and keep smiling

I was really rather pleased with yesterday's freehand sewing adventure and when woken too early this morning by an ageing dog I found my mind quickly abuzz with variations and plans.

Once my caffeine levels were fully restored and my charges had all left safely for the day I entered the sewing room and quickly pushed aside other more pressing, but much less amusing, projects and got to work.

Because it was essential I visit the butcher's shop this very day and it was entirely clear in my mind that this trip might prove quite impossible without my brand new shopping bag dangling oh so delightfully from my shoulder.

A friendly missive upon its front should remind me of my reason for leaving home this cold March day and save me from being distracted from my mission, which, believe it or not, really can happen all too easily. Thankfully the bag was completed and sausages procured, success all round.

There are most certainly more bags in the offing and I hope to have some in my shop as soon as light and wind conditions allow for better photography!

Love, love, love it! That's my absolute favourite Liberty print. My hubby has a bag made from it (in a different colourway)with is name appliqued on the front that his mum made him to carry his PE kit when he was at primary school. Sweet. Loving the freehand sewing and the simplicity of your designs. Laura x

Beautiful - simple yet interesting visually with the bright bit of colour - and I love the words. I always love stitched words on textiles!
