Sorry I’ve been so bad about blogging! I’ve been super busy. One of the things I’ve done since I last blogged was go to Belize to SCUBA dive. You can check out my Belize photos on flickr here. I hope to blog more frequently this year to tell you about all of the interesting stuff I’ve been up to!

My new cabled Wanda Purse Pattern uses decreases to create a stylish flared shape. Wanda is a cabled felted purse with instructions and a pattern for a fabric sewn lining with customizable inside pockets. The Wanda pattern can be purchased at and through Ravelry for $6.

You can find more photos of the purse on flickr here.
