Spring Has Sprung

Lately I've been taking a break from blogging and have finally decided to start up again. I've been motivated by the coming of Spring and decided that if I didn't do something else besides crocheting all day that I would eventually get burned out. The first sign of sring, of course, has been the warm weathere we've been having and Spring Break just around the corner. The other sign of Spring happened just this morning when my son came running in the house, screaming, "Look at the pool!!! Look at the pool!!!"

Our two little friends make another visit this year. I'm guessing they stopped by for a rest on their way to their summer home to start their family once again. I hope we'll get to see them again tomorrow, at least to stop by and say hi.

Spring also brought forth some inspiration through my purse designs as well. This purse had been a project I was doing for my mother. She wanted a black and white background with lots of flowers on the front. Ok, that's exactly what she got, but it wasn't quite what she saw in her head. I have learned since not to custom design purses for special orders. I'll sell it to someone who loves it and can't live without it. Actually, it might just be another purse for me.

The whole purse was felted. The flowers were of course felted seperate then later attached to the purse. I'm pretty happy with the turn out of this purse, it will definately catch lots of eyes.
