Progress and a new Spring Handbag

I finished the new handbag and what a task that was. I think it was the most complicated bag I have ever made, but worthwhile I think. I will give it a "test run" this weekend and see how it goes. It feels quite big to carry but I am sooooooo happy with how it all came together.

Well only three sleeps until the Stitchers Dream Day Out and I can't wait. Hopefully the day will be lovely. I am sure it will be. I have gathered all my threads together and am so looking forward to our surprise projects. Rosalie Quinlan, Natalie Bird, Leanne May and Lynette Anderson will be there, so we should be in for a real treat.

The new garden project is coming along nicely, I have to wait patiently now for my dear Dad to bring all the fencing/gate panels in from the farm so we can figure out the next part and then we will work out the little garden beds. Can't wait!!

Hi Leisa, your bag looks fantastic! I wish I had the ability to be able to make one like that! Thanks for answering all my questions! Over here we get 13 weeks school holiday a year- 6 for summer at the end of July, 2 for Easter in March, 2 for Christmas at the end of December, and one week in October, and one week in May!! I find it really interesting comparing these facts!!

Hi Leisa, Fancy discovering that you have a blog site! How I miss you and Bronny and all your inspiring stitching. Adelaide is really missing something in that regard, so hopefully your blogs can fill the spot! Love hearing how your house and garden are going, they look great. By the way, is that you in the photo? You have a new hairstyle - looks fabulous, but didn't recognise you! It's been way too long, so keep up the good work and I'll feel like we're keeping in touch! Love Lesley x
