After the expo... line of belly dance purses... trying to sort it out!!!!




The packed out expo was CRAZY! I have so much stuff... from lots of fabric to Russian punch needle supplies to felting supplies... well I had the hand felting supplies... today I went to my wonderful Pfaff dealer... Sewing Machines Etc here in Knoxville and bought a felting machine. More about that later.
I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things!
I got home about 9:00pm Saturday night...


The Bald Man, who I missed horribly, was waiting at the door with these roses below and dinner. I had to hurry and eat, throw on a costume because I was booked to belly dance at a fairly big party at 10!!!
Sunday we were invited to Alexia's home, where she and her wonderful husband Stan made me and the Bald Man an amazing 5 course meal!!!! Complete with an Irtish coffee like I've never had before! I have to think of something cute to make Stan sometime because the effort he put into that meal was incredible.
Yesterday I tried to sort through all my expo stuff!
And I cut out some purses to sell... I'm trying to "develop" a line of belly dancer themed purses, totes and zills bags using my embroidery machine...
We'll see what happens... I just posted this "test" purse on bhuz to sale...
Its really cute , but it needs to be bigger.. I forgot to put the magnetic snap in too...and I think I might have used to much stabilizer... still very usable and pretty... just not the way I want it yet...
