One of the presents I bought myself yesterday was a handmade purse that I found in a neat gallery of only 18 artisans.
The straps are made from the legs of a pair of faded brown jeans, and inside, there are pockets, and belt hooks from the same pants. The sides and bottom of the bag are also made from the jeans, while the rest of the bag, is upholstery material cut in strips and sewn down the middle.
I fell in love with it, and I know how much work went into it, which made me appreciate it all that much more.
SERIOUSLY? Another purse?
Are ya kiddin' me?
I am late blogging tonight, cause I've had my nose in a book all evening. I highly recommend it.
It's a great summer read.
The Murderer's Daughters, by Randy Susan Meyers. I bought mine at Target. L teases me because I am not a fan of the library.
We were busy at the studio today, but honestly, I think we are on 'summer time'.
L is in charge of Walking on Sunshine rugs.
I am continuing improving my relationship with Miss Cranberry.
We made this one today. 3'x5', browns and yellows, with a touch of maroon.
I started another rug on the Cranbrook, but this one is with selvedge.
I am enjoying my 'orderless' state. I have so many things I want to weave, and this gives me the time to experiment with texture and color, two of my favorite things.
It's good to slow down the pace for the summer. Gives me time to think up a giveaway.
Any ideas??? Something fun!!!
