Emily's New Purse!!!

Hey Ya'll,

Just a quick post to say that I finally finished my first Crocheted purse!!  I made it for my Granddaughter Emily.  It is a Puppy but I made it in her favorite colors of Pink and Purple!!  I can't wait to give it to her, I just hope that she likes it.  What do you think?  This is the first animal I have attempted so far!




























By the way Ya'll, how do you get your cute signatures on your blogs?  I cheated and did it the hard way, like signing a piece of paper, taking a photo of it, then uploading it into the blog, but there just HAS to be an easier way!!!!

Aloha My Friends  :)

Hi Debi! I wanted to answer your question about my parents boat. They sold our childhood house about 8-9 years ago. Their dream was to live on a boat on the river. So this is their 3rd live aboard boat, and also their biggest. It is 18 wide and 72 long. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a bathtub in one, etc. They love love love it.

I think they, you, us, can get used to living almost anywhere! Their boat before this one was a cruiser, bc they wanted to cross the Gulf and you cant do that in a houseboat. It was 42 feet long but not made for LIVING. It was too small for that and that took a lot of creative storage and cooking, etc.

But they love their houseboat and their life on it. I think that you and Hubs will find an adventure and hopefully something great will come out of this financial "ungreatness".

Your granddaughter will love it. Such a nice grandma for doing this. My sister makes all sorts of stuff for her two grandkids. I'm not quite so handy.

That purse is absolutely adorable. I love it!

If you click on the signature in my blog, it will take you to the website where I created it. Then there is a wizard to walk you through creating your own - and there are a zillion options to look at.

Thank you everyone!!

Amy, thanks for the info about your parents Houseboat. It looks fantastic and we had considered one too, but decided it was not an option as we need to be able to travel to whatever State that Walt gets work in. Their last boat will be about 1-5 feet longer than what we end up with!! So you know what we can expect!! But it WILL be an adventure for sure!

LD Swims, thanks for the info on the signature! I will definitely check it out today and see if I can figure it out!!

That purse is the cutest thing ever! I used to know a lady at my work that does that and sales them. I used to love to crochet and knit. How fun! I think she will love it. Good Job!

Your purse is so cute. I enjoy crocheting as well. I am not good at following patterns...I just like doing my own thing. My grandmother taught me how many years ago, though I didn't really get into it until after I lost her. Guess I wanted to carry that on for her.
Your granddaughter will love it!

Thanks Marcia!! I took a couple of courses about 32 yrs ago, one in basic crochet and the other in intermediate, so I could learn some more advanced stitches. I only got back into crocheting last year though and loved it.
