I haven't managed to organise myself sufficiently to get photos up of some of the other bits and bobs I've made lately, but it's a wet rainy Friday with no view of improving over the weekend, so hopefully in the next couple of days.

I was so delighted today when a sometimes visitor in the office admired my wallet, and then when I thanked him and declared 'I made it' he responded with utter disbelief and reiteration of thinking it was cool. Yay. :-)  It has a few flaws, as I really couldn't bring myself to put my poor sewing machine through sewing through sooooo many thicknesses, including vinyl - this after breaking 2 leather needles!  But I love it anyway, and have  some great ideas on how to redesign it next time to be kinder to my sewing machine.

Last night I started on a square-ish bag of my own design.  I got as far as the lining, realised I'd mis-calculated the length required for the gusset/strap piece and went to bed after midnight with my sketch book and redesigned how I was going to finish it - now I can't wait for aforementioned rainy weekend so I can do just that!

That's it for now, but hopefully more photos and finish-offs within the next couple of days.
