I finished my wallet/purse today. I'm excited to use it. I'm more excited that I finished something today. I'd be even more excited if I opened it up and there was a bundle of money stashed in it. If I make this again, I'll make a couple changes. Where the card holders are, I would make that into another zippered pocket instead of it being sewed closed. That part folds up to reveal a checkbook pocket. I don't carry a checkbook so I'd make that into a deeper pocket that velcros shut.
I got the solid borders on Orca Bay and then put the side pieced borders on. No problems at all. I was pressing the top border and all of the sudden I spotted this! Whoopsie!! I bet the bottom border looks kind of like this one..........at least it isn't sewn on. So I will sit with Ernie, find a movie worth watching and unsew. Then I'm going to knit.
While Ernie was out getting a head start on next winter's firewood, I made a batch of elk jerky out of hamburger. A friend had told me she makes her's using her dehydrator and this press. So I picked up a press in town yesterday and made jerky today. It's pretty darn good and quite easy! I got out a couple more packages of burger to make more tomorrow because I know this package will disappear fast.
