What are you most proud of? I know, I took the challenge too literally. But, I had a great time building this purse. The working title of this purse is: "You're From Outer Space My Little Pizza Face," based on the aliens on the back pocket and the pepperoni pizza polka dots on the front. Did I mention Italy's flag is green/white/red. I am no longer uncomfortable with combinations of bright red and kelly green. Its quite nice actually. Next color challenge: french blue and yellow. Oh my, I just noticed the popcorn box is blue and yellow. Wish me luck.

Uh-oh! Shoestring, I like this bright little bag! You stepped right out of your comfort zone and you are entering mine. The red and green is a good start, blues and yellows are also there. Let me know when you get to brights and pastels and I'll meet you at the corner.

Hi there 2strings. I'm laughing, and enjoying your comments about brights and pastels. I finally caught up with your reply about visiting you sometime. Yes, I will do that. I'll give you some advance warning. Please let me know if you have a quilt show or fabric, or sewing event in your neck of the woods. When I visit will you teach me how to use PDF Pro 10? I'm a ditz wihen it comes to software. By the way, I still haven't figured out how to use the "reply to this comment bar." Once I type a message, how do to send it?

I'm afraid I can't help you with PDF Pro 10. I'm strictly a Mac user and that makes PDF files super easy to make and combine. for the reply to a comment I just hit the return key and the reply goes up. As for quilt shows, Lincoln has the International Quilt Museum with one of the largest collections of quilts in the world. They change the displays several times a year and keep the vast majority of the quilts in a climate controlled environment until they have a turn to be displayed. We're just a big small town situated smack dab in the middle of the prairie.

For a few days I was able to post a reply using Windows Explorer, but a few minutes ago I tried again and it didn't work. So I'm trying again now in Google Chrome, which has worked for me before, so we'll see. This is an adorable little bag. It is always fun to see what fun little "bling" you add to your bags. I've never done it and seeing yours is such an inspiration. And I love the blue and yellow combination, though I don't recall that I've ever used it. I'm looking forward to seeing whatever you come up with.

I just clicked once for each of those posts in Google Chrome. Now I'm back in Internet Explorer and I bet it won't work again.

Hello AllThatPatchWork. I know what you are going through. I can't use the "reply to this comment" option. It never works for me. Hey, now that I have your attention can you tell me . . . have you every tried the French Braid quilt strips technique for your quilts? With your eye for color combos and clever mind --I bet you'd be amazing at it. -your pal Linda (Shoestring).
