Talk about a blast from the past! Thanks for sharing.


Your purse is beautiful! And wow - those kitsch pictures are truly something else!


I love how that purse looks! Too bad it's so heavy... otherwise it would be fun to make a sweater with that motif and yarn.

Clackers! I had those!!!


Cool book!

From yesterday: I absolutely love aqua and lime together! As a total clothes horse, I often remember clothes and color combinations that I like from tv shows, magazines etc. Here's the reference: SG-1, "Wormhole Extreme" - Samantha Carter.

The purse is tres cool! I'm sorry to hear the yarn sheds so much - the colors are really pretty but I don't think I'd want to work with it.

Ah, Kitsch - it always makes me smile.

A Samantha Carter reference! And Wormhole X-Treme to boot. My heart runneth over.

Cute purse! Too bad it's heavy. I've had to ditch my leather purses because of the weight.

A Santa toilet seat cover? Ye gads & little fishies.


I really like the way that bag turned out! I don't think I have the patience for all those motifs though! very cool! :)

The purse looks fantastic. OMG those grapes. I loved those. hhhmmmmm, I can make them you say? I need that book. I'll have grapes everywhere!


The purse looks great!


I also loved those grapes. The purse is great to me. I think if I make one, I will do something different for the strap, like a leather belt. I think that might take the weight of the bag differently.


The jewel tone purse is cute. I remember a lot of those kitschy crafts, though I don't think my mom allowed them in our house! Clackers - I'd forgotten about them. It's a wonder we all survived childhood.


oh holy moly - you are certainly walking through my past too! I had a pair of purple click-clacks, that's what we called them and I remember they had silver sparklies in them and they looked like giant disco marbles. Oh how many times, i've asked my dad when I've been back home to climb into the attic and find those - probably next to my Crissy and Velvet dolls! I loved them!!! Great purse - I bought that issue and I LOVE IT! I've got to try that yarn - thanks for the closeup!


Nice bag!! I totally love the colors--great job!!!! I'm really impressed.


Thanks for the compliments on my purse, everyone! I appreciate it. :)

Carmen - Mine had sparklies too! LOL

Andrea - Did you ever hit yourself in the head with yours? I remember bruising my wrist with those clackers too.

Kristen - I'm kinda glad, now, that Mom was a little kitschy - it certainly brings back fond memories. Kind of a warm, fuzzy feeling when I see the pics today. :)

Wendy - I think a belt would be a great idea. This strap curls in a bit too much. I may end up lining it to give it stability.

Amy - I know, I know - I'm tempted to run out, get the stuff, and make...well...bunches! hehe

Carrie - just try sitting on a sequined Santa after a shower and It's a new experience in Christmas cheer!

Wormhole X-treme - one of my favs!!!

Unfortunately, I pulled out the yarn yesterday and realized it wouldn't work for the pattern without a massive re-write. And I'm SICK of re-writing! So I'm on to Plan B. Details to follow....


I can't remember hitting my head... but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. ;)
