New Purses

I really love this new dye pattern....I'm seeing it on one whole collection...purses, scarves, jackets...I so want to make the jacket!  I'll be selling these all summer at the studio, and this winter at the shows....

 These are all made with Blue Faced Leicester rovings...all in white then dyed after....Beautiful leather straps added. It was a challenge to figure out the best way to sew in the zippers, other than by hand. Each clutch has a little pocket inside for cell phones or individual necessities....Just the right size. I want one....


  Here they are shown in my display for the Salt Spring Market....the first weekend was last week...and it is happening again tomorrow...but I've already decided not to go...and will spend some time with my friend, Amy Melious, being inspired by her loveliness...and then take the boisterous boys to the beach and enjoy the promised sunny day instead....That feels right! I received some fabulous news today, that I can't quite share...but allows me to feel justified in taking a day partially off for pure pleasure! I'll be making up some working time in the early mornings and evenings....

  And one more bag...again made with the BFL....


 I'll be starting on the four fibres bags tonight...
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Warm wishes,
Fiona
