PURSE AND POTS
Sounds like a funny title but it is what it is. I am making a bag as a donation for our Questers auction in Nov. I made a beaded cq one a few years ago and apparently it was a hit. I am never at the auction now as it is held an evening in Nov. when we are gone and the husbands are invited. One reason is they will bid more if they think it is something their wife wants. Method in our madness. I have to find a nice lining for this if I can't I have black dupioni silk I can use. I am also looking for a longer black fringe to go under the cream lace. I am not going to gussy it up too much as some would not like that. I will show you this again when I finally finish. What do you think about putting the doily on the back? Can't quite decide even though it is a particularly pretty one.
The pot part are two "down under" pots from Australia. I found the first clay one quite a few years ago and the blue one just this year. Brand new with a ticket still on it and I wonder if the person did not know what to do with it. You turn them upside down and fill with potting soil. Then you plant the impatiences or small begonias and let them sit for about a week or so until they have a chance to root in the soil. Then turn them over and water from the top and the flowers bloom from the bottom. I think they are nice to have something a little different.
