    Hi, had to go out unexpectedly but have made 3 bags this morning.
    That makes a total of 10.
    sorry I don’t know how to make the number large and pretty.

    I found a numeral on flickr.com that someone else had put on, Tintin. I copied the URL and pasted it into my comment and it appeared as a number, as if by magic!

    We’ve hit various snags (not having as many kits as I thought, forgetting to bring plenty of thread, bent needle, had to replace bulb) but have made another 3 bags. Running total now

    This lovely morsbag was made this morning by new morsbaggers Caroline. She took kits and labels home with her so looks very promising!

    Hi all,
    I don’t have time to post pictures, but I have completed one this morning for my friends birthday. Our Sew A Thon starts in 1 1/2 hours, so will update when we’re finished up this evening. We will be handing out premade bags as well, so will add those to our pod total. Love being part of this organization! Running total now at 22.

    Hi, I‘am really surprised: my „sewing ladies“ made 14 Morsbags today and they are still sewing… maybe we run out of stock with labels by tomorrow :-)))
    Running total is 40 now!

    That’s brilliant Ursula! I’m impressed by your sewing ladies and their industriousness. Which pod are you?

    Are you Die Nähdamen? I see you’ve been adding bags all day long – fantastic work Nähdamen!

    Fantastic work everyone!
    We just wrapped up our Sew a Thon and I’m happy to say we can add 26 more bags to the total / 70!!!
    We gave away 53 bags outside the library ( we had some pre made), so I’ll update our pod total. Really fun day!!

    Well done Jan! Its fun when pods from all over join in. My pod is in Leicester where the king was found in the carpark! As you can see I guerrilla bagged Richard 111!
