Linderella's Rocks!~~~

Like many of you, I LOVE beautiful fabrics!!! So, yesterday I decided to take a class at my local quilt shop, Linderella's!!! I had the most fun meeting 4 new ladies in my community who are true quilters. Dores, Kathy, Mimi and Linda had all taken classes together and I was the newbie....There is something about us crafters though....We know no strangers and love to share ideas....
This is the product of the class.....It is the Manhattan Handbag and it is going to be my wonderful MIL 92nd birthday gift in May!! The Moda fabrics blended well together and I think she will love it....Its not professional mind you, but I sure did have alot of fun making it for her.....Now I know how those magnetic snap closures go into bags!!!Cool........
So, short post today everyone....If you are ever in the central part of North Carolina and happen to be near Pinehurst NC, go by and check out Linderellas Quilt Shop.... Carl and Linda are the awesome owners and are absolutely wonderul at helping you with your quilting supply needs~~~ Happy stitching (and quilting) everyone~~~ Faye

What a wonderful treat for your MIL, and great tidbit you learned! I always feel if one thing is learned the class is worth it - not to mention the friendships!

Beautiful bag Faye. Your MIL is going to love it.

The bag is lovely and so are the fabrics that you used! Your MIL will absolutely love it and if she doesn't you can send it my way. LOL!. I love bags. I probably have close to a dozen patterns but have only made one and that was a gift for my sister. Congrats on a class finish!

What a nice birthday gift! You know, I have a birthday in October. LOL!
I love taking classes. I agree with you about never meeting a stranger. We all share a common "thread".

I should be cleaning, but I got started reading your blog and had to catch up. I love, love your spring stitching projects and the way you finished them. The green ricrac is wonderful.

Your bag is also great, and your MIL will be thrilled. Linderella's sounds like a dangerous place, you enabler, you.

What a beautiful purse! And a great idea for your MIL's birthday. What do you get for a 92 yr old? I might steal your idea--my MIL is 83 this year.
