New Bag.

But before I get to that! Seven days, yes only seven days left until we leave.
A week today at this time in the morning I'll have left the island and I'll be in Manchester. Hopefully I'll have stayed awake all night and I'll be exhausted and sleep all day over in the hotel.

So, that out of the way, here's a look at my new bag. Do you remember that fabric I showed the other day? You know the curtain samples my colleague gave me. Well the two red pieces spoke to me and here's what they wanted.
It's quite a spacious bag, plenty large enough to hold a couple of A4 (Foolscap) ring binders. I did have a small stitchery made which I planned to pop onto the front, but it just didn't look right, so I abandoned that idea. I didn't shape the bottom, I've left it flat. The lining is quilted and there are two huge deep pockets in there too. The fabric has a lovely rose pattern on it.
I've promised a bag similar to this to another of my colleagues, so guess what I'll be doing today. It's my weekend on call, so I'm not working but can't stray too far from home either, a perfect excuse to sit and sew all day. I feel a paler version of the above about to happen. Maybe I'll show it off tomorrow.

Very attractive bag--love the tassel! Counting down, is it torture or excitement at this point?
