a * finished* sweet spring purse

howdy friends.

 

Today I have another finished project to share with you!  A few years ago, I was visiting my mom and we visited a yarn shop adventures in knitting and I saw this cute little pattern that I knew I wanted to make

Of course, life was crazy at the time, so I bought IT put away with other patterns for a time when life would be more conducive to creating.

whelp, when I found myself couch-bound post- surgery, I made the executive decision ( cause I’m all important and stuff 😉  ) that it was time to make it.

 

Last week, I finished!

I’m in LOVE with this little bag!
made the handle long enough so that it can go cross-body  ( for those all- important shopping trips)  It’s big enough to hold my phone, keys, lip gloss ( really all- important) and a credit card !

 

And I am super pleased with my choice of liners

My friend, Jackie, over at As My camera Sees it , posted a fitness- photo challenge today. It s a 12 week fitness challenge that will be documented weekly through photos!

Since I live in such a beautiful area that is unbelievably outdoor- friendly… I’m busy on thinking what my personal challenge will be.

announcement will be this coming Monday!

 

Something tells me it will have to do with two wheels 😉

 

In the meantime, I’ll leave you with n up close shot of my new treasure

  3. This purse is so cute. It was fun watching you make it and even more fun to see the finished product.

    Thanks for sharing the link to my Fitness-Photo Challenge. Wouldn’t it be fun if we could get the Knit Wits to join us? I can’t wait to see what your personal challenge will be. Maybe the Venus de Miles in August? 🙂 http://colorado.venusdemiles.com/

    It doesn’t hurt to think big! 🙂
