I still have to put in the blue Velvet and blue Satin lining and put the decoration on the flap. I have this lovely white and black Jade carving that really is very special. But I wanted to show that I have been working. Working and listening to books on tape.

Well, yesterday, my trusty iron said that it couldn't go any further down the road. And I had to get on my horse and look for another. I was surprise to see how large the irons have gotten. I don't know if that makes them better or not but I will find out.
New is not always better!!!!!!

I guess I feel that I need a little luck. And then all the little things started to come together pushing me into today. Last night I dreamt I was watching a lady put St Patrick's Day cards into her shop. I told her how my birthday was on the 17th (June), I was Irish, I was named after my uncle Patrick and how my birth announcements were especially printed with a shamrock. When I woke up and was dressing, I reached for my favorite green shirt and I remembered my dream and then remembered that today is the 17th. How the mind works...... But I still need the "Luck of the Irish", so here is my little man.

Just last weekend I understood how I was going to correct it. I put a flex opening in the top. It gathered the top nicely and it all came together. Now, for me it works!
This is grey felt with white felt on the inside and with red trim. The straps are satin that I fringed.

This about the size of the worm that invaded my computer yesterday. Not very big but VERY invasive. I received an email from someone that I had "red flags" about, but since I wanted to have good relations with, I went ahead and opened the email.
Guess what? When you get "red flags", they usually are correct. This little worm took over my computer. I completely lost control. I couldn't open the Internet, I couldn't open my word processor, and I couldn't even play a solitaire game.
Fortunately, I have Norton Symantec. I called and for a "certain" amount of money, they remotely cleaned cleaned off all the porn sites that were placed on my computer, took out all the "cookies" and supposedly made it run faster.
I am now up and running and maybe a little wiser!

I do enjoy the creativity of the posters from this era. They seem so vivacious and fun.
I received this postcard from a customer that had bought a sound system from me. She is a singing teacher that had over used her voice and needed relief. We were able to help her and she sent this card to me as thanks.
I kept the card because of the sentiment that she expressed but also because of the drawing on this side.

The "Reticule" is giving me a lot of pleasure and the "Ribbon" bag is still giving me minor upsets.

What is wonderful about these samples is that they are heavy duty fabrics and will take a lot of abuse. So, for making purses they are ideal. What fun!!!
