Work in progress

Here are a few pics f my daughters and a work in progress top. I the pictures it just needed a bit more border work. As of now the borders are on and it is waiting to be basted. I will be quilting it on my home sewing machine. I just can't make up my mind how much detail I want to put into the quilting. How do you decide your quilting designs?

A finish

Here it is. A finished purse. This one puts the count at 2 totes, 2 quilted purses, 2 wallets and this round purse. I hope to post some pics of the wallets I made a couple days after this purse soon. For some reason I have been slacking on the journal lately. I have been creating more than journaling. Hope to do better :)

Huskers Tote - Fun and Functional

 Here are a few pics of a Husker Shopping Tote I made late in December of 2011.  Bet you can't guess what state I live in....
 Anyways, I modified a pattern from the book Sew Serendipity - Bags   
 I really like this book and enjoy this pattern for a sturdy shopping tote.
The front/center of the tote it a cute little pocket a wallet and cell phone.
