A sewing day for me

 Well, here it is Friday already.  This was one of those long weeks that went by way too quickly if you know what I mean.  I had a lot of embroidery and several odd jobs that seemed to take longer than they should have, and while every day was busy, there wasn't much of interest to blog about.  So today, I took a day to sew for myself.

I made this cute purse and I am so happy with it.  I have been wanting/needing a new purse for quite a while.  It was very rewarding to start and finish a project in one sitting, something I rarely do.  I had the Olympics on while I sewed, and it was a most enjoyable day.  And, I also made a matching wallet.

Both the purse and wallet make me happy, and I have that satisfied feeling you get when you get something completed.  Tomorrow I will be back to quilting, which I love, but a change is always nice.

Happy weekend, I appreciate you stopping by.



  1. What a beautiful purse & wallet!
    Amazing you got them both finished so quickly!
    Ilove your fabric choices too - this set is terrific!

  2. Very cute, I love the paisley fabric! What a lovely way to spend the day.

  3. Love the purse, I made some yesterday also! They are such fun and addicting aren't they.

  4. They are both lovely. I just bought fabric to make a purse for me. I've already made 1 for my sister, 1 for her friend, and 1 for my mum, now it's my turn.
