Something fun!

I'm switching gears for a little while this week and concentrating on something I love doing and that's creating something in crazy quilting!  Most of you know that both our boys are getting married and one of the weddings is May 14th and I needed to get busy on the crazy quilted clutch purse I'm making for Julia.  Today I sat down and actually finished it and had a totally good time doing it too!

Here is the front....

Clicking on the pictures should embiggen them for you!

Now I'm on to making a birdcage veil (wish me luck).
