Breast Cancer Awareness Purse Update

As promised, I have an update for you on my Breast Cancer Charity Purse:

Breast Cancer Awareness Purse

Many of my readers have told me that they don't care for the color pink but I must tell you, it's one of my favorite colors!

Anyway, I'm still working on the seams and having a great time doing it!

The lace with the velvet ribbon in the center is a vintage piece. It was in a bag of old lace that I bought in Dubuque Iowa the very first time that Scott and I went to Galena. This charity purse has been in the back of my mind for awhile so I was saving that trim specifically for this project.

The lace to the right of the pink ribbon was a gift to me from Susan N. It's another piece that I've been saving for something special.

I haven't decided yet on what to do to the left of the vintage trim so later today, I'll probably start on some beading.

I guess that's all I have for today. I need to get going on my design-work for the day. The sooner I get that done, the sooner I can stitch on this!

I love what you've done on this. It's very feminine, very pretty, and very you. Wait until you see what's happening to the pink block you sent me! It should be home soon, and I'll get a complete block picture of it for you.

I really like the antique lace, and the rose ribbon you put on top of the lace I sent. Very lovely block, all the way around.

And what exactly is that stitch all the way over on the top right, the one with the purple x embellishers?

I never heard of any female who does not like the colour Pink! I thought all us girls had a bit of Pink in us somewhere! Anyway, I love this project; that pink ribbon symbol must be universal. I had assumed it was just Australia who used it for Breast Cancer fund raising.
