Purple Painted Lady Purse Continued

I spent yesterday packaging up 1,000's of 2 inch quilt squares. I don't know what I was thinking the last time I made a postage stamp quilt! I had a rubbermaid container filled with them! I packed them up in groups of 400 plus and yes, I actually counted them all out! It took hours and hours. I'll list them over in the shop later today.

In the meantime, here's an update on my Purple Painted Lady Purse:

Purple Painted Lady

The row of sequin trim above the lace is actually a rosey pink color. It doesn't show up well on the scanner. I'm going to have to add something to the feather stitch along the right side of the lady too. That seam doesn't show up well even in person.

On another note, I'll be writing up the tutorial for the painted dryer sheets later today. I expect to have the tutorial ready to publish here tomorrow. I know everyone is busy with Christmas but I want you all to have what what you need in time for the start of Sharon's Take A Stitch project.

Our first project will be Dryer Sheet Pansies with my focus being on the Blanket Stitch. On Friday, I'll give you the supply list for actually making the pansies.

And, to help with the post-Christmas blahs (I don't have that problem but I know alot of people do), I'm going to host a contest next week. That'll give everyone something fun to look forward to. There will be a nice prize for the winner and although you'll have to do a bit of research, the answer is available on the internet!

Ok everyone, have a good day! I'll see ya'll tomorrow!

Pam, I am looking forward to the dryer sheet class (which I will check out after we get back home), but will miss the contest. Thank you for taking the time to do this.
Merry Christmas,
Gail
