Another Blue Blouse and More Purses

More purses, this one is my own pattern and some of my favorite fabric.




This is the back of this bag, I had just enough fabric and isn't it nice how the pattern centered for me?



Here is the front. I really like this bag and Kaitlyn suggested I just keep it for myself. I would but it is too small for all my junk!





Now my other blue blouse. McCall's 5471, which I made in here
I wear this blouse quite a bit but only under sweaters, it is a bit short and a 40-something woman should never show her belly in public! I lengthened the pattern 2" and this blouse is just right, declares Goldilocks. I like my BWOF blue blouse but I really, really like this blouse.

Here is the cuffs.




Here is the blouse, shirting from Joann's




More sewing, I spent the afternoon at my friend's quilt shop. We worked on 3 quilt tops and had so much fun sewing together. Do you know how fast you can make a quilt top when one person sews and the other cuts and presses? Fast, I tell you.
Also, I won prize over at Bubblegum 4 Breakfast and I just read Brigitte went shopping for me today. I am going to be stalking the mailman, how fun. Thanks Brigitte.
