I did manage to work on a quilted project for the last couple of days. On the way to getting out the Christmas quilt I want to finish, I came across some pretty summer fabric and a purse pattern I wanted to make for this summer. So, of course, I had to do this project first. I just finished it and am now back to getting out the Christmas quilt. Aren't fabric closets fun!
Barbara, that is a beautiful purse. And, yes, it is so much fun to find fabric you'd forgotten you had.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Wow! That's all I can say about all the beautiful projects that have appeared in my mailbox! I'm so jealous of the time you have to work on such lovelies!
There are 5 more spots in the oriental fabric swap--check it out, if you like orientals!
Oh Ginny, My heart went out to you as I read your horrible happenings. I will pray and hope that you start feeling better soon. Get some good rest and don't try to do to much until you are fully healed - it will all wait.
Barbara - your purse is beautiful and very summery! Great job! It would make me smile each time I went to pick up this purse to go out the door - I would have to be going a lot... :)
Barbara, I really like the purse you made and the fabric you found to make it. What is the name of the pattern/designer, etc. I think I'd like to make it too.
