Way back in the early Spring when I went to Asilomar, I purchased a wacky, happy handbag from one of the artists' in residence at Asilomar. If you don't remember how that one looked, check it out here.
I could have sold that handbag a hundred times since then, and every time I see my Doc, she comments on how I always find the neatest things on my trips. She really, really, really liked my handbag this year, too. I got to thinking about how much she's helped me emotionally as well as physically over the years, and I thought getting her one of these purses would be a nice thank you.
I ordered two of them, and this is the one I gave her today. Her squeals and smiles told me how me she liked it (right Dr. S?) BUT, she insisted on paying me for it. Oh well.....
I asked Pat Busby (the designer)for a handbag to carry this fall, and while I don't think I would ever have asked her to make THIS bag, I have fallen in love with it!
I can hardly wait to start carrying it!
I have Pat's web address in the car, because I am trying to promote several of her patterns to local quilt shops, so I'll post her information in the next post. Watch this space!
