Late Summer Purse

This easy-to-knit carryall with leather straps is made of hand-spun yarn.

with Felt  Flowers

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.

                                                    George MacDonald

The meaning for this flower in flower language is "expectation".

 

William Congreve: Uncertainty and expectation are the joys of life.

   Late Summer

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.

 

 

Late Summer Purse 

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.

 

 

 

 

 Anemones

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.

There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.
