My True North, a Collection

A romantic connection with winter and fiber permeates my spirit. The sensibility for me living in the Northwest is embodied in this collection.

A Flowered Spring - Handbags

The Spring ready-to-wear runway shows features a lot of flowered prints, so expect to see some pretty dresses coming to a department store near you. As a transition from the doldrums of winter weather, what could be a better choice to put a little pop in your wardrobe than a flowered bag?

Let these cool finds from featured Etsy artists get you in the mood for a flowery season to come. This first one is in emerald, Pantone's color of the year for 2013.

If you are still in the thick of winter and there is no end in sight, this brown knitted and felted bag with teal, aqua and orange felted flowers might perk up your spirits:

On the other extreme, perhaps it's getting pretty warm where you reside. You light like this pretty cable purse with clip-on fabric roses--a great idea for a customizable bag:

The photo-styling on this next bag, with its out-of-focus background, is a cool way to showcase this little yellow-green bag of bright and cheerful felted flowers:

Do you have a flowered bag in your wardrobe?

Star Lattice Stitch on the Needles

Yesterday it was way too sunny and nice to knit, but today I am back at it. On the needles is a star lattice pattern for a warm winter scarf.

It's eight inches wide and will be at least six feet long.
