Some recent projects
I finished a few things recently. This first one is about 55" x 55" and was the mystery quilt project from the 2006 guild quilt retreat. I didn't do anything fancy, just stippled it with a varigated thread. A friend of mine saw it and actually wanted to buy it. I let her borrow it for a couple of weeks, but in the end the bright teal just clashed with everything in her home, so she decided not to buy it. I was flattered that she wanted it (she's a talented watercolorist), but I'm happy to keep it. I remember when I bought the focus fabric. It was way back in the early 90's and it was the first time my sister and I went to PNQE together.
Next up are a couple of purses. I do like this purse pattern. It takes a little time to put together, but you can really highlight some beautiful fabrics with it. The Christmas one has a zipper. That fact is significant in that I do believe it's the very first zipper I've sewn since 9th grade Home Ec. 9th grade was several decades ago!
