A Day at the Races

Was had by this little Kiss Purse.
 I made it to accompany a fabulous outfit made by Zanet Couture and am looking forward to seeing photos of the whole ensemble's appearance atthe Melbourne Cup Fashion on the Field.  The dress was a vision of 1950's-inspired glamour!

I went NOWHERE today, except from home to work and back again, despite having two free passes to the Melbourne Cup.


I'm in the middle of a huge revamp of pattern covers and instructions.  All other activity (except the occasional theraputic knitting of a Persian cat and a sock) has been put on hold. 

I shall hopefully have something to blog (or even perhaps a tweet to Twitter or an update to Facebook) at some point soon.

Right now... nothin' but a big can of worms.

That's a very nice purse Nikki. I'm especially enjoying the fine finish ( as usual) which shows clearly in the stitching. I went nowhere today. I had a frustrating day in my workroom, should have taken the invite to a race day work do at my husbands work ( best laid plans of mice and men) hmhm

Beautiful!! So simple and so well made.

I still haven't managed to make a Kiss purse successfully (I got into all sorts of problems with my interfacings not sticking properly and then slipping around .. I binned the resulting mess!). Must put that back on my project list to try again once I've finished making Christmas presents!

Talking of which ....

That Kiss Purse is absolutely stunning! It looks like yours stays upright by itself, whereas mine rolls over on it's side if I set it down... ???

You'll get a Cup, at the very least, when you reach the finish line ;-)

Remember the Eating, Sleeping and BREATHING part of things too.
