Burning the Midnight Oil

Have been so busy in recent weeks, working long hours with little movie-watching time or much else. However, did take time this weekend to make a new "summer" purse for myself. I so loved the small gray wool version I made for winter, so I duplicated the design. The size is compact and perfect. This time I used the medieval embroidery design I created (posted about some time ago) and paired with some favorite vintage buttons.

  2. Wow! I like the little tassel thingie, too. Nice colors and a very elegant strap. I've got a bunch of public domain celtic clip art I should copy to a CD and send to you. You could really go nuts with it -- if you ever get any time! See http://grundlepod.blogspot.com/p/some-illuminated-things.html for some examples.

  12. St. Ainolopa - oh, no worries and I'm often in the same boat and feel I don't wander out there in blog land enough to visit others. Real life often intervenes for us all. Too much to do in the day.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. I was happy to see your new entries too.
