A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Searching for.....

I have been searching all over the internet to try to locate a copy of a pattern that was issued pre-2004 for a combination Hussif and Pursif  designed by Julie Craig of Attic Heirlooms Designs.  I will finally resort to throwing it out to you to see if any of you would happen to either have a copy or know of how I could locate one.  The pattern has a lovely needle hussif that fit inside a purse (which could also be carried as a normal purse if you wished). 

The now-defunct CQMagOnline magazine had at least a couple of articles about different people creating their versions of the pattern and I would love to create one as well.  I know, before you say it, that I could come up with my own pattern, but there are elements of the original that I just love and would like to learn how to make.

Today's quote is from Dan Zadra....  "Take action on your ideas.  Procrastination is the mortal enemy of spontaneous brilliance"
