Janet at Quiltsalott designed the cutest little purses and posted a tutorial for them on her blog. Her instructions were great. It didn’t take long at all to stitch up the red purse last night for my daughter. Then this morning I decided I wanted one too, so I made the blue one for me. I’m going to use it to hold scissors, thread and thimble, etc. for appliqué on the go, so the tiny silver scissors on the zipper pull were the perfect final touch.

I’m still here… stitching away… working on Florabunda #3 now and loving the fabrics and soft colors. I can’t decide which is my favorite block, I have enjoyed them all.

Quite a while ago I set myself a goal to see how far I could go in stitching hexagons. So far I have made 17 pretty hexagon flowers and have several more cut and ready to go. Now I don’t know when I will stop!
I also stitched up these tiny 1/2 inch hexies and turned them into a little 13 inch quilt…all finished.
I love making hexie flowers!
I was also working on a dresden quilt. I have the blocks all done and am deciding how to design them into a quilt….sashing and all…you know.
While I’m thinking through that, I took time to sew some sweet 3 inch dresdens for these little projects:
My inspiration came from Virginia, of Galloping Pony. I love her designs. She has such a beautiful talent.
