I have got to stop making bags!

However I just have  a few more to make!  Yesterday we popped over to the Isle of Wight (10 minutes on the Hover and 10 minutes from our house to the terminal - so it is popping!) - lovely time on Ryde beach, stopped for tea at grandmother's and of course popped into the charity shops (rude not to!) - bought a few bits and bobs including this piece of embroidery for £2.  Started sewing within five minutes of getting home...


  1. But bags are so useful and a girl can't have too many! You actually waited 5 minutes before you started on this one? Of course, a cup of tea is called for first!

    I have distant memories of Ryde beach, we went there on a Sunday School trip and I was so excited!

    Best wishes from Mary

  2. Just came across your blog and have enjoyed reading it whilst eating my lunch! Love your bags and bunting. And yes...Aqua Manda - yummy smell. And India - so weird and wonderful - I've been there too(3x)and am desperate to go back. Oh - and I'm your newest follower! BW.

  3. Hello Jenny, I'm back! And I posted yesterday evening a little note on my blog, l'esperluette bleue, which means the blue &.
    Have a lovely day!

  4. Hello! I was hoping to feature some of your home photos in my upcoming magazine, and wanted to talk with you about it but I can't seem to find a contact email. Please let me know if you would be interested! Thanks, Alice

  5. £2?! I have never been fortunate enough to find any embroidery of this calibre in charity shops, and this kind of thing is extortionate in the local vintage/antique places! You lucky thing!
