Whom have I in heaven but You?
And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You.
My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26

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,
Vickie

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.
