The sun is shining today so I have taken full advantage of it to take some photos show you.
First up is a gorgeous bag that Liz has made me. This bag is really special, as when Liz knew that I had not got into the Mouthy Stitches 2 swap she emailed me to say that she would like to make me a bag. I think that that was so thoughtful and kind. I quickly said YES as Liz makes some fabulous things. Have a little look at her blog as you will spy some lovely makes.
A parcel came yesterday morning that contained my non MS2 bag. Look at it… it is beautiful.The front has a Japanese + and x block.

Liz revealed on her blog that she spent a whole afternoon straight line quilting the outside of the bag and that she had used extra special embroidery threat. I know what a pain straight line quilting can be, so I really appreciate all the work that has gone into this bag. I will also show you the inner fabric too as it is very cute.

Liz also gave me a key ring which is already in use as my existing one is a car garage nasty type of one.
This bag has accompanied me to town to do some shopping AND someone in the supermarket commented that they liked my bag.I felt a warm glow at that point. Thank you Liz for thinking of me and making me such a splendid bag.
