Purse-in-Progress

I took a little break from my camera, which meant I took a little break from my blog, oops.

Here is a little glimpse of the purse I am currently working on.  I love it, but not as a purse.  It looks like a great toiletry bag to me.  I will however use it.  I am hoping once I complete the handle that it will come around for me.  The only picture I have is of my water lily, this is my attempt at giving it a little more character.
I drew a water lily with a disappearing pen on the bag, then proceeded to stitch using a back stitch.  There are some french knots in yellow near the center of the flower.  The pen I used disappeared a little too fast, so I ended up "drawing" with my needle and thread.  It was fun.

Complete Projects

Knit Hat(s)  I did it!  My second and third knit project.  I think they came out well.  I am in love with knitting in the round.  Next time, I will tackle a different pattern.  I used a simple pattern found here for these two hats.
This hat was for my husband.  Here he is modelling it for me:)
The next hat was made for my littlest girl, who begged me, "Please, make me a pink hat!"

Progress Made

My Garden of Whimsy Magic Garden Wall Quilt (previously named Terrain Wall Quilt):  I finished quilting and machine sewing the binding.  All I have left is to hand sew the other side of the binding.

Farmer's Wife: I completed a few of these blocks.  This is my most recent, and one of my favourites.

Purse: See above.
