This easy-to-knit carryall with leather straps is made of hand-spun yarn.
I like how the purse plays up the rainbow palette of this beautiful hand dyed yarn.
Two purple needle-felted anemones are a finishing touch.
This flower comes in vibrant shades of white, pink, purple, magenta and burgundy, and although it is quite showy, it has no scent.
Felt flowers are very easy to make. I had fun making them and am planning on adding some more to my website.
Anemone, so well
Named of the wind, to which thou art all free.
The meaning for this flower in flower language is "expectation".
William Congreve: Uncertainty and expectation are the joys of life.

Happy birthday to all my friends born in the summer:-)
May all your dreams come true!
August is a wonderful month when the summer is almost over and the heat is usually mild, but not this year. I guess we are all hoping for the 'cooldown' these days.
I called the carryall I made last month a Late Summer Purse. It has all the summer colors but they are a little faded.
I thought that just a couple of bright blooms of anemone would add a blast of color to the purse.
Anemone, pronounced as 'a-NEM-o-nee'. The name is derived from the Greek word 'anemos' meaning 'wind'. In Roman times Pliny wrote that the anemone flower was opened by the wind. The flowers of the taller types are carried on long, wiry stems and nod gracefully in a breeze.

Claude M. Bristol: We usually get what we anticipate.
Brian Tracy: Your attitude is an expression of your values, beliefs and expectations.
The best things in life are unexpected - because there were no expectations.
Expect nothing and accept everything and you will never be disappointed.
There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.
