Countdown to Christmas Nearing the Finish Line

Hi there CQer's! I hope you are all near ready for the upcoming holiday. Nearing the countdown to Christmas and this will be ready for gift giving as I'm ready to cut the back, make the lining and put this little gem together. This along with what seems like a zillion other things is almost there. Thought you might like a peek before I continue. Off to JoAnn's Fabrics to get something suitable for the back then I will get it ready to attach the purse frame. My dear friend loves birds and belongs to a "Bird Club" and now she will be able to attend meetings and get together's in "style". It sure has been fun to make and more with be springing forth eventually. I still have the 3 Bridal bags to finish (finished one) but they had to be tabled until the holidays are over. They are Keepsakes anyway and it will be along time before the young ones will be ready for that walk down the isle.
 A big thank you goes out to Pat Winter (link on the sidebar) for teaching this creative type of Art and if it hadn't been offered at the AG this last year I may have never taken it up. Hugs Pat!  xoxo
Off and runnin' still lots to do...........

Hi Everyone:  This past week I received an order from Fancy Crazys that was way past being ok. She showed a selection of fabrics in blue (set up in photo in pinwheel fashion). They all looked great. I paid $10 and when they arrived only a very few were the same as the photo. A number of them were unusable totally ugly prints that would not be suitable for CQ. or for washing your kitchen floor.   I wrote her to tell of my displeasure and gave her several days to reply. She did not, so in fairness I am giving fair warning. I hate doing this, but..............I also hate being cheated.

I also received an order from Gypsy Feather which was outstanding. She has some Embellishment kits that are beyond awesome. They come in a "gift box" with clear window all set up in a beautiful arrangement and tied with a lovely bow. Too pretty to even open up, but you know I will.  Her fabrics were also 20 times nicer in person than in the photo online which is saying something.  I can't say enough about the quality and presentation of her goodies. 

Thankfully, I can say the first order mentioned is the only time I have had to leave a negative comment. 
You all have a wonderful weekend!    Denise
