A bit more progress

It has been incredibly hot the past three or four days so I stayed in the water most of the day. I know I have deadlines approaching, but it is supposed to rain tomorrow and I will spend the entire day stitching up a storm...(get it???storm...rain......sorry about that) anyway, I didn't stitch today however I do have some progress from yesterday to share. What was supposed to be a small book tote became a purse instead. The girl image was too sweet to just carry books around. Also, I had the perfect glass bead trim and ecru crocheted laces to use.This purse looks great with faded jeans. I noticed as I was stitching away and it was on my lap. Kind of a dusty periwinkle blue color. Forever in blue jeans...................................................
The little seed packet purse received a bit of embellishing. It took a while to make the three beaded bees, which I think just had to be included. I sat and made several bees one day and misplaced the container I put them in. One day I will find it and laugh when I see 20 tiny beaded bees.
I love the thread I made the pink flower with. It was from House of Stitches in LaPorte, and I still have a gift certificate from NANI...guess what I'm buying?????

Bath time....I hope to start stitching bright and early. I can't believe I am actually hoping for rain.


  1. Nice bag Pat, I agree it will look great with faded denim.. and "The Bees!!!!! Oh how sweet..Yes the ones you made will come forth when they are ready!! Hmmmm......

    Looked like rain here late today, but it broke up before it reached my house. We are in a sauna here. Three diget degrees tomorrow. We sure need a cold, really we need an artic front. LOL
