Back to business
I am back from vacation in Connecticut! We had a wonderful trip and the weather was fantastic. We went to the Big E(xposition), Vermont country Store, Basketville, Yankee Candle, Whatley, Newport, Waterbury, Foxwoods Casino and lots of other fun stuff. Coming back to reality like laundry, grocery shopping and pulling weeds! LOL And, my stitching. I finished filling in the bottom leaf with the blend of silver cord. It is ready to do the twist and couch the cord around the outside. I also did some stitching in the car. This is one of the Colonial Needle purses and I bought the initial letter P canvas by Lee and stitched it in the car traveling.
To do the insert was very easy when I got home. I trimmed the canvas and removed the protective paper and gently lifted the edges and placed the piece on the sticky surface. It said to glue the edge but I used double sided sticky tape as it was less messy. I am impressed with the quality of this bag. It has a large zipper pocket on one side and two smaller pouches on the other.....think cell phone and pen holder.
