In the studio - silky fluffy shawl

Shawl, silk, rayon, nylon, polyester, stockinette and reverse stockinette stitches, size 8 aluminum cable needle.

I pulled this out of the "in progress" bin and am about to take it off the needles. After doing quite a bit a work in fine guage I'm having fun ripping through several large guage projects like this.

In the studio - new embroidered purse

This was begun months ago, but being encouraged by the previous purse, I have lunged forward.

Embroidered purse

Purse, cotton, linen and silk fabric, cotton thread, beads

This has been pure joy to work. I've given vent to all my desires for gaudy, thick texture and overdone pattern. Woo hoo!

The front pocket needs embellishment and my most recent idea is couching a leaf with bright spring greens. The fastener bead is handmade by a friend who has an Etsy shop: ginkodesigns - well worth a visit!
