Did you read about the man who rode his horse into a bar and lassoed a customer? I believe it happened today. He was arrested. It looks like the gal on your purse could easily ride into a bar and lasso a customer and would simply receive complements on her skillfulness...Your bag is amazing.
This is my favorite class, too. I haven't stopped making bags either - just one more binding to sew on and I will be done with that one, and I've cut out the next one and have already started piecing it. The only thing I enjoy more than making them is using them. I know you will have fun with yours!
