A New Project Began and Finished Today

Here is where I started:
It's the front of a worn out leather tote bag that I cut apart last year.

I also used this vest and these fabrics/trims:

I had no pattern, but puttered around all morning and by noon, I had this:

A new animal print handbag! 

I plan to use it with the jacket that is behind it in this photo:

I am pretty happy with it. Of course, there are a few areas that I wish had turned out better--namely the zipper on the top.  I used the zipper from the vest.

It was finished for less than half a day before I decided to change it. :)
I added some black boa to cover the black/white animal print.
I like it better.

I have two animal print jackets that I think I can use this bag with.

I deleted a bunch of comments yesterday. Darn. I thought I was just deleting the comments in the spam folder, so when it asked if I was sure I wanted to forever delete the comments, I said yes. 
So if anyone had come back and noticed their comment was gone, I am so sorry. Believe me it was not intentional.

Fall Pumpkin Block

I recently made this pumpkin block, but I am not happy with it. Now that it is done, I really do not like the fabric I chose for the leaves.

I guess I will toss it in the pile of completed blocks that I don't know what to do with.

A few weeks ago I went to a quilt exhibit at our local museum. I thought this winter quilt was interesting.
Here is a close up of the snowman in the mitten:

Doesn't it look like a very warm quilt to curl up with near the Christmas tree?

This red/white quilt was DH's favorite:

Earlier this spring I finished these blocks and sewed them all into a tree skirt.

I never quilted it. Now I don't think I want it for a tree skirt! I don't know what I want to do with these blocks. I only know that it will be a pain in my ample posterior to pick it all out! Don't you just hate when you change your mind after it's all sewn? Or maybe I am the only person who does that.
