I received this email from a member of the group about another member. You may know her - Diane. As you may know, Diane does amazing work with fabrics. I suspect that it is part of the creative component of her personal practice, although I have not heard her say as much in plain English.
I tried to copy the email I received here, but it didn't work, so I'm pasting excerpts and links below.
I'm forwarding on the newsletter of StudioKat Designs who makes patterns for purses and wallets. My good friend Diane Rhodes entered the bag she made for me in the monthly contest and is looking for votes. Many of you met Diane at the Western PA Reiki and Wellness Fair where she also donated a Steeler Bag and Wallet to the Chinese Auction.
If you would like to help Diane win the Handbag of the Month contest there is a link about halfway down to vote.
Here is a picture of my bag and Diane's inspiration - I just love it! (http://www.studiokatdesigns.com/poll201.jpg

"Handbag of the Month" Gallery-
There was a LOT of action in our
September Handbag of the Month Contest!
are the fabulous entries for this month...
Erica Stopczynski of Port Ewen, NY created this terrificPresto Purse. She says she gets TONS of compliments on it and i can see why!
Erica loved her 1st Presto Purse so much, she created this summery version, complete with flamingoes!!! Here's how it looks on the flip side. Don't you just love Erica's zipperpulls?
Diane Rhodes of Monroeville, PA
pieced together her Trifecta exterior with 2 Starr Fire charm packs. Isn't it amazing? I especially love the way she matched the stripes on the front to the ones on the back. You can see this real well in this side shot. And the purple interior solidifies the whole look. Diane said that she made this bag with an extra long strap for a very tall friend who has a color burst on her business card!
Here's a very creative Encore Purse Insert, submitted byMarilee Glover of Virginia Beach, VA. She said that rather than embellish the Insert (since it would be IN her bag), she jazzed it up with colorful zippers (from Zipperstop), AND having different color zippers really helps her find things inside her purse. GREAT!
And here's the first DittyRoothat's been entered in the Handbag of the Month contest so far! The 'master' behind this 'piece' is Mary Molner of Pacific, MO. Mary said she followed the instructions in ourDittyRoo embellishment tutorial and 'it worked out like a charm'. She loved the process so much that she's making plans to make another. Let us SEE it when you do, Mary!
