Purse Progress Report

This was probably one of the most relaxing weekends in recent memory. Not a lot of company (very unusual) so I had time to hook and putter around the house. It was a nice end to my week of vacation. Hopefully it energized me enough for the week ahead. Tomorrow is one of those long days with a meeting at the end of it. On the 3rd Monday of the month my work day typically ends around 8:30 or 9pm.
I finished one side of my Bullseye Purse and got a start on side 2. I'm quite happy with it so far.
And as an added bonus, I think I know what I might do with it when its finished.

My mother's oldest friend was over Friday to pick her up for a little outing. They go out once a week for an ice cream sundae. Of all the things my Mom has forgotten - she still remembers ice cream. She is almost single-minded in its regard! Alice noticed the purse on the frame and RAVED about it. She was the recipient of one of my first rugs. So...........the little light came on in my head - Christmas present!

I guess now I will have to be extra careful with the finishing job!



  1. Very Very Nice, if you don't want it all have it. I really do love the colors that you used and how they compliment each other. I will show you my progress tonight, I put a little ribbon in it to jazzy it up. I dye some wool too, bright bright colors you'll love them.

  2. I've been wanting to get one of those purse patterns too! They look fun to hook, just wondering how difficult they are to put together after the hooking? Nice colors you've chosen. Cathy

  3. Your purse is lovely. When you get to it, please share with us the putting it together part. I also want to try one, but I'm not sure I could get it all to go together and have it come out looking purse-like.

  4. Debra and Cathy,
    I will try to photo document the construction process. The instruction sheet and tips from Jennifer at Fish Eye Rugs is very helpful. But actually doing it......hmmmmm. But I'm hopeful!
