I have been working on another one of these bags, just got to add the rest of the decoration. This one is a slightly different shape to the first, curved at the bottom, mainly because I was running out of the felted wool, which is a shame as I do like the mottled background with the burgundy and green flowers and leaves.
Next, will be some stock for the Etsy shop 'Pink' range, which I've started playing around with some ideas for already. The two little green owls were given to me by my mother-in-law, sweet aren't they?
We had a great trip down to London, although it did make me realise that the last 3 years of being a stay at home mum have left me feeling a bit out of touch. I came to two decisions on the train on my way home,
1. I need to subscribe to Selvedge magazine to get up to speed with what's going on in textiles these days, and...
2. I need to go clothes shopping, there are so many fashion trends that seem to have passed me by!
Thank you for all the get well wishes, they are much appreciated and I am feeling much better I'm pleased to say. Plus, how fantastic is this?! A lady called EmilyT left a comment on the eye patch tutorial post...
"You're going to be famous in Cuba! In a couple weeks I'm going down with our church group, and I had been asked to bring the stick-on patches for four kids in their neighborhood. I hated to bring something that could only be used once and thrown away.
So I took your wonderful directions, translated them into Spanish, added the photos (which are really helpful) and will bring them, together with an assortment of felt and decorations. Folks can make many many of their own. Thanks, see how your goodness spreads all over!"
Emily, if you see this (unfortunately, blogger has given me no way of contacting you), I am so pleased!, I'd love it if you were able to send me some photographs.
Right, decision time, mop kitchen floor or sew, while Luke is still asleep..., what would you do?!
