I sewed today!

It does feel good to do some sewing. I am still worn out, but I finished a purse I was making from scraps. I hope it is OK.
The front. The back. I used 2.5" squares and 6.5" squares for the prairie points.

I had my red hat group on Wed, and this is our group for the month. :) I'm on the back left and my Mom is on the front left. We had fun. Crazy ladies, lots of sisters. The lady, Mary, in the front middle is the Mom of 4 of the ladies -- all the pink hatters and then the red hat lady in the back to her right. What fun.

I also did some embroidery work today. Thank you, Vicki, for helping with the digitizing of things. This is for a Girl Scout quilt for our Service Unit Director. I have twice as many squares still out for signing. They should be signed this weekend and then I'll put it together. It will just be a wall hanging, so it won't be too difficult. I'm not sure how I want to quilt it yet. I don't particularly like quilting signature quilts, but....

I got my postcards made that I've been playing with for a month. Not my best, but I think they will have to do.

It feels really good to get behind the sewing machine doesn't it?
