A bag for a friend

I have made this bag for my friend's birthday. She wanted purple and turquoise. I think this batik works great. The handle is braided.  The dark purple on the front of the bag is a stone that has a whole for a necklace. I am using it as part of the closure.

I have been fiddling with making some pincushions too. Maybe I will get some pictures tomorrow.
I am also going to start my Shirley Temple quilt. I have it all laid out and ready to go . My husband help me make a design wall too that will be easy to put up and take down. He is clever!

Nice! I think that is the most gorgeous fabric! Purple and turquoise is one of my fave combos too :)
