Alchemy goes Gold!

So I'm going to give Congo life a shot. I was asked to join Alchemy a Congo on Hyena Cart. My first stocking will be over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. I will be stocking items from Thursday through Monday the 30th. Alchemy's theme for the stocking event is "Gold".

I'm offering this great purse as a FFS drawing. It is a new design that I've been working on for a while.

It is not perfect....a couple little sewing errors - but it is definately usable!

It measures about 8.5" x 8.5" and has a zip closure with a flap over that. There is small pocket with a zipper closure on the interior of the purse. The strap is detachable and adjustable.

A few other offerings through the weekend include a knitting project bag, a purse and a couple of clutches.

knitting, knitting, knitting

I just spent part of the weekend taking photos of my yarn stash and uploading to Ravelry.

I think I only got halfway through....yup I still have more in the closet to get photographed and details loaded!

The big push is that I have 6 custom hats to knit in the next few months! I needed to find out what I have and which colors/weights I can use for the Hudson Hats(tm).

This is a custom Hudson Hat(tm) that I just finished!

New Purse

This was fun. I decided to design a new purse for the Spring. I wanted something small and "cute" - so I came up with this little envelope type purse. The strap is slightly padded and hangs down approximately 15" from your shoulder. The bag itself, is 10" wide and 6" tall. It is 2" deep at the bottom but with it snapped it is probably closer to 1" deep at the top. One snap closure and a interior pocket across the back of the purse are the other details.

It makes a nice little purse to throw your wallet in and carry around for a day of shopping! In different fabrics or colors it would make a nice little evening purse. I think this one could be pretty versatile!!
