Work in progress
My goodness! Where oh where has the week gone. I have been quiet on the blog front but busy making, I keep leaving it too late in the day for decent photographs and did have great plans for today but the light was terrible all day. I have always wanted to do one of those WIP posts but never seem to be remember in time, anyway, here is my WIP for today. Sorry about the photo, I left it too late again and it was already pretty much dark outside but tomorrow I should have the finished object to show you in any case. I wanted to make a gift for a very kind (and extremely talented) lady, she is the aunt of a good friend and has been incredible kind to me. Her kindness includes the loan of a spinning wheel (I have been quiet about that because I just haven't had a good opportunity to sit down and really get to grips with it yet, soon, very soon) and several large bags full of all sorts of crafting treasure, fabric, felt, lots of assorted fleece, tops, fibres, all sorts of colours. Some of this stuff has provided (and will continue to provide) hours of fun creating things with the children but some of it is much too good to share with them and I have kept to myself.

As you can see, I am making her a bag, which I hope will be useful for carrying crafting type things around, or anything else she might care to carry I suppose. More tomorrow.

I empathise totally with leaving it too late in the day to take decent photographs - mine now have an orange glow from the necessary light bulbs. Your sketch looks wonderful - can't wait to see the finished bag. I love the fabrics you plan to use.

What a lovely gift you received. I think the excitement of craft items, whether it's wool, fabric, paint and paper, etc. is in their potential. What beautiful thing is it going to become? I know you'll do a great job on the bag.

I am sure it will be lovely as all the bags you have made . I do hope you get as much enjoyment out of the spinning as I have. Have you thought about joining your local guild as I find mine so friendly and helpful.

Oh, this looks so nice and I am so much looking forward seeing your bag. That´s because not only for loving your taste and style, but also because I am planning some bags as Christmas presents by myself and your´s will certainly be an inspiration! (Great sketch, I like the way you wrote down everything, above all the little scratches of fabric. Beautiful inspiration book.)
