Stylish ladies finish
After much dithering about how to finish/finish my 5 stylish ladies, I finally settled on inserting them into the Lee's Needle purse for which they were originally designed. So I went from a tray to a leather purse to a nicely styled pre-finished purse. Of course, if you look closely, you can see where I had to add 4 rows of basketweave on each side. Thankfully that doesn't detract from the overall smashing look. I'm quite pleased with myself and can't wait to carry it in two weeks when I visit Cape Cod.
I spent two days this week putting my overdyed impressions on sale and pruning my inventory of watercolors to put on sale (50% off), both from the Caron Collection. I'm keeping about 60% of the watercolors selection, but decided to eliminate those color combinations that were less subtle in color transition.
This is a sampling of the watercolors selected for the sale basket.
