Do you remember the tea towel I bought? well it's now my favourite summer bag!!!
I've been sitting in the warm sunshine doing a bit of sewing
I just cut a slice off down the side to make the strap and folded the rest over, then stitched along the bottom and down the seam, then was the fun part, choosing buttons and ribbon and a lovely old clock face to pretty it all up,
I quite like the red and white strap with "glass" and "cloth" on it.
Another bag I made was a craft bag for a friend "pins and needles"
it's big enough to take all her crafty things along to the knitting group, and I lined it with some lovely red flowery fabric she gave me.
Last week I bought two brooches (yes more brooches!!!) from a lovely shop in Easingwold, I'm making the most of going to the knitting group there because as from next week I'm swapping Wednesdays off for Fridays so I won't be able to go which is a shame but then it will be nice to have Friday's off, anyway getting back to the brooches I saw these a while ago but they were a tad expensive at £20 but I saw them in a sale for £6 so I snapped them both up!!
Here they are displayed on a wooly vest I made to go on the childs hanger Rachel gave me and when I showed her what I had done she said "I've got another one at home that you can have" "ohhh yes please!"
and finally the bunting bit!!
I bought loads of this bunting from good old M&S to go outside in the summer some of it might just find it's way round the top the snug as it will go with the new picture and door mat from Mataland (as my friend calls it) they were a real bargain at only a fiver each.
I love it!!
and a first class doormat!
Right I'm going to make the most of the sunshine and hang my washing out on the line to dry and hopfully get it all ironed later on,
