Good day, Friends! Miss Baby’s started asking last week, “Mom, are you making another quilt?” when she saw all the new quilts I was cranking out. Answer is, yes — Mom here is making yet another quilt. For Miss Baby, that means more fabrics to play with while Mom is busy sewing/quilting away! Here is a sneak peek of my “Town Square” quilt. I just love clean lines and straight seams — don’t you?
I am totally changing subject here. So I have been walking around feeling a bit self-conscious about my “airline carry-on” purse since many of you commented that you don’t carry large purses in this post. I caught myself gawking at other women’s purses, and mentally tallying the number of large purses versus the number of smaller purses while I was at the store. I did tell you I was self-conscious about how large my purse is…. until I read the reasoning Mrs. Margaret Thatcher gave for her large handbag — “A woman’s handbag is her house” (italics mine). Thank you, Mrs. Thatcher! I now feel comforted, and infinitely better about trotting across town with my
house purse in tow (I am of course saying that in a tongue-in-cheeky sort of way)! Click here for this fun read more about what Mrs. Thatcher and the Queen Mother carried in their purses.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have enjoyed my Town Square sneak peek, as well as the fun bit on “handbag vanity”. :) Have a great day!
p.s. I also carry Miss Baby’s supplies bag in addition to my large purse. A “beast of burden” comes to mind…
