A postlet about wristlets
Steph recently celebrated a birthday and shared on her blog a particularly wonderful gift she had received, a Teacup Wristlet from her friend Sweetcakes. If you're a regular reader of Steph, as I am, you know that Sweetcakes is rather legendary as a friend, seamstress and baker extraordinaire. I commented on Steph's blog about how wonderful the wristlet would be for storing my iPod, and lo and behold, Sweetcakes was kind enough to make one for me. And here it is!
Is this not just about the prettiest thing you've ever seen? It's not just stitched, quilted, embellished and be-handled, it's also ... be-zippered. I officially don't do zippers. I stand in awe of people who do zippers. To say I am thrilled with my new wristlet would be quite an understatement!
A few weeks ago, I thought I had lost my iPod. I've been having issues with leaving either the earphones or the USB port at the office, greatly affecting my ability to keep up with the Barnes and Noble "Meet the Writers" podcasts (which are excellent, by the way). Now I have a solution for keeping all those pieces together, and it couldn't be a more stylish one. Thank you so much, Sweetcakes!
