PURSE!!!

I finished off the large purse from Anni Downs new book yesterday...another lovely project from her book. It was really hard to get a good picture of the purse, as the fabric looks kinda grey in pic...but is actually more green. I will make a handle for it eventually, but still tossing up whether to get a chain, or make a fabric strap, either way I have to wait until I get to town to buy what I need to do it.

It has got quite a bit of room inside...and as you can see, quite a bit bigger than the other purse from the book!


I had forgotten all about this Protea...this is the first bud open for the year. Unsure of this ones name(edit Pink Mink)...still checking on my other Protea 'Cream Mink'...which is like this one, but yellow with black tips.

I hope you are having a great week

Your protea has the most wonderful colour in it.
