New Bag - SKOW

The May project for the On line Stitch-along is the bag from the
Annie Downs book Some Kind of Wonderful.

I wanted to make it the same as the book but I am trying to use what I have
and the only Linen I had on hand was blue, so that is what I went with
and I am loving how it looks.

I used a Cottage Gardens Thread - Peacock No. 1201

I left out the slit in the back for fear that I would "stuff it up"
and when it came to the inside I added a pocket, a "d ring" and
a magnetic clasp.

Now, I could have scheduled this post to go up on the first, especially being it is the
May item for the Sitich-along but nope. I sat up until midnight last night working on it and finished the
binding around the top whilst watching Junior Football at 9am this morning
so it is being Blogged now!  :o)

Must say that I think my Sewing Mojo have given me a huge kick up the ......
as I how have three finishes in three days but please do not think that I did
all of this one in one day. The stitchery panel and pieces have been pinned to my
design wall for a couple of weeks now. I've just been procrastinating about
finishing this one :o)

Now if you just excuse me I have a bit of a mess to clean up in my sewing space
and another load of washing to get on.

Enjoy your Sunday,
hugs, Sharon
