Well I am far too awake for 11.50pm and so instead of wasting time, I thought I would come visit the Blog land. I take great joy in reading other peoples blogs; they are so inspiring and heart warming, although at times I am also struck in awe by the creations and beauty that the wonderful blogging women I chose to follow actually produce. Blogs are a great source of inspiration for many of us and countless projects have taken form through the images, patterns and colours that are shared.
I also find inspiration in the items of old. Whether is is embroidery, quilting crochet or painting. Just before Christmas I made a beautiful discovery in my favourite vintage / antique shop.
I have decide I am going to have a go at replicating her pattern to create a new bag as a tribute to her beautiful bag. My Dad who is a great carpenter has agreed to make wooden handles which are reinforced in the middle as so many of these handles appear to have a weakness. Now I can't guarantee this bag will be made in weeks as I have more pressing but less fun commitments right now, that is I need to finish writing a thesis by March. But watch this space! Good night all!
