I had a fun few days of sewing last weekend I thought I'd share.
On Saturday, my friend/fellow-guild member/neighbor Cathy walked me through finishing up my striped purse from a pattern from Jessica Levitt's book Modern Mix. I fell in love with this purse as soon as I saw it in Jessica's book, but never having made a purse before was very hesitant to go it alone. I was thrilled when Cathy and another guild-member friend, Anna, wanted to make it too. We got together a few months ago and got this far....
I knew that without some help, I'd never get any further and Cathy kindly offered to help me finish.
It's even got a couple of pockets inside. This purse was actually pretty easy to make, so the girls in my life can expect one for Christmas!
The Round Bobbin. When the shop first opened, they had these little hexagon kits to make one flower. They were asking customers to make one and sign it and will be made into a memory quilt. I dropped mine off today during the Fall class preview event, which was a lot of fun. The teachers previewed their classes and showed the quilts or items to be made in the class. It was hard to stop myself from signing up for everything!
I'm really looking forward to next weekend's big quilt show in Oaks, PA - the PA National Quilt Extravaganza. I'm getting my list together!
