'tis the season

oh goodness, i tried.

oh goodness, i tried.

oh goodness, i tried.

oh goodness, i tried.

oh goodness, i tried.

i sewed and sewed and sewed and then i sewed a little more. and the result is a stack of zipper purses taller than me. nearly two hanks-worth! unfortunately today is grey and soggy once again here in philadelphia, so i will have to hold off for some sunshine, or at least a raindrops-free kind of day to individually photograph them. they should be in the shop in the next day or two. i will post a more specific time once i have photos together.

i had a seemingly brilliant idea, where i would stack all of said zipper purses in a neat stack and stand next to them. it was just me and the pets this morning, so i set up my nifty new tripod and set to work. stack, collapse, stack, collapse, stack, collapse. and so it went. luckily, there is no soundtrack to these photos, because just about every curse word i know freely flowed from my mouth. i do not have a remote for my camera, so i set the timer to ten seconds, then tried to jump up on the table next to the stack without them toppling over. apparently i am about as graceful as a three-legged horse, so none of this worked out as planned and i have are outtakes!

oh, goodness. i tried.

i also have some new shoulder bags in the works, and will post more info on those soon as well.

hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving and a well-spent weekend.

oh, and you can't really see it in the smaller versions of the photos, but my necklace is from dores and it is my new favorite thing.
