The two purses are now on their way to their new home. It took a lot of time, but I really enjoyed making these. The Forever Spring Garden and Rose purses’ were ordered in time to be part of the funds I’ve donated to Lisa. It almost spurred me on to make the very best purses I could, thinking of Lisa with every bead sewn every flower and rose created.
I haven’t been updating my blog much recently and I apologise for not being around much to read my fellow bloggers posts, but I plan on doing a mass catch up over the next few days. It has been an emotional journey – the #MakeHerDay event I ran on Facebook created a huge response. Messages from people all over the world sending well wishes and praises for my work. I had an emotional cry nearly every day of the whole of June.
I learned only once the custom order was about to set sail, that my customer too is fighting her very own battle with Cancer. Not only that, she also knows what I am going through with a sister going through the same. I was so moved. Here she was, helping me support Lisa with her order, when she too deserves the very best support and love too. She doesn’t yet know (but probably will do once she reads this post) I have included a little something extra in the parcel just for her as a gift from me to say thanks and wish her and her sister all the best in their battle too.
Here is the completed Rose *Card Purse
All my love to you
