Today is the official first day of summer!
To bring in the new summer season,
I thought it would be fun to have a

The prize will be a new 'summery' purse
that I crocheted this week.
The purse is an orange sherbert theme
with summer daisy pockets and straps.

in a post on your blog.

If you'd like,
you can use the above graphic. ;o)
To use the graphic,
you'll need to click on it
to bring it up in a new window
and then save it.

If you don't have a blog,
you can still participate
by leaving a comment with your name
and then check for the winner
on next Saturday. ;o)

Contest will end
Friday, June 29th, 2007 at midnight.
Winner will be announced that Saturday morning.

Lovely purse--you did a wonderful job! Would you mind sharing where you got the pattern, or did you make it up yourself? :-) I just came across your blog tonight for the first time, but think I will join in the fun of the contest. My oldest daughter (7 1/2 yrs.) would love this and would also love to learn to crochet one herself!
