Silhouette Lady Purse & More

It's been raining here non-stop for days! I expect to see Noah go by any minute now! Although I would love some sunshine, rainy days are perfect stitching days!

I worked on this for hours yesterday:

Silhouette Lady Purse

I have some special things that were sent to me by some of my readers and I've been saving them for something special. The little Swarovski crystal links on the Buttonhole Wheels by the image were a gift to me from Bennie. I have some other things pulled to and will give credit to the sender once I add them.

I also wanted to share a Comfort Doll that my mom made to send to Pat:

Moms Comfort Doll

The bonnet lady is from mom's collection of vintage iron-on transfers. She crayon tinted her, embroidered the flowers with varigated perle cotton and added some beads. This is just too cute!

Last but not least, I know you've seen photos of my cats before but I just had to share this picture of my Simba:

They sure do know how to make themselves comfy-cozy! I want to be a cat in my next life and live with someone like me!

Simba looks settled. Who can blame her if it's raiing so much.
I love your Mums doll, it's pretty.
The red purse is looking good too.

I love the comfort doll. I never even thought of doing something like that - just got stuck on the idea of dolls, and I can't do a decent doll! Thanks, Mom!

I hope you aren't getting floods. I saw the Ohio pictures and it looks terrible over there. I love to stitch on rainy or cloudy and cold days, too.
