My husband works construction and when he got home the other day he had 2 large garbage bags 1/2 full of Lama with tons of vim and dust. Today i had to see how it would spin up so i went outdoors picked and shook some out washed and dried and here is what i got!
Had to share this pic with you all!!! Barbie needed new tennis shoes and she had left the box on the kitchen table and my silly 12 lb cat thinks she can fit in it lol.

As promised here is pic of the finished purse. At first i wanted to put the brass handles but they seemed to small and made the opening of the purse impossible so i ended up with the bamboo handles its lined with a black lining and behind the knitting is a sliver black swirled shiny fabric. Well what do you think comments please?
