I'm Back!.... Well nearly...

Got less that 20 papers to go so I have decided to get back into my Friday film habit by watching this...
and hopefully making some more of these..

I need sixteen squares in all. My crochet is still only as good as Granny squares but I would like to actually create something. I found this wool some months ago and have been waiting to think of an idea to use it and I found this via Inkberryblue called 'Inga's Crochet Bag', with my crochet skills I have decided to change it slightly. I hope to finish it very soon anfd make a fabric lining. I think this could look good in patchwork too. (Will need to track down the link, will be back with that)

I have finished another Cath Kidston zippered purse at my Wednesday sewing group..
I am going to list it on my website. At this point I think that I owe everyone an apology. I have had over 300 hits on my website and many must have thought why has she bothered. I have neglected it over the past few months with attic conversions and now complete house re-decorating. I really do appreciate the interest as I did not think that anyone would even look. So I intend to do something about this starting today as I have so many lovely things that I have made but not shown anyone. So sorry if you were disappointed when you looked at the website but do try again as I get my rear in gear!!
The film has finished and I really enjoyed it, a good twist at the end and you may want a box of tissues handy.
Hope to post much more from now on as work is starting to slow down a bit now and become manageable. Marmalade making and Oak flooring this weekend.
See you tomorrow.

Your crochet looks so pretty! I love the yarn. I'm really looking forward to seeing the bag when it's finished. Happy weekend. =]

just thought i'd drop in to answer the question you left on my blog about the quilt i made and posted today...you need about 1 yard each of the fabrics for the center squares and for what frames the center square (that would be the rose print and the hot pink print) because i also used those two fabrics for the border...for the other 5 colors, about 1/2 yard each will do...the quilt is just made up of 2 1/2" strips of fabric...=)...i had purchased 7 yards of fabric originally because i wasn't sure, but i have lots left over...

Don't worry about your blog. I've been reading for a while and I enjoy it. If people didn't post about their personal lives sometimes, blogging would be pretty boring.

I really want to get back to my website too, and wish there were more hours in the day to really make a go of it, as more of a business. Pigs might fly! I hope you get to spend more time on yours, and make some more sales. x
