Spring in January

Yep, no snow yet.  Temperatures are a bit colder but hey, who am I to complain.  I much prefer this to icy roads and snow.

I put on my thinking cap this week and might have some changes for 2007.  Usually, I am not selling my work but for a few pieces at are comissionned.  I have a hard time to let go the work I love and well, I love most everything I do.  In 2007, I will add stuff for sale in my photo album here and might even create a web site especially for selling my creations: beads, purses, felting...a bit of everything.  I am taking my time to develop something interesting but already added a few pieces for sale in my album.  Please take a look and let me know if there is something special you would like. I am open to suggestions.

Beside that, I love swaps.  I am always ready to swap fabrics, yarn, bits and pieces for crazy quilting... a bit of everything in fact so I intend to add an album with what I have to swap.  To begin with, I enrolled in two blog-world swaps: 

SwapAndSwap   and 351422363_fa8d1e702c_o

The SwapAndSwap is a totebag swap and the Swap Créatif is a container-étui-bag swap with it's material. 

Also, I signed up for 12 Accessoires, a work-along for one different accessory a month that can be sewn, knitted, crochet or else.  It's bilingual  and promise to be motivating and inspiring.

I completed the thumb on my Fetching and wore them. I sure will use that pattern again as it's fast and easy but will add a pattern at the bottom and a pattern at the top as I find them too short.

Like Purse-Ho I have a passion for purses and can't resist a leather purse at a good price.  While shopping for a red purse to replace a broken one, I couldn't help but get this superb italian buttery-soft leather purse with it's dust bag that was at 75% of it's price.  After all, I had no blue purse yet.  Of course, I also got the red purse I was looking for.

Have a good week
