How long?

Wow! Has it really been so long since I posted to my blog.
Since my last entry I have moved back to UK from Spain first into a rented apartment for six months and then into our own house last August.
It's been busy but I've still managed to craft. However it has been mostly about knitting, crochet and sewing.
I've taken up my needle and thread again after a long break and will post something stitchy related soon.
Meanwhile this is my latest sewing finish.


Here is how it looks on the inside with a zippered pocket


and with the little fabric I had left I sqeezed out a zippered pouch


So it's not much of a post but a small start. I hope to be back with some finished stitching soon.
If there is anyone still reading here thanks for visiting :)
Margaret

The bags are wonderful!

That is such a pretty bag.
When we moved back to England after 12 years in France it took me ages to feel 'straight' again.

Good to see you back blogging Margaret, so many people seem to be giving up now and going on to Facebook instead which I don't subscribe to. Look forward to seeing some amazing stitching in the future.

Hallelujah, you're back.....I'm not going to say any more...haha! It's really fantastic having one of the best ever blogs around up and running again. Your bag is lovely, such pretty fabric and a really useful size. There's always an extra goody and your little pouch is such a clever extra. Love the uplifting captions.
So glad the urge to stitch has returned. Nurture it . I can't wait to see what You are stitching.

Oh my, Margaret, how wonderful that you are back to blogging. I was so excited when I saw your blog post pop up in my reader. And yes, here you are with a new bag creation. Gorgeous fabrics that you used for it, and so nice the little pouch that goes with the bag. Now I can't wait to see your latest stitching projects :))
