Last Week's Birthday Project

The sweet birthday girl :)

A wee little handkerchief embroidered with Proverbs 17:17.

This is when the quilting tools become very handy for getting your spacing even!

We Really Like Vera Bradley.

...I think that picture makes my purse look obnoxiously huge. But I always manage to fill it up! Tee hee.

Thank you for sharing the afternoon with us and for making my BD special!

We think your purse is very cute! :)

love, Jennifer

Keri said...

I like Vera too! I would love a bag as big as yours!

What a great idea to get spacing even! I embroidered a verse from S of S for David on a Christmas gift, and the letters were all scrunched up in places and widely spaced in the others. . . no wonder he never uses it! LOL

I too think your purse is very cute!

That's a very pretty hankerchief. Yes, your bag is huge :-) But, hey, if you're like me, you will use all of that space :-) I tell ya, my purse can become the bottom-less pitt very quickly. God Bless!

I have huge Vera purses, too... go with what works for you! I also have little ones. Variety is the spice of life :o)

Hi Lauren, I have a question for you. What style Vera Bradley bag does the woman on the far right have ? I looked on Vera's site, and I can't find that pattern any ware. Thanks!

Hi Lauren, I'm not sure if you know that the first part of Cranford is going to be on your local PBS station tonight, I don't know what time zone you'd be , but it's on at 9pm for me.
Have a great night! , Kaitlyn :)

I generally find that the larger my bag, the more stuff I "need" to tote around! :-) Your bag is very pretty. And what a sweet birthday gift!

I love Vera Bradley too! I have a Molly in the New Hope print, which I love, although sometimes I do think I need a bigger bag! lol Your purse is cute!

Looks like a wonderful birthday celebration. There are few things better than the blessing of friends! Love the handkerchief. :)
