Thanks to all the Veterans

Since today is Veteran’s Day, I just wanted to send out a big thank you to all veterans.  I know how much it means to just get a “thanks for what you do” as I am also a veteran.  While I haven’t had to actually travel to the desert and fight with my comrades, my thoughts are with them everyday.  I am so thankful for all they do and all they sacrifice.

Another Purse

I made this purse for a co-workers niece.  I like the way it turned out.  I made it from a pattern but can’t tell you which one as I can’t find it amongst my many patterns.  I found the pattern on someone’s blog, I think.  Anyway, it’s just the cutest thing.  I love the ruffle around the top and this was such a quick and easy purse to make.blue-purse

Purses

I made a couple of purses for the daughters of one of the docs I work with.  I did use a pattern but it really became an original since I’ve never been able to follow a pattern the right way.  The handle was my own design as well.  It was supposed to be a dc handle but I have problems with finding the last stitch in the row, so it turned out to be a zigzag handle.  It adds character and I really like the way it came out.
