A swap thing, and something for MYSELF.

For the October Holidays quilt block swap. This block pattern is from the Sep/Oct '05 issue of Quiltmaker magazine. (Sometimes it does pay to keep old magazines around... :) )

And because I got a little tired of sending all my creative work away to other people, I made a new tote bag for myself. The pattern is Roomy Patchwork Purse from Better Homes & Gardens, and the fabric (except for the handle) is from Moda's Urban Couture line. The loop-and-button closure was my own addition, and I put pockets in the lining. A bag without pockets is like a car without cup holders, in my opinion.
