I just received this purse from the finisher and before I could do a blog post, a customer from Austin came by the shop, fell in love with it, ordered the canvas, took a photo, and posted it to the Steph’s Stitching blog, which was then picked up by the Chilly Hollow blog! Then I received two emails this morning from stitchers who recognized that the picture was taken at The Point of It All and wanted details on the purse! So, what I am conveying with those run-on sentences, is that there is a NEEDLEPOINT FRENZY over this purse!
As well there should be…it is divine! The canvas, double sided and on 13 mesh, is the Adelaide style from Elizabeth Turner Collection. I’ve just looked at their website and it’s under construction so you can’t see the other canvases that come in this style alas. The one I did is called Moroccan Tile and comes in teal instead of purple. But I am obsessed with purple so I stitched over the teal. Cost is $276. We can add your monogram, too, if you want. I chose black patent leather but there are lots of leather colors available. I lined the purse in bright yellow to add even more zing when you open it!
Come by the shop and check out the purse in person. I have the Elizabeth Turner catalog for you to flip through, too!
