Last and First....

Happy New Year everyone!!

2009 was a very busy year creatively and the last project I worked on was this purse for Dear Daughter's friend Nicole. They have this fictitious (they wish it was real, maybe one day...) production company called Catfish Productions and Nicole drew this combo cat/fish picture. I copied it onto some suiting and embroidered it and added a few star buttons. A little flower print here, a bit more suiting, D-ring and slider there and presto...we have a purse....with a couple pockets inside!

I hope she likes it!:)

Also...I was a winner at the end of last year. My new friend Marguerite had a giveaway and I was one of the winners... I started this new year in a great way by finding her package in the mailbox this afternoon!! I won this wonderful panel of LOVE inspirations and for extra fun she included this adorable felt heart ornament and three skeins of thread....and then I was inspired!!

The pile of scrap fabric on the left was graciously sent to me by Stephanie and below is what I started working on this afternoon using those scraps and several sections of the panel I received from Marg...

....can you guess what this is going to be?:)


PS....I met these wonderful women at this group started by the fabulous Dana called
the Old Red Barn Co. Quilt-Along....why don't you come join us?!!:)


  1. Love those giveaways! And look at you being so productive.

    Happy 2010!

  2. I'm glad the parcel arrived safely! You ARE quick though! Allready making something... I'm impressed!! It looks lovely alltogether but... YOU and your guessing games... I wasn't too successfull at that last time.... So I won't embarrass myself again!!

  3. I'm so happy to see you're making the scraps I sent into something wonderful!!!

    Happy New Year, and here's to many fun creative times in 20-10!!

  4. Love the purse. What is suiting?
