    Great bags! It doesn't matter what you do with them. Making them is your medicine to stay calm in a difficult time. No one would wonder what you were going to do with nerve pills. Keep sewing and enjoy it!

    Great bags! The 2 with red roses are my favourites. Sorry your husband is suffering. The pinched nerve in my neck has taken 2 years to get better and I hope he heals quicker!

    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    beautiful, each one is prettier than the next
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Each bag is great. Love them all. My absolute favorite is the blue silky one. Sorry to hear your husband is not feeling well. I just went through a long illness myself, for me the real problems came after I was healed physically. I hope that he's keeping in contact with the outside world as much as possible. I wasn't able to and some where along the way I lost myself. Having trouble sorting out my emotions. I would highly recommend palliative care. Despite what some people think, it's not for those who are dying. It's for anyone who's undergone a serious lengthy illness. My counselor is really helpful. Prayers for your husband and for you.
    Next to God we are indebted to women, first for life itself, and then for making it worth having.

    Christian Nestell Bovee,

    I do like what I see and congratulate you on being a wonderful 'caregiver'. I am in that same boat with a husband with early to mild dementia and a tremor problem. I also have been 'busying' myself with smaller items. I am now going to try 'fidget blankets'. Saw one in use at the local nursing home and thought I would try some. I am sure that, later on, my husband will be in need of one.

    You've been a busy lady. Great work. Love the blue silky one, also the white with black and the black with white.
    Hope your DH is on the road to recovery.

    The bags are absolutely lovely - great fabrics, nice patterns, and well put together. Thanks for sharing, and we are sending good vibes to you and your DH. (I never know who needs the prayers the most -the injured ones, or the caregivers - both are difficult positions to say the least.) I made my first hand-quilted bed quilt while visiting my MIL in the nursing home.
    KEEP CALM and CARRY ON!!

    Prayers for Hubby and you, for total physical and emotional healing. I love your bags, They would make great gifts or you might see if you could sell them at a Fair or Bazar booth perhaps. Sewing is always therapy for me.

    Your bags are great, and no matter whether you keep or give them away, I know they had to have been great therapy. I know that quilting is my therapy and probably cheaper than a psychologist or psychiatrist.

    Beautiful fabrics!!!!! I'm not much of a "purse person", but I love your pattern that you're using. It somehow wants to be made from Dresden Plate pieces, maybe in great fabrics like you use????

    My goodness! You've been busy making beautiful bags. It looks like you've got your Christmas done! The roses are the ones I like best.

    Great purses and love the red rose one and the patterns. Praying for your husband and you as being a caregiver it hard. Hope he heals fully and not in too much pain.
