I finally got into my sewing room late morning, where the first thing I did was finish my cousin's purse that I started yesterday. She picked black, lime and pink colors, and this is what I ended up with:
The lining is done is a soft pink/lime stripe:
I hope she'll be happy with it; I'll send her photos tonight and she can let me know if it's what she wanted.
I just didn't feel like working on a big project today, so I decided to get my "Sew Red for Women" block for May finished. This turned out nice; it's the top left block, the others are from February through April. And on all of these blocks, my points are all visible.....hurray!!!! I can see a nice quilt top when I have 12 of these completed:

I think I'll alternate the next round of four-patches with a solid surround and a white border; should add interesting geometries when they are paired up with these.
I've spent the last hour and a half cutting strips for my scrap stash; 1 1/2-inch, 2 1/2-inch, 4 1/2-inch and 6 1/2-inch; I cut up a bunch of squares, too. I had two laundry baskets overflowing, but I'm back to one again, and my room is neater, too. That will start me off in the morning in a better mood.
Maybe tomorrow will see more progress......but I'm off to the post office and grocery; at least the rain is good for the garden. Check in with Connie at Quilting by the River to see what other people are working on today.
Have a great evening,
