Kickin' back, musing, observing, and gathering inspiration from the hills of East Tennessee.

My Mother's Purse
I finally got a purse completed that I was sewing for my mother. It is a pattern from www.creativethimble.com, and it is called the "as you like it" purse. You can make a different flap for each season or your mood - as you like it! I made her a Christmas flap and an everyday one. She had asked me to make her this purse (she saw mine and loved it), so it won't be a surprise, but I'm glad I got it done before Christmas. Oh, so much to do . . .
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
