I've got a few things still hanging around from last year to tell you about ...
After an almost exclusive diet of crochet from the summer up to the end of November, I decided to dust off the sewing machine in December. This City Shopper from Nicole Mallalieu's book, "You Sew, Girl!" was finished before Christmas, but I've only just got round to photographing it.
This bag has a long shoulder strap so that you can wear it across the body and is very roomy. The lining is the same raspberry colour as the button which I covered myself. Inside there is a large zipped pocket and I added a magnetic snap to the facing. Nice and easy!!
Also before Christmas, I was lucky enough to win a give away over at Tweed Delights. I love getting post, especially when it contains home crafted goodies!! The sheep button on the crochet purse is very, very cute!! Apologies for the dark photo - it's getting very difficult to find good light at the moment.
Lastly, I ordered this yarn as a treat just before Christmas and it arrived last week. It's a 100% silk, lace-weight yarn from The Natural Dye Studio called Precious and the colour is Firebolt. I haven't decided exactly what I'll be making ... but whatever it is, it will be for me! I may have mentioned it before, but orange is one of my favourite colours!!
