Making stuff with a view

I changed the position of my desk on sunday
to get a better view of the gorgeous Moctezuma tree outside.
The leaves mobile was made from three placecards
I kept from our Thanksgiving dinner.
It's hanging from my lamp :o)
I made myself two little purses this week.
The orange one is knit & the other is just sewn wool fabric
with appliques of wool felt, inspired by the pillow I made for my friend Ana.
They both have natural color linen liners inside.
I got the idea from Martha Stewart's Holiday Handmade Gifts Special issue
