Half way done!

Half way done! I used a wool blend for the lining. The handles and lining have been sewn in. Now I just need to sew up the sides - with a gusset bottom. I'm looking forward to using this as a fun fall bag! Posted by Picasa

Flower Handbag

I needed a colorful break from working on my black, gray, white, and charcoal Johnny Cash #1 rug . This is going to be a handbag. The narrow ends will be the top opening. I have some nice wood U-shaped handles to add. I'll post another photo as it's sewn.

Oak and Acorn Stool

Here's a hand hooked stool I recently finished. The wools are hand dyed and mill dyed. The design is adapted from a Medieval English pavement tile. I originally was going to use the red for the background , but I'm glad I decided on the gold instead. And, in fact, the original tiles were produced in gold or black.

Postcard from Waterloo

Here it is, my first blog entry. The name of my blog is in memory of my father, Harry, who passed away on May 26, 2005. He, along with my mother, Anita, grew up in Waterloo, Illinois. "Postcard from Waterloo" is also a great Tom Verlaine tune.

"Now, we must say adieu
I'll send a postcard from Waterloo
You always said that I'd really like the view."
