My Skeleflora Purse Class was today

What an exciting day! I spent most of my day hooking and learning the craft of constructing a purse. When I first read the instructions I thought O My this is going to be a painful process but Jennifer Manuell , Fish Eye Rugs explained the instructions very well along with sharing her personal pitfalls she has found designing and hooking her last '20' purses. These will be important experiences as I progress onto the sewing and attaching of handles.

I also attend the Opening Reception tonight for the Fibre Art Festival, it took a little effort to go back out into that rainy cold air but it was all worth it; that glass of red wine warmed me up! and the chatter with some of the girls was worth the effort.

I finally decided on a purse background as you can see in the photo. These may not be the colors that most people would pick but I like them and I guess that is all that matters.

Thought I'd share a display from Amherst, this is Lisa Martin's work part of many local Fibre Art Festival Exhibits throughout the town this week.
