A Gentle Nudge....

Yes, I am still here. I have just returned to work after my summer break and as usual I am finding it hard to get back into any routine, so Secret Angel I'm sorry for the absence but thank you for the gentle nudge to get me back here again.

At the moment I am making a baby bag for a friend's daughter who has just had a beautiful baby girl. The bag pattern I got from a tutorial by A Mingled Yarn , thank you for the directions and I hope it looks as good as hers. I figured that she maybe had so many pink presents bought for her, so thought I would make the bag in a girly fabric but not pink. I have used a beautiful fresh blue floral print from Cath Kidston but I used a Michael Miller print in pink with coloured dots on it for the lining, a bit of a modern twist I know but I think it works (I hope!). This is a work in progress photo......well I have the fabric cut out, and I hope to have it sewn up this week (fingers crossed!).

what a lovely idea for the baby.
I also find it hard to get motivated. Guess the holidays make us relax too much, or rather let go of any routine we may have. have you heard the roar, it was me flying over checking on you. hugs.
