My “Tropical Bag” is in the latest Needlepoint Now magazine – here’s my photo – the photo in the magazine is lots better! There’s also a great star design from Michael Boren and Carole Lake.
The bag is from Stirling and I used Threadworx Overdyed Vineyard Silk (you know I love it!). I also used one of their Overdyed Merino Wools and Overdyed Kreinik Braid (both the color called “Bradley’s Balloons” – it ties all the silk colors together!). It was a fun and quick piece to stitch and the perfect summer purse!
I’m on a mission to get the rest of my shop inventory gone. I want to park in my garage again and get rid of my storage unit. I’ll be adding stuff to the “Close-Out” section of my website over the next few weeks. First up is the painted needlepoint canvases. I’ve got a few more to photograph but this is the bulk of them.
I *love* Bradley's Balloons on general principles and have several skeins – now I know what to do with it!
