Anne's Purse 8" x 9"

My sister Anne requested a felted purse after she saw the autumn dragonfly purse I posted last November.  But her favorite colors were pinks, oranges, and aquamarine blues.  Excited when I found the perfect yarn, I crocheted and felted it only to learn that the angora doesn't mat down.  Hence the soft fuzziness.

I was looking forward to delivering the purse to Anne in person at a family reunion next week.  But she died suddenly on July 20.  That her daughter Elizabeth wanted to have it is truly comforting.
Oh, Annie.
