Just a little patchwork quilted purse.

My latest project in patchwork and quilting is this little fan purse.

I am using it for my rotary cutters and scissors and pins.. I loved doing the fancy stitching along the seams with my Husqvava machine. Bought six years ago and only in the last two years have I used all its features. I think this design would be a very nice Christmas present for friends.

And it is a lovely way to use up small pieces of fabric. I had to go to Hobby Craft in Basildon to buy the zip and had to pay to park! What a price,  here in Billericay parking is free at weekends. So to off set the cost of parking I had to buy some other items! Just some lovely gold cord for Christmas ornies and a bundle of six denim blue pattened fabric fat quarters! Did I need the fabric?? Of course I did!!
Happy stitching all... and today we have glorious sunshine, so I will be happily gardening,
