looking ahead

I think this will do very well for the winter.

Very pleasant to stitch felt and wool for a change. There’s something very satisfying about stitching something that is so thick and yet so soft.

Bright colours always make you feel cheerful.

And home is where the heart is. Or maybe heart is where the home is.

      I’m hoping it’s quite robust – and I did carry 2lb of apples in it yesterday without damage to any seams, so fingers crossed for a long and happy life 🙂

    So beautiful! I love the heart and home motif, though I saw it first as a face giving the bag a personality. (I must remember to put my glasses on when I look at the screen!) x

    Your stitching is lovely. I have just done a post about the Magic Feather project and have also shared a link to your blog.

    Both bags are lovely, Karen – this felt and wool one and the repaired one. And both unique! Funny how we can put off ‘mending’ something for ages, yet love picking up the needle for embellishing / creating something new! I know my sons can’t get their heads around it and I’ve often wondered why, myself!
