I have done more cross stitching,
trying to keep on top of the huge blocks of colour
My workmate does not have a nice shopping bag, when she uses mine she loves them. So this bag is for her. I have not told her I am making it, I just asked her Red or Navy, as I had both colours in my stash.
Again the fabric was in my stash.
And pinned one to the outside and inside overlaping.
When I stitch them together the body of the bag is running through them
I will make a couple of side gussets, machine sew the outside and hand stitch the inside, so no rough edges are seen. This is totally my own design, and I might have to make another for me.
our local library provided these for me to read.
I love Sunday mornings, I caught up with blogs and did a few things on my computer, after breakfast I had a lazy shower. Late morning we popped to see Will, mum and dad, they were all happy, arriving just in time to feed Will.
This afternoon, I have sorted a few things, popped to the greenhouse to water and check all is doing well. Then I planned the bag I wanted to make, I do not have the exact red thread to use for sewing it together, so I will get some tomorrow. I am very organic with my designs, I do not have a paper pattern, this is simple enough to not need one. The red is a heavy cotton, so it will hold the weight of the items placed inside.
So a pleasing weekend, tomorrow I am back to work, my week's holiday went so very quick, but I did manage to have loads of fun, did a bit of shopping for things we needed, and a great catch up lunch with a friend.
I am waiting for my new potting bench to arrive and some cross stitch fabric for future projects.
