YES, YOU COULD SAY WE'VE ALWAYS BEEN
RED, WHITE AND BLUE...
(Lynyrd Skynyrd...shows I'm an ageing hippie!!)
A very patriotic desk this week.
Julia's ScrapLady compadre, Ally, asked me if I could make one of those mini totes for her in the Union Jack fabric I had stashed away. It was a close thing but I JUST had enough fabric to squeeze one out! I gave her the choice of three different linings and she chose the taupe.
Top stitching the side pockets. I topstitch everything - looks neater to me!
Et voila! Just the right size in which to cart a few crafty things if you don't want to lug the massive tote around :-)
These totes plus a few other things sold really well at Julia's card workshop last Saturday, raising £110 for Guide Dogs for the Blind. Thanks for the support, I was really pleased :-)
And finally....another landscape pic for Elizabeth. It's Barbury Castle, an Iron Age hillfort (400 - 50 BC), part of a chain of forts all along the Ridgeway (a 5,000 year old trackway through Wiltshire.) Listen carefully - maybe you'll hear the skylarks too, singing away as they soar up into the blue.
Have a great week!
