Squirrel Love and Completion

Pieces for the squirrel bag are coming together: on the backside of the piece, in lieu of the words I often tool, I am giving this particular bag an extra pocket, inspired by the very animal she features - where else will you stash your acorns?
Or your cell phone and keys: anything you may need to reach for quickly...

Any way you fill it, it's a dandy little pocket, and it'll be closed with a swing clasp, just like the front of the purse for ease of entry.

By the way, the vibrant blue in the background? That's the rich, sumptuous suede that will line the whole bag, back pouch included!!! It's like a Caribbean vacation every time you reach for the lip gloss!!

Mark and Markette :)

I also wanted to show you the poppy corsage cuff, which has been gobbled up already by a fearless reader who knew it was hers when she saw it!

It is very fancy and quite frankly, a stunner.

I am off to lapidary workshop this evening with Stacey - I may even have a new stone to set tomorrow - Oooooooh!

"Muskrat Susie, Muskrat Sam
Do the jitterbug out in muskrat land
And they shimmy
And Sammy's so skinny

And they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed
Singin' and jingin' the jango
Floatin' like the heavens above
It looks like muskrat love

Nibbling on bacon, chewin' on cheese
Sammy says to Susie "Honey, would you please be my missus?"
And she say yes
With her kisses"

Okay I'll stop now.
I can't wait to see it finished!

I knew the poppy cuff would turn out amazing. The black seeds surrounding the center are so sleek and shiny, they remind me of caviar.
