Summer Treats

An online quilt group I am in traded gifts for the summer solstice. These are the goodies I received from my birthday-twin Susie.

Such fun stuff, and all perfect for me!

That flip flop fat quarter was just screaming "new purse" so I found a coordinating lime green in my stash (I have almost as many lime green prints as I have lime green shoes!).

At my LQS, The Patchwork Penguin, I rummaged through the sale room and found those darling star buttons. The packaged set was called "Island Sunrise" which made it perfect for a summer flip flop purse. I had the bamboo handles waiting for just the right purse. I combined elements from some of the patterns I have made recently and came up with this.

While rummaging through the sale room I also grabbed some bolt ends of Jane Sassaman's Floral Fantasy fabric. Wait til you see my studio when I finish! I'll get photos of the curtains up here tomorrow, and the rest as I finish things.

I love all of the bright colors, the goodies and a wonderful purse! I'm a bag lady myself. You can never have enough purses!
