I made more geese when I got home – nothing new to really show – trying to figure out how many more I will need at this point.
I can finally show the change purses I made the other day – they were all made for other people and I didn’t want to spoil any surprises.
First, for my cousin Frances who loves elephants, I had promised to make two more change purses exactly like the one I had made for her a couple of months ago. She belongs to an elephant collector’s club and a couple of the other collectors wanted them.
While I was resizing that picture in PhotoShop, Harry came running in – he looked at the screen and yelled “Cousin Frankie!” Every time he sees an elephant, he associates it with her – kids are so funny!
And then for my dear friend and college buddy Chrystal (The Hobby Horse), I made these-
I almost couldn’t part with the peacock feather one – it really is a gorgeous piece of material and thankfully I have enough left to make one for myself out of it. I made three because Chrystal has two lovely daughters and I figured she may want to share with them, but I told her she could keep all three for herself if she wanted. LOL! However it turns out she is a great mom and wound up giving the moon/stars to her older daughter and the cats to her younger daughter, while keeping the peacock one for herself. I’m so glad they all three liked what they got- I really lucked out with the fabric choices.
And that was it for today. Not much, but at least I feel like I got something accomplished!
