A Little Indecision Isn't Such a Bad Thing.....


Well, yesterday I was "dithering" here and there, about what to start, when to start it, and I got myself totally confused.

I decided that I needed a quick, fast project, so I finally started in on Tracey's purse yesterday afternoon.  The piecing went smoothly, the fusing went quickly, the quilting was minimal and I got everything assembled but the ties and the button.  Those went on this morning (yes, at 6:30 a.m., but I'd been up since 5:00).....and


Ta-Da!!...a cute birthday gift for my BFF.......




Margaret showed up bright and early this morning, and we made our way to Patchwork Plus for a shopping expedition.   She was on a mission to find fabrics for some jackets, and I was going to find a border for "Little Monkey"......mission accomplished:




It's a crazy border, but has lot's of solid colors in it....sort of like crayon scribbles.....


The back is pieced and it's going on the long-arm tomorrow.  Late this afternoon, I finally got up the courage to slice into my Moda Summerbreeze Fabrics....8 blocks and an hour later.....I'm 1/10th done with the pieced top......I could like this.....

Sometimes taking "time out" is good for regenerating enthusiasm.....

We're off to have dinner with friends and listen to some music at the Woodstock Cafe in a little while.  Have a great evening......

I so love a purse! Really nice, I especially like the ties on the side. Did you use a pattern or just wing it?
