A Few Things....

How sad is this?   This is what the purse that I am currently carrying looks like, pretty tired and extremely over loved...


I loved this purse, I loved the color, I loved the shape, I loved the size, I loved the pockets...But now it's time to say goodbye. When I first made it I was so proud, but now, I hide it.  I don't want anyone to look at it, because it's so tired...  But, just look at what came in today's mail....


Isn't it beautiful? You can click on it for a closer look. 
 And take a peek at the inside.....



It's got pockets everywhere!!  I really love the pocket on the outside, just perfect for the cell phone!  You will never believe where I got this!  Brandy!  Yep, she's making them.  I saw her first purse on facebook and just had to have one for myself.  Take a look at this one.....


Isn't it just the girliest thing you ever did see??  LOVE IT!!  Brandy can make one for you if you'd like, just let me know and I can get you her info.  She's working on another quilt, so I'm hoping to see another quilt come my direction.



I'm also pluggin' away at a couple of BOM's.  Here's the first one from my favorite little quilt shop Four Pines in Claremont....


Here's another one that I'm doing with my friend Lynn, it's from Quilted Threads....


Well, that's it for today.  Got to scoot, need to look at tile and paint-shoot me!!

Thanks for checking on me,
hugs,
joanne

love to hear what you've got to say............

New purses are great yet frightening....I say frightening because it takes awhile to get use to it and I'm always thinking I've lost something....LOL
