My pocketbook!

I start the 2nd day of my new blog by saying first, Welcome to my backyard! Then, I say: I LOVE EARLY MORNINGS!!! And No!'s not because I hardly ever get a whole night's sleep and I BETTER love early mornings!...Although I won't discount the small truth in that statement. No,...I love the quiet, the time to mentally plan, work problems out, get some studying done without distractions, watch an old movie, and you know it...CROCHET!

      In fact, I just took some time a few mornings ago to finish a chocolate brown purse I've been working on. The initial crocheting of the purse was easy...crocheting is like breathing to me now! But the figuring out of whether to put a zipper in it and have it be a clutch purse, or whether to crochet straps, put a flap over it, put a lining in it, or add handles and let that be that, was mind consuming and tedious! The pictures included show what I finally decided to do...Don't look for zippers, straps, or a lining. 
 The part you can't see of the purse is the inside, where I had to sew the handles on, then crochet 4 squares and sew them OVER the handle ends! I figured MY frustration shouldn't be YOUR frustration, having to look at it!!!...The end result came out pretty good though, even if I do say so myself! And it reminded me of this corny poem I wrote MANY years ago...Be kind! I know this one is not that good, but it's mine! And like a newborn ugly baby, some things you just have to accept, and move on!

To Be My Pocketbook!

I go everywhere with you.
I am always by your side.
I hold all of your possessions.
I am where your secrets hide.

I hold all of your money,
and the pictures you hold dear.
I hold your make-up and I.D.
I make you feel secure, when near.
 I'm your new pocketbook, every year!
