Playing with my sewing machine before it gets packed away (house move in the offing!) I embroidered three pug dogs onto a square of fabric and made it into a fully lined tote bag with a zipped inside pocket. Straps are long enough to carry bag on shoulder. I'm not that keen on dogs to be honest but still trying to find a good pattern of cats!
I've also been making cosmetic purses, all with contrast linings. I love making these!

A grey faux suede hobo style bag and a patchwork bag in the same style

And finally, my 'piece de resistance' my very first attempt at a quilt.
Right, I'm off now to get ready to go out for a meal to celebrate my 43rd wedding anniversary!
