Here is a beaded purse I am working on right now.  It is the Blue Moon Beaded purse that Kathy (Katchkan over at Crochetville) created.   It seems like a difficult thing to do but in actuallity is quite simple.  When I saw Kathys posting of this purse and found out that she made this with larger beads and size 10 thread I knew I had to try it.  I had purchased another purse pattern from Kathy previously and it called for size 20 thread and 13 beads and a  12 hook.  Suffice it to say I became was intimidated with all the tininess that I put it on the back burner. Having finished the one side I now know what needs done and am not so intimidated.  After I finish this purse I will be definately going back to my smaller purse and finishing that one up.  I will be posting as I go along on the progress of this purse.

Image hosting by PhotobucketI have to agree with Kathy that taking pictures of beaded items can be difficult.  But I think you get the general idea although in person the design is spectacular.

Well the only benefit to being sick for the last few days is that I have been able to hang out with my beads and thread and everyone leaves me alone.  That is the only problem I have found is that when your trying to string on beads and people distract you your counts can be way off which sucks.  Well hope you all enjoy and if by chance your interested in this pattern you can go to Kathys site at: and check out her patterns.   She is readily available if you have a problem.   Well thats about it for now hope you all have a great day.
