Seems like I've been surrounded by creamy-colored items lately.
I have never been much for shopping, if you don't include fabric, yarn and the like, and certainly never been much for shopping online, but...........one day not long ago I was noodling around on here and drifted over to Etsy. One thing led to another and I placed, ummm, a couple orders.
The first treasure I found was this vintage Lou Taylor clutch with the tag still on. It's just lovely. Do any of you remember Lou Taylor bags? Each one came with a mirror in it. They were popular in the 70's and I think early 80's. Really nice quality.
The second find on Etsy was this little handmade purse. And when I say handmade, I mean she stitched everything by hand. It's just the sweetest thing.....also excellent quality.
A friend at work is a grandma for the first time.....it's a girl! I found the pattern in this book. I used yarn and buttons from the stash.
This was an easy pattern that went quickly. There are several other items in the book I think I'll try. I still haven't sewn the tops I cut out.....but I'm making progress in the sewing room. Do you ever look back on craft projects you got a long time ago and realize that those things don't interest you at all today? Anything that I come across that I know doesn't appeal to me anymore is going out. Sometimes it's hard to "make the break," but the more I do the better it feels.
Hope you have a great week :)
