Playing dress-up

The purse I blog-stitched sometime back has arrived from the finisher!  Needle Nicely in Vero Beach. Florida (www.needlenicely.com), worked its magic to create a soft shoulder bag for me to wear to some September weddings.  The purse is pictured here against the dress it will accessorize.

The design was adapted from one by needlepoint icon Maggie Lane and stitched in basketweave with Vineyard Silk Classic and Kreinik metallic threads.  The purse is lined in blue with a hidden snap closure.

I'm so thrilled with the way it turned out!
