Tea for two...

and a whole lot of happy girl friend chatter!
A bit of chit about
and some chat about
more patterns.
Some cinnamon tea
and some lovely blueberry pound cake
(made by my guest).
Don't forget the show and tell
of works-in-progress.
A bit of lunch.
More happy chatter!
We call that Well-Being-Wednesday!
Happy Hobbies!

I love the Quilts and More magazine and saw the current issue advertised in another of my quilting magazines prior to its release! I fell in love with the purse on the cover immediately. So off I went in search of the issue... I'll spare you the details of magazine hunt and just get right to the purse...
The pattern, called 1-2-3-Go, was pretty easy to follow and quick to put together. I spent about 3 hours from start to finish, after I found just the right fabric. The fabrics are scraps from a quilt my mom started last year. I'm quite pleased to have them reinvented into this happy purse!
Some staff at the local Jo-Ann Fabrics recognized my purse from the magazine cover and made a big fuss! Well, isn't that good for a girl's self-esteem?

Happy Hobbies!

The Cozy is Finished... Finally!

I finally finished the cozy about 2 weeks ago,
weaved all the yarn ends in last week,
and washed and blocked it last Friday...
Blocked and drying.
The pattern up close.
I'm so pleased with my first lace pattern;
even if it was a 10 month project!
Happy Hobbies!
