Busy This Week

I finished a bridal shower gift for my nephew's soon-to-be-wife. Isn't this Alexander Henry print cute, cute, cute?
I finished a couple of tea towels to match...
...and two knitted dishcloths, the green one with a "pear" design, and the yellow one with an "apple":

Might as well set up housekeeping in luxurious style, I say!
I also finished a summer purse for moi. I've been sewing hobo bags for Blackeyed Susan's friends for weeks--now it was my turn. Another Alexander Henry fabric--pink goldfinches:

Inside, I have green confetti dots, and cuter-than-cute China Dolls (yep, another A. Henry):

Now, to begin the daunting job of transferring purse stuff. I'm one of those whose purses are registered with the FBI as Lethal Weapons. Heavy as dirt, but...I will probably have what you need if you need it. Dental floss? Extra buttons? Five lipsticks? (I'm a Lipstick Girl.)
I'll let you know when I come up for air.

You make such lovely things. I hope that bride-to-be knows how blessed she is to have such nice homemade things right off the bat.
