Day off for a wedding


Today was a public holiday due to the Royal Wedding so I’ve not made much, only a couple of union jacks.  I’ve also had some lovely cake and a great time picnicking in a park.  So here are a couple of pictures from the day.

Red stripy seaside bag


Red stripy seaside bag

Having some free time over Easter gave me a chance to finish the bag I’ve been making for myself.  It’s made with red stripy material that give it a nautical feel, I’ve made it even more seasidey by painting and embroidering seagulls.  I had some problems with my original handles as they were fiddly to finish so I decided just to add a simple strap, it’s also longer than the original which I prefer.   I gave the bag a sort of crescent shape reminiscent of a ships’ bow and constructed two pockets, one for my iphone and one for other bits and pieces.  I’ve taken the bag out and about and it’s working great, it’s durable and roomy.  Now I just need to visit the seaside to test it fully ;).

Sunny Spring


Had a lovely Easter and spent a lot of time outside, eating, catching up with friends, walking and looking at the spring nature.

As it’s the weekend there isn’t a long post today.  Instead here’s some photos from my walks by the river yesterday.
