Another addiction that many of us stitchers have is Vera Bradley bags. These are some of the bags that were present last Sunday.
To me, Vera bags are a cross between "old lady" bags, quilts, and comfort food. There is something about them that is just so delicious!
I feel really lucky that I have a big Vera bag that I can load my stitching stuff into and head off to Inspired Needle or a friend's home to stitch. I can fit everything I need into the one bag and I think I am pretty cool as I walk around with it.
There are many different styles and patterns to Vera's bags. I heard that on July 8th they are announcing their fall colors! Wooopeee! I am excited!
Now Vera has reading glasses that match some of the bags. I got readers that match my bag!!!! I was so excited! The other cool thing is that I bought the readers at a shop in New Carlisle, Indiana. That is the town where my grandparents are from and it holds a special place in my heart.
Once, when I was visiting my Dad, I was on the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island and saw a fellow Vera wearer. We struck up a conversation just based on the fact that we both had Vera bags.
I think I love all the accessories that go along with stitching as much as I love to stitch!
P.S. Thank you for all of the wonderful comments! I love, love, love reading them and have discovered some great new blogs because of them!
