New Bag, New Award

Last week I was given this lovely award by Amy. Do have a look at Amy's blog as she writes some very interesting posts, especially about here how she copes with her illness.

Here are the rules:

Link to the giver – link to the ones you give to, and give them to at least seven bloggers. Notify them of the award.I am going to give this award to...

I love reading all the above blogs and having a peep at what they are making.

On the making front I have managed to make myself a bag out of Micheal miller fabric , 'Sundaes', which I love. I thought this bag would go with my jeans and it's handle is just big enough to pop on my shoulder out of the way. I got the pattern for it from here its a great blog full of lovely handmade items.

I have made another two sales in my Folksy shop last week so it is beginning to look a bit empty think it will be a while before I get any more items in there as I want to do some dress making for myself, we go away in a couple of weeks time and even though I have probably got enough clothes to take with me I still like to have a few new items to wear. Think this comes from when we were kids and Mom used to get us new clothes for our holidays and then the next lot of new clothes you got were at Christmas, not like our kids now who have things all the time.

Well I'm off to do some housework, how boring, I'd rather be sewing.

Thanks so much Jo, I'll pop it on my blog next time I post. By the way, I'm really chuffed with my new bag. I'm going to use it on our nice days out.

I love your bag and congratulations on opening a Folksy shop.

Our trip to Norwich was wonderful. It's so nice to get out of the city and to the nice countryside. Laverham is so lovely, I really like the thatch roof houses there and the quaint little shops.

Good luck with the house work. I'd rather be knitting/sewing too. :)
