The purse.

I mentioned a while ago that my mom made me a spectacular birthday present. I was finally able to get a decent photo of it.

The flower design is needle felted onto the wool. If you don't know what needle felting is, Betz White has a nice tutorial on her site.

My mom said she finished needle felting the design and then thought that it needed a little something else. That's when she decided to add some bead embroidery to the center of the flower and the leaves.

I'm often stopped by people wanting to know where I got it. It's fun to say, "My mom made it! Can you believe it?!"

Thanks again, Mom! :)

In other news, the surgery has finally been scheduled for next Friday, November 9. I'm glad to have it scheduled so I can get it over with. Thanks again for all your well wishes - you guys are the best!

This weekend I think we are going to take N. to see Bee Movie. I'll probably be making some soups and things to have on hand for when I'm recovering from the surgery. A nice, low-key weekend.

Hope yours is enjoyable as well! See you next week.

Wow, that bag is gorgeous. Tell your mom she should open an Etsy shop, lol. Wait, does she have one already?

Wishing you luck & a quick recovery next week.
