Marlene asked to see the fabrics that I picked up in Norfolk last weekend.  First up is a purse that I am working on.  I fell in love with the tulip/plumeria fabric.IMG_7107

I loved this fabric and I have started the process of turning it into a purse for a friend.IMG_7111

Here is the balance of the fabric I picked up.  IMG_7109See that yummy taupe and teal fabric in the center?  I can’t wait to work with that one!  I think that may end up as a simple messenger bag for me…or not.  I fall in love with every bag I make.  I swear, it’s almost like parting with quilts. 

Speaking of quilts, I am participating in a 9-patch block swap and my second batch of blocks arrived yesterday.  We have one more month of swapping.  I think the quilt is going to be really cool.  So many of the fabrics I have never seen before and that is exciting.  I need to go pick up some Kona white fabric and start sashing them.  I really would like to do some serious quilting but I have people asking for my bags.  What’s a girl to do?!

Have a wonderful day!!


  1. Really great fabrics. Your friend will be very lucky to get that beautiful purse. I just love the combinations of fabrics.
