I'm all tidy in the house and ready to make another glasses purse.
I've changed the shape of this one and have ideas to make it on an indian theme.
I have drawn out a paisley, after trying unsuccessfully to resize some on the net,  I was never good with this kind of thing, lol, and have made a start on some purple silk.
I like the idea of the colours, nice and bright, purple, reds, golds etc.

Here you can see my paper pattern and the test purse made from cotton, its a bit bigger than the others and I may or may not put a small tassel on the bottom.

Tomorrow our Grandson is coming down to stay with us for the weekend and the family are going out for a meal in the evening, its my daughter's 50th so special.
Hang on........can I really have a 50 year old daughter, lol

Enjoy the Easter holidays everyone and let's hope the weather holds out.
2 car boots this weekend, Sunday and Monday so hoping to get some more bargains.


  1. I like the shape of this one. Can't wait to see it finished.
    Happy birthday to your daughter, have a good time over the weekend and Happy Easter

  2. I look forward to seeing your purchases, and also to the finished purple case. Wishing you a wonderful Easter weekend!!!

  4. like all your work I am sure this is going to be a real beauty. Good bargain hunting, wish there were car boots around here. Happy Easter too, good to have the family there and a birthday to celebrate.

  5. Your glasses cases are so very beautiful and I like the idea of an Indian theme with bright colors. A tassel will be the perfect finish. :) I can imagine how you feel having a daughter my age. Ha! Several summers ago when I met my mom's neighbor who was 93 at the time, she kept telling stories of the past and talking about her kids. My mom finally said to me "you know, when she says "my kids" they are in their 60s and 70s). Actually, I didn't consider that. We are moms for life, and sometimes it feels like our kids are catching up with us in the age department because we surely can't be getting so much older. :) Have a good day!

  6. I love the idea of purples, reds, paisley, it's going to look fabulous. Happy Easter to you and your family.

  7. Hope you had a wonderful weekend with your family visiting.
    Anything good at the car boot sales?

    Take care!

  8. It's going to be fantastic. Happy Birthday to your daughter.

  9. I hope you and yours enjoyed a lovely Easter. I do love your fabric choices! Happy 50th to your daughter.
