Whimsey Black Cat

January 17, 2014

 Well, I'm still not finished my hooked purse 
but I'm almost there!
I spent lots of time reading over the directions,
 trying to understand what it is I'm suppose to do!! 
Most of the confusion was how to sew the lining
but I think I finally got it all figured out 
and hope to put it all together soon.

When I feel like doing something more relaxing 
I'll go to my hooking, crocheting or hand-stitching.
 I recently finished stitching this whimsey black cat.
I think this frame will work great.
It's a gift for my sons girlfriend.
 They have the sweetest little black cat so I thought 
she would enjoy having it.

Hope you all have a warm and cozy weekend!

Hooked Purse

January 6, 2014

I have decided that I would start the year off 
trying to be more organized and finish up projects 
that have been set aside for much to long.
This hooked piece will become a purse once 
I figure out how to assemble it!! 
The fabric on the left will be the lining,
 I purchased the straps with the pattern 
and will choose a heavy brownish wool 
for the bottom of the bag.
You can find this pattern at

 Wish me luck!!!!!

Enjoy the day!
