A piece of art . . .

According to DIY Guy... and in his own words --
    this purse is "like a piece of art"

and to tell you the truth, I definitely agree with him!

My friend made it for me.
I was supposed to make it.
I'm not so good at knitting, and this was a bit complicated.
When my friend moved away, 
I knew I'd never make it - it required too much skill.
When she offered to make it for me
I didn't hesitate.

She knitted it.
Then "boiled it" so the wool yarn
would shrink to make it a beautiful purse.

I told myself I wasn't going to use it until I took a picture of it and thanked this amazing woman for taking the time (and sacrificing her hands) to give me such a beautiful purse.

I hate to use it and ruin it --- but it's been sitting in my living room for a couple weeks now.  It's time.  I shall use it when I got out tomorrow night with DIY Guy.
