AND NOW FOR A NEW GIVEAWAY:
This is one of the pouches that was in the Austin airport display for several weeks. I have just gotten them back and this is the one I have chosen for the giveaway. It measures 5½" x 4" and has a piece of bobbin lace that I made stitched to it. The front image is the true color. I will randomly select the winner next Saturday, Dec.17th. You just have to leave a comment and you will be included in the drawing.
