Happy New Year!

Just having a bit of trouble getting back into the swing of things now that we have returned from our visit, returned to school and after school activities. I am not excited about cleaning up & organizing my studio. What a mess. I guess the worst part is that there are numerous projects. unfinished (of course) that are a large part of the clutter and I could just pack them away in order to clean up, or actually finish them which is what I should do. I have finished 3 purses that I did not get gone in time for Christmas, so they qualify for two categories! WISPs and Christmas gifts! I added the 1 XMAS project a month button to my side bar to inspire me to get the projects done (on time) this year! I am toying with the idea of figuring out just how may WIP/WISPs I have and listing them on my sidebar. Might be too overwhelming, but may keep me on task. I have noticed that I started out really well last year, completing WISPs, but then I started a slew of projects, MANY which were completed. Bunch that were not. Sigh. Above are the purses; there are only three - they are reversable, the 1st photo is of the "inside" the 2nd is of the outside. I'm not so wild about the plain inside fabric, I do like the black, pink and green fabric for the inside. I guess since there isn't any quilting a busier fabric might be best. Can't say who they're going to though, the larger purses I mean, Christmas is a long ways away and I couldn't spoil the surprise THIS early! I just made the smaller kitty one so that I could use up the scraps from the larger kitty purse! Happy Quilting!


  1. Hi, Brenda - I popped over from Nell's Notions - your purses are sweet! My reversible bags never look as good on the inside as the outside, so they're not really reversible, LOL. The Laurel Burch kitty fabric is beautiful, and I love that the little purse is a leftover project - great use of scraps!

  2. Did you say 'only 3'?
    I would call 3 amazing! They're lovely and a great start for the year.

  3. I did say only 3, but that's because I have 10 total to do, that I didn't get done last year!
