a purse always takes priority

A purse always takes priority. Even when one has 14,000 other projects in the making.

So, what should fall into my lap? ---> the May/June 10 issue of CROCHET today! and whew! the sheer pleasure of paging through this magazine can alone send me into a complete crochet tailspin.
For me, that is half of the fun ---> seeing every delicious project just sets me on fire.

And yes, purses have made my list of top 5 things e.v.e.r. --- so there was no way I could pass up the May Flowers Tote.

Using this gorgeous turquoise yarn and a size I hook, I began the easy pattern of a row of sc dc. And then a row of sc. That's it!
I want the sturdiness of being able to chock just about everything into this bag, so I chose a complimenting fabric to use as the liner.
And I will crochet some flowers to embellish when attaching the handles.

Definitely the color of pool water. And that is the best color after a soggy, rainy, cold spring.
