Crazy day but finished a project

This day started out with plans to visit my friend Jill but as life often dictates, my plans were changed however I used the wasted time to finish a project. Yeah!!

I made my "sis" Brenda an eyeglass case. She wanted darker colors to keep in her purse, and I didn't want to do my usual black so......I brought out some fabrics I have been wanting to use together and I think this is my favorite case so far. I love the rich intense colors playing off each other. I hope Brenda likes it too.I like it so much that I am planning to make a purse for myself after I get a few projects wrapped up. I even bought a piece of the blue dupioni yesterday before I knew it would be used in a purse. Now to finish a small coin purse and some gifties for friends.Then, let garden stitching time begin! Jill, next week..for sure! :-)

  6. Hi Pat,
    I always love your color combos. This is another fantastic work, a real eye-candy.
    I wish I could have a sister like you:))
    Much Love,

  8. Wow I learn so much just by looking at your stitching!
    I love the eyeglass case that you made here!

    Pat, thank you so very much for the BEAUTIFUL charm and *ribbon!*

    The nest looked perfect, laying beneath the bird, that was printed on the card, when I took it out from the envelope.

    This was such a nice surprise!

    I would like to know if you have any of the tiny flowers that you sold me last year, left in your for sale stash?
    I would like to buy some from you if you can post some to Etsy.
    I only want the brighter colors, not the really dark red ones.
    If you let me know what colors you have, I can tell you what I can use.
    They look so cute on my fabric charms!!!
    So I have to get more!

    Thank you again!
