 as promised here is a batch of the stuff I've been working on.
this purse isn't quite done yet but it's off to a good start!

very butterfly-ee. it still needs something else but I can't see it right now so I'm going to put it aside for a bit and see if anything floats to the surface.
 I must say this box looks much better now that it's done. I wasn't pleased with it for the longest time!

there still may be a little too much going on but I can't see that it matters now.

I covered the inside with the pink spots in the top and a bright blue spot for the bottom.

my favorite parts are the cuttle fish and the seahorses on coral
 I love how this one turned out! the dragonfly is very dramatic don't you think?

the inside is covered with olive velvet and the same silk the dragonfly is on for the top.

 the covers on these next few are old samplers I had lying around.

the two orange pouches are big enough for eyeglasses.

the little ones are dream pouches.

you put something you want to dream about a picture or a wish or fragrant herbs and hang it from your bedpost or put it under your pillow at night.

you can also write down something you don't want to dream about on a piece of paper.

I haven't put handles on all of them yet.

what should I do to finish the eyeglass pouches?

I finally stopped fooling around with this purse.
I have decided to call it rapture. not for any religious feelings on my part it just seemed to want to go that way!
you can decide if it's religious or not
have you ever had a project dictate to you how it wanted to be made?
it's very unsettling if you ask me! mouthy projects and opinionated purses that's me! ha!
these will all be put in my etsy shop at some point in the next few days.
I have been working to finish and mount my may BJP project work on july's and start on another purse or two. buzzy, buzzy bee am I!
