The fall purse

Each new season I like to make a different purse. For my fall bag I used a pattern from the new book, "Bend the Rules Sewing". I totally stink at following a pattern so a big thanks goes out to my mother in law for her coaching as I grumbled my way through it.

My new quilt

I got a brainstorm last week. I have been wanting to make a linen blanket for some while but didn't want to spend the $ on nice linen. So anyhow, last week at my weekly thrift store voyage, they had all shorts 2 for $.99
So I bought all the linen shorts I could find. Mens and womens. I came home with a pile, cut them into squares and made this little quilt for the boys. I embroidered little hedgehogs, a bird, and sheep on it. So that was the project this week....
