"I sewed this purse early in 2009 from one of your hat lady designs. I have also sewn other hat ladies for framing, which I have in my livingroom. I added some fancy stitching which is in my sewing machine to surround the picture. I also added a brooch and a silk flower. On the back of the purse, I did some other embroidery that is stored in my sewing machine.
Thank you for your great designs. I especially like photo stitch, and more especially either the religious designs or the Victorian ladies designs."
The design used is Young Lady in Straw Hat.
