But I did want to share a purse I finally finished this week. It is a textured crochet bag - perfect for little winter shopping outings.
I used a free Lion Brand pattern as my guide (www.marthastewart.lionbrand.com/patterns/L10211.html). I modified the sides to use a crochet cable rib pattern instead of the stitches in the instructions. I thought it looked nicer with my chunky blue wool. The inside got a muslin lining, while the wood handles (from JoAnn's craft store) were simply sewn on using extra yarn.
It is my plan this year to share more projects, tutorials and crafts on this blog. I'll try to give more detailed specs about how I created things. This community is all about sharing. :)
Of course I'll still show any decorating I've been up to...such as this winter white dining room:
The Tilda's World angels are still here, and nearby I piled some pretty fabric and ribbon notions to keep me inspired. I think I'd like to add more of this lavender color from the fabric corsage into the dining room:
These little trees were kept on display since it's still winter...
Stay warm my friends!
