Ok, I have finished bag number 3. I didn't really want to show it all ragged edges and unfinished seams when I posted last night. This material reminds me of spring and lemon/lime splice!

Without the pressure of an imminent market I have little self-imposed sewing motivation at the moment. Seams are slowly sewn and buttons attached in spare moments I can grab in front of the Bernina. I have seven holdall handbags cut out and ready for assembly and have two and a half ready for you tonight (well, two - the half is unphotographed, but I hope to post it soon) . It's driving me crazy, as the fabric I'm sewing with at the moment is some of the most beautiful material I've used - I can't wait to see the finished products. I suppose you and I will have to wait a little longer. Here's something to whet your appetite in the meantime...

I've been inspired by the changing leaves this autumn to whip up a few new coin purses.
This has influenced my 'Let's go shopping' this week end to join in with the BrisStyle meme.

I've found some cute school fabric in my sewing box left over from some cushions I made for my niece. It's been made into a drawstring bag:
It's inspired my MadeIt roulette this week.
Here are some lovely, school related finds. I don't remember school being this much fun!
