I'M BACK ~ ~ ~

Actually, I haven't been gone ~ I've just been a lazy blogger!!! Not much has been going on ~ except this purse front ~ I have a class tomorrow morning ~ here ~ and have been trying to come up with a design. So here it is!! It needs more embellishment, me thinks, but considering I just started it last night, I'm doing pretty good!! The gals wanted some different techniques so I've incorporated french knots, a chain stitch, cat's paw, needle felting, applique along with hooking!! We'll see how they like it ~ I'll be sure to let you know!!

Last weekend, Sonny and I went to Prairie Peddler ~ a show that I did for years and haven't been in for quite a while now. It was fun to go back and see a few old friends who still do the show and just wander thru the woods sampling funnel cakes and blooming onions!! That was the really fun part!! I don't miss that show a bit ~ I was so happy to feel that way!! It's a two weekend show in the woods and the weather for the past two weeks has been horrible here in Ohio ~ cold, damp, rainy ~ yuk!! I was feeling pretty smart for giving up that show!!

So, now I must call it a night ~ I'm fixing lunch for the gals so I need to be up early to put a pie in the oven and make them some comfort food!!! Pictures to follow!!! Ta ta for now!

what a great purse that's going to be! I love that you hooked through the wool, added needle felting, plus some applique - very clever!

Love how you combined the different techniques.
I can't see how anyone, wouldn't like it.
