August Charming Girls' Quilt Club Finishes

Coin purse zippers are all set in. I use mine for my camera.

Monkey wrench blocks done! I love them.

Raider bag done!
I used buttons from My Hubby's dress uniform. I saved them for many years.

Here is Army purse number one, finished. It is a Kimie's Quilts pattern, Pocketbook Purse. I have made this pattern many times. It is a nice gift.

Here is Army bag number 2, finished. It has many nice pockets and is a nice size for everyday.

I mad these for my Aunt and Cousin. My Cousin's little girl just joined the Army. I thought that they might like to show their pride and that they would appreciate the buttons from My Hubby's dress uniform.
So that is five finishes for August, so far. I have not finished my stitcheries or make the wallet or strawberry pincushion. I did make my tea towel. I just need to go to the post office. I am not sure if all of these finishes really count for CGQC. That is up to Kelly. I am just happy to have some finishes. I love seeing everyone's goals and finishes.
