Take a Look at This!

Last year at retreat I fell in love with the “Two Hour Purse” that many of the participants had.  The purse was made at the previous retreat that I hadn’t been able to attend.  I looked for the pattern and finally found it.  I made mine this retreat. 
I quite a bit enjoyed the bag as I carried it through Customs going to Jamaica.  It was also great when it was time to carry the camera, book and knitting to the beach.  Pics of our time in Jamaica will come soon.  I did make some adjustments and some mistakes.  Do you really think that it is a 2 hour project? This is left over backing from the “KING”.

I have managed to get caught up on the blogs and the laundry is going.  We arrived home late last night.  The camera (new and I don’t know how to run it) battery is dead.  I managed to get 1 quick picture off of it (above) before it died again.
I am off to do some more laundry and I need to workout….boy do I need to work out. The food was great.  

The airplane project was my never ending pair of socks.  They are getting close.

Just Another Quilter


  1. J.E.A.L.O.U.S.!!!! Can't wait to see the photos of the trip;) I could use some beach right now;) Love the purse;) And that it has memories already, even better;)
    Happy Quilting!!

  2. You can have the beach, but I do want to see the pictures! *wink* The purse is really cute! Glad it works well for you. ---"Love"

  3. I think seventhsister has it right: jealous! The purse is great (though those projects that tell you how long it takes to make them are always short) and I look forward to seeing your vacation photos.

  4. I'm with Love. Not a beach person here, but still want to see your pictures! Never believe a title that says "Make it in (take your pick) hours." They never tell you about the prep time involved.


  5. I think your bag is the Tulip bag. Love your fabric. I made my daughter one for Christmas. I am very sure that it took me more than 2 hours.
    Can't wait to see your pictures.
