This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Making a Spring Purse.....
This is a simple little Spring or summer purse that I made. No pattern needed. Its not too big so not intended for carrying everything we own. Its light and easy. I am making one for my Granddaughter Reina who wants one and when done I will post it on here. I am going to make several and have fun with the fabric and decorations. It a good way to use up all those Fat Quarters that I have collected. I intend to use some patterns as well and make other bags. I just wanted to try this first.
I pretty much made this up as I went along, so should do better next time. I did French seams so that they are stronger. I also put the handles on and then stitched the fabric across them as a contrast that also strengthened the handles. I was quite happy with how it worked out. Next one I will put a pocket inside I think and maybe make it a bit bigger. Although this one is really the ideal size especially if it had compartments.
