A Rug and a Purse

I made this rug several years ago - it was a great way to use up some of the worms that I had been accumulating and I was very pleased with the way it turned out. It measures 24" x 46" - a good size!

A few months ago, my friend Janet came to our quilt meeting carrying this purse that was a perfect match to my rug. It's made of leather and I might have to try and make one just like it. I have a huge collection of leather & suede skirts that I've bought at the thrift stores through the years and have never used them for anything yet. Fun design, huh?

I can't believe how well the purse and rug match! I love them both, Gayle. You create such amazing things. I've no doubt that you'll be carrying a similar purse very soon!

Your rug design is a perfect way to use up small bits. The purse would go perfectly with the rug. But who carries a purse and a rug around! LOL.

I think she should just give you the purse. You were meant to have it. I used my cherry dishes tonight. Mimi
