This one reminds me of a sweater vest from the 1950s or argyle socks. But you can clearly see the date of 1768 on the inside. Lining the pocketbook in typical fashion is pink glazed wool. For some odd reason that is an extremely popular lining material and color for pocketbooks in New England.
So different in colorway and design from the others. The carnation pattern is one of my favorites. The image is upside down to focus the eye on the carnation pattern. The small flap and silver clasp should actually be going the other way. The pocketbook is sitting on it's head. Green silk lining on this one.
I always have a pocketbook in the works. It is soothing, mindless stitching. One that you can pick up and put down with no worries about wondering where you left off. I am on my third one. Almost done.
I chose vibrant pinks, yellows purple and green as my color combinations based on this original.
So colorful and happy, the vivid designs jump out at you. Looking at all these makes me want to finish mine right away. But a lot of projects are in between then and now.
