A little late...

Here are some pics of a purse I completed awhile back...another linen, patchwork infusion!

I decided to keep this one, finally finished the straps, and am currently using it. I used rivets for the first time - lots of fun, but a little scary & tricky. I guess the idea of cutting a hole in a newly completed bag is a little nerve-wracking - it's just like those damn grommets!

And here's something a little special: a while back I received an email from Elizabeth in the Netherlands. She was requesting scrap fabric pieces to make an international quilt for her soon to be niece/nephew. Quilters from all over the world sent her pieces. In return I received this lovely little package - some pretty prints, and a lovely bookmark. I can't wait to see how her quilt turns out - isn't that such a lovely idea???

Other random tidbits:

-MishMash StashBash is in full swing!!! It's my first time organizing anything like this, and so far I'm loving it.
-I've been swapping like crazy over at Designer fabric swappy-poo
-We're going on our first portage trip of the summer in Algonquin Park...time to get my paddling arm ready.
