Mostly a blog about my miniatures. I sometimes get sidetracked.

An Upgrade and an Oops!!!....
OK. I went into town this morning on errands and while I was wandering around K Mart, I found this purse on sale. It feels just like the softest of leather and I liked the style. Great color for winter.
It's kind of hard to think winter when it will be 107 today.(and tomorrow and the next day....)
The only thing wrong with it were the zipper pulls. They did not look like leather. Spoiled the whole look.
I went ahead and bought it anyway. I knew that I could take those off and put something else in their place.
When I was finished, I had something more to Tessie's liking.
I took some eye pins( jewelry pins with a loop at one end) and beads that I had lying around. I picked out three things to hang on the ends, from the loops and went to work.
When I was finished, there was a star with a face sculpted on it hanging from one, a piece of natural quartz crystal wrapped in silver hanging from another and a silver feather hanging from the third.
At no extra cost, I now have a purse that I am happy with...The only trouble is, Tessie took one look at it and said, "It looks like a witch's bag. I want one!".
Here we go again. I guess I will be making one like it for her sometime soon....Not for the next 24 hours though. I have to fix an OOPS!!!
I finished the weaving on the settee last night and then started on the chair....I should have waited until this morning.
For some reason, I just whizzed merrily along and when I looked at it this morning....It didn't match at all!!! Personally I think that Tessie had something to do with it. Maybe she zapped it when I wasn't looking. Yeah. That's a good story...I like that one.
Anyway, I have to rip out most of the top and do it again....There will have to be a little extra time allowed for growling and saying bad words as I go...
Please bear with me. The tearing out takes longer than the weaving....I greatly dislike that part.
