The last finish in 2013. A little owl purse. It is from Lynette Andersons book Stitch it for spring. I got the book from Hanne for Christmas and she had also traced the little cute owl stitchery for me.
Love Lynette’s books and I am so happy she now have the actual size of the stitcheries in these books. Then we can start stitching right away and do not have to enlarge the patterns. Sewing the zipper in this little purse late night and I sewed it in too tight. But I like the way it turned out so I will keep it this way.
And I have already started to use it. I will keep my new sewing light in this little purse. The light was a gift to myself from myself this Christmas. I hang it around my neck and it is a very good light that shines down on my sewing or my book. Easy to bring along, and very useful because you never know when you get some time to sew, and at my age I need good sewing/reading light. I bought the necklight at Merethe’s shop.
I wish all my friends
a Happy New Year
and I look forward
to spend it with you in 2014.
Saying for today:
