This bluebird is the latest trend in tree bling in my neck of the woods. I got this shot from my window over the kitchen sink.
I've been working on this shawl once again. I started it over a year ago, but I ran out of yarn, and had to wait to finish it till I tracked down some of the same lot number. Just about four more motifs, and I'll be able to attach this edging to the shawl.
Also, I've been working on a new spring purse. I'd never sewn one before so...
I picked out some fabric and gave it a whirl...A look inside...
Here's the final look. It matches several of my summer outfits so I'm pleased with it. I used a printout for the free pattern I found over at the Sew Mama Sew! blog.
Yard bling, I feel very rich, indeed.
Hope y'all have a wonderful week!
Hello from Michigan, Love the photos of the Bluebird and Robin hopefully we will see them soon too. Your New Spring Purse is very pretty and is your shawl. Hugs JudyReplyDelete
Your new purse is awesome! Love the fabric choices...you did a great job and I'm sure you'll get lots of compliments. Can't wait to see your finished shawl. Sure looks like spring in your neck of the woods! We are getting a bit closer. We just have a few snow piles left. I'll be one happy camper once all the snow is gone :) Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)ReplyDelete

I need to print out this post and hang it on the fridge, looking at your purse keeps me excited about mine. I know, yes, get off the computer and go get the shamrock apron done so I can make my purse. I am:D
