My First Purse Finished!

Last weekend I made my first purse using the Boho Baguette pattern.
I am also going to make the Encore Purse Insert to use inside this purse to give it a more stable shape plus to organize all my stuff. The fabric I used for the interior and inset of the purse handles is a pretty cotton batik look that has little sprakles in it. I am going to make the purse insert with the same pink fabric.

"Among The Leaves" Quilt Top Finished

To make each of the quilt blocks I hand dyed each individual block the colors I wanted, traced the pictures onto the blocks, colored the pictures using crayons, heat set them to remove the wax and then embroidered the outlines of the pictures. This quilt was alot of fun. I made all the blocks about 2 years ago.
