This blog should be called "The Adventures of a Fabric Junkie!". I am passionate about fabric, threads, colours and textures. I can record my crazy quilting, sane quilting, embroidery and everything else that I consider important in my life.

My Garden block for Patti

Here is a photo scan of the block I did for Patti in the DYB6 swap. Patti didn't specifically ask for a garden theme block but it is one of her passions in life so we all went that way. Also the colours that Patti used for her blocks seemed to really lend themselves to flowers and bright pinks and purples.

Purse for Laurie's wife, Marion.

This is the second ATC size purse that I made. It was ordered by Laurie from work for his wife Marion. She is into gardening, so I gave her the watering can with "water" trickling out onto the pearl and diamante flower, music; so she has a music note charm on the top flap and she and Laurie have been whale-watching while on holiday so I just happened to find the gold whale button which I put on the bottom piece of fabric because it reminded me of the colour of the ocean. The beads along the bottom of this purse are Indian furnace glass in various colours.

ATC size coin purse for Caitlin

This is one of several small purses I have been asked to make for people at work. This one is for Caitlin who is nearly eighteen. She wanted lots of "OTT Bling-Bling" so I gave her lots of clunky beads around the edge and bright coloured fabrics and beads. The purses measure just over 3 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches with a fold over flap at the top. It was Caitlin who first suggested that my ATCs would make great little coin purses so I made her one then someone else wanted one for his wife, someone else for her daughter, etc, etc.
