cut the tether

favorite birdies
{favorite birdies}

every
now and then
i make a purse
that i am
quite pleased with...
this is rare
because
i am pretty
obsessive compulsive
about things.

i am
quite fond
of this little
number
pink bird/yellow purse

and this
is my
favorite
underbug
purse/clutch
thus far...
orange tank/ grey clutch

they are
off
in a batch
to
last waltz.

off to last waltz

still working on
the
bugheart
architecto
purse...
but orders
have priority.

the other night
i declared
"no more purses"...
i feel
like i have
tied myself
to a tether.
we shall see.
lately i have
wanted
to crochet.
so damn
inspired
by
this
(link via camilla).
amazing.

also
the next wave
to come is
felt hexapods.
yes, that's
my next project.

but first,
i have to get
this
one
last purse
perfected.

also
i have been
neglecting
a thank you
to
the sweet
alyssa
who sent me
horace:

horace from moving garden

to help
me study
for my exam.
so so sweet.
thank you
so much alyssa!

you too
can have your
own horace
here.

cool horace details
{cool details}

tomorrow,
i think
i will go to
value village.
it's been
too long.

have a lovely
end of week!

Sad to see that amazing fleet of beautiful purses go to Last Waltz,but what a great looking place to display your wares.
That pink bird purse is divine, I can see why it is a favorite.
I can't wait to see your hexapods, very exciting!
Thanks so much for the horace shout-out and homey pics.
I didn't feel neglected at all:)!

Ooh, so many wonderful purses! I am loving the orange and grey combo, so striking and fresh. Looking forward to your new projects (love the bird).

I love the yellow purse! And the tank clutch too. I knit my husband a hat with a tank on it but now I think I need a tank something too.

Colored zippers---is that a new development? So clever!

ps - i see you listed munemitsu taguchi on your list of artists on the side there - we met him at the show on sunday. we loved him - he was so fun to talk to - and we loved his work, too. hoping to own some of his work one day.

The bird purse is indeed lovely! I love birds, and that's the perfect shade of yellow. I know I'd walk with a spring in my step if I carried a purse like that.

Can't wait to see the hexapods.
