ABOVE:  I made a super sized CUTE BAG... any bigger and it would not stay 'up' when opened, even this size was pushing it... but on a whole, it's a great beach bag size!  As you can see, I could fit heaps in it, it had masses more room too.

Today I am going to apply to have a stall at the Pokeno Market in November some time... and then see how it goes before committing to more.

As it's Monday, I am going to do my usual 'get the house clean and tidy' this morning and give that new vacum cleaner a thorough use.

After that I will probably get back to sewing that CUTE orange/purple bag I started saturday night.  And yes, I don't like orange, but that fabric is delightful... with the other colours in the pattern.  I don't discount ALL orange and green as super IKKKKK!  *smiles*


BLONDIE:  I have not found the right 'fabric' to make a waterproof inner one yet!  Don't get ahead of yourself.. or me!  lol

I'm almost finished the vacuming.... and I am totally over it already!  New machine or not, it's still vacuming... IKKKK.

ABOVE:  almost done!  Just got a wee bit of hand sewing to go.   And it's not ORANGE, it's Peach and Lilac... so there!  *smiles*

It is a glorious sunny day out there, and I have no desire to go out in it!  Too hot.  Going to have my 'brunch' now... cos it's after 1pm and I'm hungry....

End of Day:  whoops!  Got carried away doing bugger all this afternoon!  Even had a 'nana' nap!
Cooked mutton chops in mint sauce for dinner... super yummy.
Stated cutting out the next bag... will show you the fabric tomorrow..... it's some I've had for a while waiting for the right project.   nite nite.

  4. you crack me up. It really is easy to get over a new vacuum isn't it? Wish you were here you could try mine!!!I think that bag looks awesome. I actually posted some stuff I made once upon a time, with a pic at the machine for proof! I think if I had finished my craft room I might get with it again.

  5. PS I don't think I've told you yet but I love your hair auburn and that new pic and that gorgeous necklace that you probably made yourself!
