The fabric that's beside the purse is what i'm using for the lining. This purse was my 17 year old daughters idea because she didn't like the flower that normally goes with the purse. The applique patter is from Everlaughter.....www.everlaughter.com.
Last Saturday was Junior/Senior prom for my daughter and her boyfriend. They both looked so cute.
I don't know if anyone has ever visited the blog Attic24, but this lady sure knows how to use color. She has some of the most gorgeous designs on her blog, and a lot of free patterns. That is where I came up with my next tote bag. The pattern that is on her blog makes a huge bag which just isn't me so going from her pattern and cutting down the rounds this is what I came up with.
A small version of her extremely large tote. Since my camera has a mind of it's own and doesn't cooperate sometimes the colors I used were a dark chocolate brown and a tan. It's the perfect size tote for me, something I can throw my keys wallet and a few other things into and go. If you haven't checked out the blog you really should head on over there. She has her home beautifully and tastefully decorated with her crochet creation and it's a lot of fun to read.
We have some wild honeysuckle growing at the corner of our fence an it has been drawing in the butterflies like crazy, and it smells nice too.
I accidentally bumped into the bush earlier this afternoon and a butterfly tornado came out of the bush. It was so pretty.
That pretty much sums up what I've been up to lately. Hope everyone has a wonderful week and Happy Crocheting:)
