Odds and Ends

I made this purse last night to give to one of my Thursday clients. This little lady has carried another purse I made for her for so long now that the handles are fraying. It's nice to see someone enjoying your handiwork so much that it's falling apart! LOL So, I'm going to surprise her with a new one. I took some liberties with the pattern and did not add the outside pockets on this one. I hope she won't miss them.
These are fabric postcards. I will be participating in a swap for the next few months so I've been practicing. The graduation cap went along with a grad gift. Aren't they cute? They're addicting, too. lol As if I needed anything else to occupy my time.
This prayer shawl went to another client who has had a rough month. They were on vacation, actually only the third day out, when she fell and broke her kneecap. They were sent back home for surgery. I gave her the shawl on Saturday when her hubby brought her to the shop. The color is not true in this picture. It's a deep purple and lilac.

Time to get ready for work. I'd rather be quilting!! lol

It's so wonderful to see the things you make. How did your client like the new purse?

Postcards are addicting! I like the way both of yours came out. Love the multiple colors on the edge of the first one.

You have so many talents!
