An actual finish






Hubby took me to a quilt shop this weekend since I wanted to get a new foot for my Bernina. While there he spotted these leather handles for tote bags and purchased this pretty rose one for me.
So , I was determined to start a bag and complete it, so 2 days later, here stands my bag.
I am so proud that I actually completed it and did not let it sit there for days.
I leave you with some new blooms in my flower beds.
