My Purse Came Home!

Just about a week ago the mailman brought my CQ purse back from its visit to Janet's house in Colorado. Oh my, what beautiful stitching she did! It was fun looking back at my "before" pictures because I couldn't remember how it looked and what I had done, so I will show both here. My next step is to sew the pieces together and line the whole thing. Another project!

Janet's Additions

A great little shopping adventure with Sharon inspired me to put the finishing touches on Janet's purse, and she let me know that it arrived safely back at her house this week. It was really fun to finally meet Sharon, and besides boosting the economy with our visits to THREE stores, we enjoyed getting acquainted.

This was a very fun swap, and it is really nice to see another person's stitching up close, especially Janet's as she's a pro!

Hey Judy! Both crazy patch purses are looking fabulous! They'll be spectacular once they're finished and are sure to draw comments whenever they're taken out somewhere! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Lovely! I'm not really sure what's going on with these lovelies, as I am new to your blog, but certainly are gorgeous, none the less. I will enjoy following their progress.

If you all keep doing these beautiful things you are going to convince me that I have to try yet another craft -- cut it out, no don't, if you cut it out you'll make something out of it (LOL).

BTW you just pick up the camera, point, and click, he he he he he he
