Purses and Penny Rugs, Steamy Rain

1. Tess and I make a much anticipated trip top the fabric store. The pattern books brim with possibilities and I can barely contain myself from wanting to make everything. Tess chooses two complimentary fabrics that are perfect for her project. She has a keen eye for color and design and I love what she puts together.

2. I have a project too! I've had the pattern for years and the wool arrived in the mail via ebay today. It's restful hand work to fit my summer mood, something I can stitch at my leisure.

3. The smell of summer rain when it first falls on the hot macadam.


  1. and love, love, love the fabric choices!

  2. I'll bet both projects will be beautiful.
