Today also happens to be Getty's birthday! And she would like you to help her celebrate with a few extra (10) presents. Who doesn't love a party? Especially a girl's 1st big party!
Some very cool friends like Stacey have arranged for some very cool giveaways to be planned through out the day. Getty loves spreading the love. And some of those gifts I hear might be owl related.

So I searched my house for something thifted and green and this is what I found. My trusty trash can that I keep in my sewing room. It catches all of my thread and bits of fabric that is too tiny for scraps. I love to see it fill up, because it means I have been hard at work!
It is such an awful green color and so groovy with the flowers on the front. I just love it and could not walk away from it. Even though the price said $12. I'm sure I didn't pay that much for it. Because I did buy it at a place that I frequent so much, the owner knows my name and asks about my kids and sister-in-law when I am in there. Which really isn't a thrift shop. But a great junk shop that I tell no one else of, because I love it so! And if I do happen to share it with you, then that means I love you too.
So what do you have to share with Stacey and I today? You can link it here, and use our cute thrifty adventures button on your blog or sidebar, when you do. Thanks for sharing!

I think I will just bind this up with one of my favorite solids, no sashing. And then back it in the same Amy Butler print. I will show it to you again, all finished.
And remember, I still have this bit to do something with. I separated out my stack to use with these 2 different fabrics. Now I am having so much fun fooling around with them, that I want a whole new pack of those charm solids.
Have you ever used one of these solid pack of fabric charms?

I think I have told you before that I am not a lover of purple. Even though I did just buy that purple couch! But this fabric was just gorgeous and I could not resist it's vibrancy.
So I made this sweet purple library bag. I spent the day writing a pattern for it too. So much tougher than I thought it would be. It is fun and easy to sew, but hard for me to put it in words. I had to sew, and write and got a little frustrated. And walk away for a bit. But I did it!
It's also a reversible bag. And using two complimentary prints on the inside make it fun. It's big enough for you, or your girl, whenever you're ready for a sleepover, not just for a trip to the library.
And be sure to visit the Vintage Sheet Blog. Where there is a daily giveaway and it is lots of fun!
