Birthday Presents

Twilight gave me this knitted purse for my birthday! It's a matching one to hers that she's carried for years now. It's Che...the iconic figure of revolution!! This is the back side.....very cool. The inside is beautifully lined and has great little pockets. She did an awesome job on the zipper.

Inside the purse...was this beautiful skien of yarn that she picked up on her trip down to the Southern part of the state. Twilight gives the best gifts!! I love them!! I can't wait to see what I'm going to do with this!

Love the bag!
My one daughter is an art teacher in the Middle School I also teach in.
Last year the art teacher that teaches with her had a student that used this image in a project he did and the teacher posted it in one of the hall galleries.
The district we teach in was mostly Cuban years ago and there are still some Cuban families around. One of the custodians be came very upset and the picture had to be taken down. My husband came from Cuba running away from that very revolution but would be the first to say he came to this country because of freedom of speech and taking that picture down is hard for him than look at the figure that caused him such difficulty.
Sorry for the long comment but thought you might be interested in the story.
By the way if my Dad,who was also Cuban,were here he would feel the same.
