I know I promised to show you more of my project I did for the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design but I'm waiting to get some pictures of it now that it's been framed. Hopefully I'll have that for you tomorrow (we actually have a wee bit of sun today which is much better for pictures).
So...in the meantime.....I've made myself a new purse! I surprised myself with the fact that I found everything I needed in my stash and didn't have to buy a single thing. Yay!! The original pattern is called 'The Gadabout' and is by Studio Kat Designs. Of course I changed it somewhat and added an additional pocket on the back as well as a recycled jean pocket to hold my keys. You can go HERE to see her selection of patterns, including the Gadabout. I'm toying with ordering the 'Walkabout Wallet' pattern and having a go at that too. Wonder how far my stash will stretch?
(btw - if you have a peek at the 'crazy quilt purses' category in my sidebar you can see some crazy quilted versions of this purse that I made earlier).

|INSIDE - there are more pockets than show in this picture.|
- Further on purses, THIS is an interesting design. No pattern that I can see, but it's definitely cute!
- THIS is probably something that you could get your man to make for you or if you're handy with tools you could make it yourself. It has so many uses!
- And HERE's another DIY wood project that would be very useful! I'd love one of these myself. I like the look of THIS one too. Alas the woodworking capability is non-existent with apartment life - no tools any more.
- Further on the DIY front, THIS looks like it would be easy to create and useful in so many areas of your home. It would make great gift baskets too!
Today your quote is from Billy Connelly...."A woman's mind is as complex as the contents of her handbag; even when you get to the bottom of it, there is ALWAYS something at the bottom to surprise you"
