Knitting stuff and going on and on.

The purse.

Here it is in all it's glory!!

Left Side.

Right side.

Both sides. Notice the jog on the side where the stripes don't quite meet up? Let that be a lesson to you to always make sure you have things sewn in right side up!

I don't have the buttons sewn in yet, (again with the lessons), make sure your blocking water is more lukewarm than bathtime warm! The buttons I bought for it no longer fit. I'm thinking I may get small buckles and sew them on the straps then put snaps underneath.

My Mom loves it and she's using it to carry her sheet music around in.

I was asked about Highlights for Hope. It was started by a woman from Thunder Bay, ON, Canada named Kelly Ruberto. She is a stylist who has a business that helps people living with cancer and going through Chemo by doing make-up, skin care and teaching them how to style and care for wigs. Two years ago she began giving people a pink hair weave at the Relay for Life to raise money for Breast Cancer research. She founded and trademarked her charity as Highlights For Hope.

So far there are a few other stylists in various Canadian cities who are starting chapters so they can help. If you know of a stylist who would consider starting a chapter in your town or area, e-mail me and I'll do my best to put you/your stylist in touch with her.

Here is a picture of Kelly getting ready to do a highlight for a Thunder Bay radio personality. Look closely and you'll see Kelly's weave.
