Garnet Purse Finished
Another finish! Don't you just love when that happens? This is the second one this month; I must be on a roll! Here is the Garnet Purse, all finished and ready to be carried about.
I decided a bit of sunshine wouldn't hurt it, so I took this photo on the ladder in our front courtyard. It's an old ladder painted blue and filled with pots of succulents. I got the idea from a Sunset book and thought it would be perfect for our courtyard, especially as we had this old rickety wooden ladder. With a coat of outdoor blue paint, it makes a stylish plant holder.
The purse has a gathered pocket for sunglasses on one side, and I added a split pocket on the back, for cell phone, keys, etc. You won't believe this next part. I discovered a silk shift in my closet the same dark red as the embroidery, bought several years ago and never worn. I'm visiting Mom tomorrow, so this will be perfect! Now if I could find something else to finish by the end of the month, that would make three finishes - I don't think I've ever had that many in one month.
