Finished!

Finished the Ladybug quilt last night.........yippee........and as it were I'm finished early because the due date got moved to late Feb.   Oh well, now I can focus on the other projects with due dates.

I ended up sewing the brooch pin backings onto the ladybugs so that I could pin them to the quilt because I couldn't figure out a doable way to stitch them on with the number of layers that it has.


And then in the morning before work I needed something that didn't make me think, so I took these scrap strips of silks (1" to 1.5" in width) and started sewing them to a piece of fusible fleece for the start of a new purse.  I have a couple more strips to sew on to cover the fleece.   Next up is finding something to use for lining.   I'm thinking maybe a coordinating oriental print for the lining, and ribbon for the strap on it.   I also want to put a pocket on the inside of it, but haven't decided what i'm going to do for that.   This will eventually be listed for sale.

Gratitudes:
1. Paper work that I need to gather for the mortgage is almost together.  

2. For progress in getting things done.

You don't allow yourself to bask in finishedness for long--you already have another unfinished in progress. :-) Cheers on the finish. Looks good.

The finish is great. I like the way you brought your design to life. That's going to be a super purse - very appealing, and expensive looking.
