  12. The fabrics are ADORABLE!!!! as for the purses, anyone who hasn't started it's addicting, I bought 4 clasps but picked out fabric in the end for many many more. Once you get started with a theme, each piece of fabric has it's own reason for picking out coordinating fabrics for the sides AND the lining. Enjoy! i know I did

  18. Love the new Andover Fabrics. I'm especially drawn to the Red Thread Collection. Red, black and white is one of my favorite color combinations. That being said, I'm totally loving your coin purse.

    It's so nice to read all the blogs I've discovered from the Wicked blog hop. So many quick projects to get instant satisfaction as well as fantastic gift ideas.

  21. Thanks for the tips. I love to photograph outside, but I never used reflectors. I just ordered some, so we'll see how my photography improves after I get them. I took photography classes way back in college, when we developed photos in a darkroom! Digital is so much easier and cheaper too.

    1. Hi Darryl, you don't need reflectors ever...but if you want sharper or more flattering pics then try it...yours are always great...but you will note a huge difference in sharper colours and hues..

  22. I just purchased the coin purse pattern. Also ordered the frame. I've been so inspired by all of the coin purses you showed us that I just have to make one for myself.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Can't wait to see all of the coin purses in the blog hop.
