"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart." —Hebrews 12:2-3

Friday Finish :)

Hey there everybody!

Wanna see the Friday Finish I have over at Primitive Betty
my nifty, new purse :)
I bought this purse on clearance at J.C.Penney a while ago.  I loved the quilted front on it.  I did not like the plastic label on the front. I immediately thought that I could cover it with a small stitch.

I used 28ct black linen and stitched over one.  It is a free pattern from Betty, called Simply Stitch.  I used a grey DMC and DMC 4170, a light variegated floss.  I love it.  It is so unique and all mine!! :)

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!  Thank you for all your wonderful comments.  You make me smile. :)

Stitching and praying,

Love it! I am so impressed. You just made your handbag look remarkable! I mean the quilting is pretty but by you adding the design looks rich. Fantastic idea.
