Busy weekend

Toiletry purse for dear daughter 2, who left for gospel tent camp very early today.
She has wished for a toiletry purse like this for a long time, so earlier this week I went fabric shopping so she could have it in her favourite colours.
The photos are a little skewed colour wise, but they give you an impression though :-)

We went bling shopping on Friday and had a great time picking out the shoe charms and the purple pearl that embellish the zipper :-)

The Town and City quilt is done, finally !

It looks good, but does not fit anywhere in my house. Long time ago I decided to give this one as a donation to care quilts for children with long term diseases.
That is my plan and I am sticking to it - it just have to come with me to show & tell on August guild meeting first.
The size of the quilt is 50" x 75".

Except for a little piece of grey fabric, all fabrics are from stash, front and backing :-)

Lovely toiletry bag - I'd never thought of making one, I seem to have always been given them. I love your quilt - I think picture quilts, with houses, trees etc are so attractive.

You make such beautiful things. The toiletry bag beats any that I've seen on sale, and I'm sure your daughter will love it just that much more because you made it for her. The quilt is so wonderful, and it is so generous of you to donate it for such a good cause.
