Ahhhhh--would you believe that she ended up going to yet another quilt class???
I discovered a class for Tuesday night that was using a new ruler that I have liked when seeing things made with it--but had not had the time to study how to do--so what better way than in a class and with actually making something to bring home--
Here is the back side of my 'new purse'!!!
and I learned how to use these two items to make it--
both are so easy to do!!!!
Ok--I know you are 'dying' to see the front side of the purse????
Now is that not neat or what????
I do not 'do' evening classes--
my poor ole brain does not function as well--
and this class did run late--but I am happy with the purse--
course it could just be that funny cat print I used!!!!!

And here is the linning and pockets inside the purse!!

Here is a couple garden pictures--

And today I did get back to the 'inside' work--
It is getting better in here--but not done yet--
Here is the corner hutch--
all dressed up--
and I did get the top of the big new cupboard done--
decided there was just enough room on the top for my birdhouse collection--
the tan stuff is actually dyed cheesecloth that I got in NH along with those little lights--
the pretty green and blue eggs I found at Keepsakes while there!!!!

I do now have more floor space showing in the dinning room--
but still lots on the little table to decide what will go on the other 4 shelves--
plus I have not gotten down the dishes that I want to use here also from the kitchen cabinets!!!
there is tomorrow--right?????

Last night it got really chilly here--
but today it has warmed up nicely and the sun is out--
