The Bag Gallery

Saturday, February 20, 2010
When I spent time with our daughter over the Christmas holidays, she shocked me by saying, when she was looking at some stitching I was doing, "There's a gap between a couple of your backstitches.  It's not up to your usual standard."!!!  I was blaming the poor lighting (which was partly responsible) but I realised I was having difficulty seeing, so having my eyes tested went to the top of the priority list once we arrived back home.  So next week, I go to pick up my new glasses.  Meanwhile, I have been using my magnifying light to try to maintain my standard of perfection!  It would be wonderful one day to actually reach it!!!

I've mostly been working on a magazine commissioning this week, so can't show you photos of that, so I thought I would collect a few photos of different bags I have made. Bags are so much fun to make, aren't they?

I've been quite overwhelmed at the response to my new Gifts of Grace free BOM design.  Thank you for your support and all the lovely comments.  I have nearly finished stitching Block 4 so I am getting ahead of you!

Don't forget to share photos when you've finished your block.

Have a great week and happy stitching!
