I'm thrilled to have a fellow Plotting Princess and author, Karilyn Bentley, with me today. She's got something special up her sleeve.
Hi Vicki! Thank you so much for having me on Handbag Monday! I'm a plain bag kinda girl, and trust me, you do not want to see my beat up black bag. <g> But my co-worker carried in one of the cutest bags ever, and I hope you think so too!
Isn't it adorable? What I love about it is the golden retriever. We had a goldie when I was a child and I'm a little partial to the breed. <g>
And how did I find this lovely bag? I was at lunch and my co-worker walked in carrying this cutie. I was like, oh my gosh, Vicki would LOVE this bag on her blog! So I asked the co-worker if I could take a pix of it. She looked at me as if a third eye had sprouted in my forehead, but let me snap away.
Dragon Lover, the third book in the Draconia Tales trilogy:
Predicted from birth to be mates, Aryana and Fafnir spent their youth running from each other and pursuing their own dreams. Aryana sought power and magic, while Fafnir escaped to explore other lands and to find a love not dictated by cryptic prophecy.
But after Fafnir is captured and magically locked in his dragon form, he returns to Draconia. Ashamed and broken, he hides his true identity from everyone, hoping Aryana will find a spell that will return him to his human self.
The last thing Aryana needs or wants is to find out her mate still lives-for a mated female cannot be a priestess, let alone the High Priestess. Yet his dragon's presence brings out her true abilities. When opposing dreams collide, will love be the victor?
Happy Monday and happy reading!! May your handbag always be cute and filled with goodies. <g>

Karilyn, that bag is sooo cute and I know dog lovers will want to know where your friend found it! I especially like the smaller tote handles. Thank you for being with me today!
Poinsettia bag: Week 2
Week 2 already! I've made lots of progress on the gusset. I've already used four skeins of a marvelous silk thread. This time, I'm using two strands which means more thread. I went to the store and bought four more, but I know I'll need way more than that when I get to the sides. And I switched to a very large tapestry needle with a sharp point and big eye. The work is going faster and I'm not having any tendon issues between my index and middle finger.
Paris bag: Update
The Paris handbag is at the needlepoint store and being sent to the finisher. We determined the size, the width of the gusset, and the length of the handle (11-13"). Stay tuned!
