Thread: A "Hush" bribe....

    A "Hush" bribe....

    A good friend at the Tuesday night meeting of the Strippers and Hookers would not hush about my different purses. She didn't want to make any "da*n" purse but would give me the "d" fabric if I'd make it for her.

    I told her I'd show her how to make one but again she didn't want to make the "da*n" thing. So in order to hush her up (she's around 70) I went and got fabric I knew she'd been eyeing and made a "hush up" Bow Tuck for her along with a little zipper pouch.

    Hope it hushes her up (kidding...she's a dear). She makes absolutely wonderful detailed quilt tops so I can't imagine why she wouldn't do a purse.

    It is always nice to receive something that you may could make but don't want to. How special you are to do this for a friend. Love the colors you chose.

    I am not fond of making purses. So, maybe that is her reason.

    I don't like to make things other than quilts either. I tried to buy a purse sample at a quilt show, but they would only sell me the pattern. I knew I would never make it, but my friend that was with me said if I bought all the materials, she would make it. It turned out great and she is now in the purse business.

    One thing rings true of quilters, they have warm and generous hearts and give, give and give( we all know the joy that brings!)

    love the purse colors. You did good. I hope to be able to make one later on and hope it looks as good as yours.
    Thanks for the pics.

    If I harp on you long enough and loud enough, would you make me a "da*n" purse too to hush me up?
    Just kidding but those are really very cute. Although I make quilts, I wouldn't attempt that.

    How nice of you to "spoil" her a little. Esp. with somethings so pretty and feminine.

    Thank y'all. I get to be her friend and that is what is great I've known her for close to 18 years or so and she is still as much a kick in the pants as she was then.
