Crazy Quilt Christmas Purse

I just spent a couple of hours putting together my most recent purse and cellphone pouch.  All I have left to do on them is the hand finishing. 

In the meantime, I started stitching on a Crazy Quilt Christmas Purse:

The top piece with the poinsettia is a piece of a vintage hankie that I bought at a flea market earlier this Summer.  The lace piece on the left is antique, the tatted piece is vintage and so is the lace on the right.  Antique and vintage lace seemed rather appropriate considering the vintage hankie I used!

It didn't look like I did much stitching on this yet but I did.  The pine branches on the hankie are all highlighted with thread.  If you look closely at the photo, the stitching kind makes them pop!

It looks beautiful to me. It's funny but this morning I was thinking that I want to make a crazy quilt purse

There must be something in the air about red flowers because my next project has them too. Not poinsettas, but definitely red.
