I finished my new purse! I am so happy with how it turned out. I spent the better part of Sunday working on it, but finished it up right before dinner. Here's a pic of the finished product. It is so funny to me how I can be so hard on myself and doubt my abilities. I was about 2/3 of the way through the purse project and caught myself thinking "who do you think you are? This isn't going to work or even look like a purse when you are done." Does anyone else ever feel like this? I have learned over the years to trudge through those thoughts and keep moving and in this case, I am so glad I did. I love my new purse. It sits just right on my shoulder, it's not overly heavy and it holds all my stuff.
Here's a sneak peak of my next project. I'm making new placemats for the dining room table. I love these colors together! I can't wait to see them finished and on the table.
I'm going to design my own pattern and stitch them up tomorrow. Then, it will be onto the next project.
