The Good News Is...

I get to keep the purse. Over the summer I bought some Alexander Henry fabrics-intending to make a bag for myself. Several months went by until I finally decided to make my bag. It turned out beautifully! I was so pleased with it that I felt guilty keeping it and decided to take it to a couple of craft shows to see if I could sell it. Two craft shows later and I still had it. I decided to take it for a test run...still love it and I've decided to keep it. The bad news--it now has coffee all over it, hence the keeping it. You can't see the stain at all, even if you know it's there but I could never in good conscience sell a bag that had something on it, right?! ;)

Now for a list of my works in progress:
How Far Will You Go QAL-need to make the last 3 blocks then start on the layout
Super Penguin QAL-need to make the blocks from Set 4
Easy Street QAL-halfway done with Part 1, then need to start Part 2
Francine the Fox-DONE!  Ready to be shipped to Sew to Speak
Crocheted Fedoras-I've started over on these several times trying different things and I'm not happy with the results.  One more try and I'm giving up.
Grandma's Rooster Project-need to add borders, quilt and bind
25 Days of Cross Stitch Project-about 1/3 of the way done.
Swallow Sign-need to hand quilt around the letters
Pervalong-need to finish quilt top
