I wanted something easy for the first lesson. I phoned and asked if she would like to make a purse......"that would be cool" was the reply. I asked what colours and she said red.............oh, don't have many reds I replied..............I like purple............okay. I looked to see what I had and decided that whatever the colour it was do-able.
Grandpa and I drove over and picked her up. We stopped at the fabric store and bought some cording for a strap................red and bright green were her choices. There were beads in a rack that caught her eye too, so we grabbed a tube of them. Then home we came.
As soon as one row was completed, another fabric was chosen. It didn't have to match, it didn't have to blend. This young lady could give lessons in scrappy quilts. Nothing mattered except which stitch she was using.
Fancy stitches, cats faces, fish flying, sea turtles swimming. red roses and bugs! What more could a girl ask for?
We went back up to the living-room for my coffee break and Morgan dug out her beads and started to sew them on.
It is one pretty classy purse. It had a few things in it to take home.........a little notebook and I believe there may have been a stuffed animal or two!
