Well the gorgeous bag frame arrived today from Lisa this morning. So much better than in the picture. I have drawn the pattern, even dug out my protractor to work out angles for the darts at the bottom. Whilst digging out the protractor i also found lots of lovely beads so may also make some more jewellery and stock up my folksy shop again. I made this necklace whilst watching Downtown Abbey on Sunday night? Does anybody watch it? I am very much in love with Hugh Bonneville. Am i alone in this infatuation?
I was sensible today and tried out the bag pattern on some spare fabric to make sure it works. It does, so will summon up the courage to cut the silk. I have decided to hand sew some beading onto the black silk to add a touch more bling. So i am also being reasonably wise and testing some patterns on scrap fabric. The Ladies night at the gallery is on th 12th November. No pressure then!
