So what was in it? Let's take a look........
It's a handmade bag from the very talented Hen from Henhouse (Hen House Blog). Hen has the most beautiful blog which showcases her fantastic handmade quilts and her love for everything vintage. I've been reading this blog for a couple of years and thoroughly enjoy reading about her latest makes and her regular trips to her West Country Cottage. Have a read ... you will be hooked!
Do you want to have a closer look at the handbag? I've chosen it for my Mum, with Mother's Day soon approaching it was the perfect spring gift.
Anyway, all this talk about handmade makes me think about my crafting progress this week. As you know I've been working on an Easter Commission, a delicate little cardigan based on my Spring Basket Cardigan . Knitted in the same Patons Cotton DK, it is in white and has the block design only on the edges of the bodice and sleeve, which are then hand embroidered with pretty blue and lemon flowers. Here's work in progress:
I'll hopefully have it finished soon and will post the finished pictures. So I'm off to do a bit more now........................
Goodbye for now
