PINK PURSE POUCH Steps to making it

The directions for cutting out the pieces for the Pink Purse Pouch are in Wed. Crossroads Chronicle (July 27th) and The Highlander July 28th.
The pieces look like these pictures. The first picture shows the side of the pouch used for cards and keys, etc. The 2nd picture shows the side for cell phone and camers. The rest of the pictures show all of the pieces cut and ready to sew together. Such simple construction. Next week, I'll put steps to construction. This little pouch is also great for carrying small articles for working on a quilting project or knitting,etc.

Florida Flower wall hanging

Don't know why time seems to fly faster in the summertime......mercy! I've had my son visiting me so I took a little vacation from my newspaper work and my blog work. I know you'll understand.
The Blue Hydrangeas are absolutely beautiful right now blooming in my front yard. THey seem to know that I am telling about them and they're showing off just how beautiful they can be!
Placement of the petals is very simple if you'll study this picture very carefully.
The fact that there are two of the blossoms on the square makes it gorgeous. I really think this is the prettiest block in the whole wall hanging.
Although............the next one, the Camilla is gorgeous and fun to make, too.

Blue Hydrangea

For ones of you in Florida who are making my applique Florida flowers project, just wanted you to see the real flower in color. My blue hydrangeas are in full bloom right exciting. There must be 25 blooms on one bush or plant. Amazing. Be sure to find the exact shade of blue for this project. It is most important. I know that they come in other colors, but the blue one just sets off this project with a zing!
