Sometimes I think North Americans think that this is the centre of the universe. Not so! All sorts of marvellous things are going on everywhere. My friend in CR made me this wee bag as a thank you gift for some materials I sent her. She cannot get anything but the bare essentials for quilting apparently and what she can get is very expensive. She got hold of some Lutradur and painted and stitched it into a gorgeous wall quilt which won first prize at a big quilt show in Prague- and won a new Bernina sewing machine ! With her new machine and a LOT of talent and not much material, look what she has created. It is tough to say but I THINK it has some painted Lutradur on top of gold satin on top of a cotton print. This bag is beautifully made - perfectly precise and so very elegant. Inside is a little pouch with a velcro closing that would hold a credit card and ID. All in all, a lovely gift and so very much appreciated. Enjoy the pictures and I will enjoy the little purse.
