If you want a nifty little project to practice your zipper installation skills, hop on over to Noodlehead and try out her fabulous gathered clutch tutorial.

Yes, I'm aware there is a spider on my blog. This lovely little spider spun a web over my fruit bowl and was doing a marvelous job of catching and consuming 90% of the fruit flies in my kitchen.
