And I made this purse! A few weeks ago I made one from 2 tea towels (the pattern was in the BH&G magazine) and really liked it. But I wanted one just a little bigger. I adapted the pattern some, which is so unlike me. I usually follow patterns to the T but I lengthened it, added pockets inside, used decorator fabric instead of tea towels and made straps instead of using wooden handles. It has 4 pockets outside and 4 pockets inside and it's perfect. Well not exactly perfect but good.
Don't let the difficulties of the present moments overshadow the reality of God's promises. God's promises still stand. And God's promises are stronger than our failures.

Finished by Friday - Hold On To Your Hats
Hold on to your hats girls because this week I have worked!
I've been working on an apron exchange on Booming Aprons . It was a Fall/Halloween themed exchange and my partner is Sarah at A Needle & Threads. This first apron is the one I made for her. I knew I wanted to do this cute witch, which is from an Art From The Heart book, but when I read a little about Sarah I found out she has two kids, Jackson 4 and Addie 1, so the two little ghosts peaking out of the pockets are for them. You can't see it here but the buttons look like spider webs!
Since I had the fabric, and when didn't I have the fabric? I decided I'd make myself a fall apron too. The expression on the jack-o-lantern's face is just like mine every time I have to cook! :)
I also participated in a Pay It Forward challenge. These are the two notebook covers I made and sent to Pam at Passionate Purple Quilter and Amy at All My Stuff. My daughter, Tammy, was my third participant and I haven't made hers yet (well I already made her one of these so now I have to think up something else), but she gets stuff all the time anyway so I can be a little slower on that!
