OK, first off is my new purse I decided Sunday I had to make! The picture up top is the front of it. I have a really fun wooden horn like button I've got to sew on it yet for the closure. But I couldn't wait to take a picture and share it! Right above here is the back. You can just make out the little green loop that will flip over and go around the button. Then below is the sides. The pattern doesn't have these side pockets but that is what I use for my car keys, so I just added them! They don't look bad! The pattern is a quilt as you go so there are no inside pockets. But that also I had to change. Where would I put my lipstick? And where would my cell phone go! So I quilted as I went just through the batting. Then I added pockets to the lining fabric and then put it together. I tried to get a picture of the inside but it was too hard, I couldn't get it to come out good. So all I need to do yet is finish sewing the binding down and put the button on and I have a new fall purse! Isn't it fun!
But what I have been mostly working on the last week is cutting brushed cotton plaids for my retreat projects this weekend! They are scrappy quilts so it takes forever to cut out all the pieces. But I"m done. This doesn't look like a lot, but there is enough for 2 quilts here! I have a note in each baggy what piece and quilt it is for! So I can just sew, sew, sew!!!!!! Now lets just hope I cut them right!
So I"ve been busy, but not much to show for it! Oh and I did go to the movies this weekend with Emily (Freshman). We went to see "Flicka". Oh it was such a nice movie and gorgeous scenery in Wyoming. And of course towards the end I started crying. Well it gets to a big point in the story and the girl has one simple line and I start sobbing and catching my breath! One silly line and I loose it! I won't spoil it for you if you want to see it - you'll know the line when you hear it! Well Emily wouldn't admit that she was crying, but she is fair skinned and has red hair - it wasn't too hard to figure out why her face was all blotchy and eyes red and puffy! So it even got to her! Go see it. Just a nice story and nice movie.
