I'm not one to make something for someone when they say they want any black wool purse, do whatever, or have someone say will you make this quilt for me, show me a picture and inside I'm saying "are you serious" and by when. That was last year and now I have completed my one and only obligation and if she likes it, okay, if not, will sell it else where, don't make me explain about the zippers. (Don't look at the cat hairs either) I ended up adding more thread embellishment with a buttonhole stitch on top of the trim and the strap to give the black some contrast and just a meanering straight, overall stitch to the purse, all with wool thread.
Thank you for the comments, a sadness swept over me yesterday, watching the birds from the door and I saw a Lazuli Bunting for the first time this spring, and I whispered, Jim, we have a Lazuli Bunting, a slip of the tongue, something I would have said to him many times over, and such a small thing to bring such sadness.
Well, blogger won't let me upload the front with the zippers, so just picture zippers.
