First Purse!!

purse.jpg

This is the first purse I have actually sewn!  It wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be-and the pattern from KWIK SEW was super easy to follow!  I love that the pattern with KWIK SEW comes on a thicker paper, it’s not flimsy at all.  And no-I do not work or am being endorsed byKWIK SEW !;)lol

Or am I just delusional? ;)))) 

At least with having my own pattern, I have room for intentional errors.

My Stash

quilt-fabric.jpgOne thing I can say I have accomplished in 2007 is to finally have accumulated a nice stash of fabric!  I have wanted to make a quilt since I was 19, and because I admitted this to friends at the time-I was the butt of many jokes! Ahhh the good times! LOL So, it has been almost ten years later and I have finally picked the fabrics that will make the cut(no pun intended;) to be in my daughters quilt.  My palette is indicative of Neapolitan ice-cream!  I was just going to make a monotoned pink quilt, but right now I am really liking the pink brown combo…

This is my first quilt, so it should be interesting-stay tuned….

By the way, I thought I would mention some of my fav. online fabric shops:
