Hello all, on this lovely cool evening after about 10 mils of much needed rain!!!!!  I made two little bags in as many days and I'm very pleased with the results.  I had some silk dupion at home and made up the purple one first.  I then went into Spotlight Tamworth, where they still have some of this silk, and bought 40 cm of four new colours, including the green, which I made up today.  This green one is for one of my old friends who has a birthday next week, and her favourite colour is (yes you guessed it) green.  I machine embroidered both the front and back, lined the bags with matching cottons; nice green with white dots, and a mauve Liberty fabric for the purple one.  The finished measurement of the bags is about 8" x 10".  They were very easy to make!!!!

I will be making some more for Christmas gifts too.  Hope you like them.  Here are a couple of photos!!

DH is in the sewing room now, watching an old Monty Python movie I bought him for his birthday.  I won't go in and disturb him as he hardly ever watches movies.  Speaking of movies, I want to go and see the Young Victoria this week, hope it is still on.  I enjoy Historical novels and movies!!

Must go and check out some more blogs before I go to bed!!

God bless, until next time

Hi Marynan,
Your bags are lovely as are all your previous ufos you have recently finished. Your pressy for the Christmas swap looks intriguing - I suspect I know who it is for (not me) and I'm sure she will be pleased. I have just started on mine - we will be away for three weeks in November so I picked a gift with a lot of handwork so I can take it with me.
Bye for now
