaller items.
 I found the perfect button to use on it as well.
Tomorrow is the first Quilters Trail bus trip.  This year each shop has a colour for their theme, and Sew This and That's colour is yellow.  This is the "yellowest" bag I have to use.  The only yellow clothing I have is  my hubby's vest, which is a bit big but it might work.  Otherwise the bag will be "it".

I will be back on Sunday to show my Quilters Trail purchases.
