    Christmas is coming!!!

    Ok, I know I'm a little early but if I don't start now, I'll never make it. In between quilts for the grandchildren, I'm making a purse and accessories for the adult girls. Here is my first one, it is for my daughter who loves horses. The fabric is a western print, barbed wire print and a wood print. I used the Sweet Retreat's Little Sister pattern by Whistlepig Creek Productions and assorted free patterns from the internet. I hope you and my daughter like!!!

    Better to do something imperfectly, than nothing perfectly.
    Done is better than perfect.

    Beautiful!!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Love everything and your daughter will too! I am waiting on the pattern for that bag right now. Hope it is not too difficult.

    Maybe we would all be cooler if we thought about Christmas. On the other hand we could go into a panic that it is so close. This will be a great gift set. You did a wonderful job.
