It was lovely to make something just for the fun of it - no tweed involved, just this little linen zipper purse, lined in one my fave Japanese cotton prints. It was just crying out for a little embroidery detail which was great fun to do, just freestyle, making it up as I went along. I used an older sampler as reference/inspiration and of course my Doodle-Stitching book by Aimee Ray - highly recommended for the novice embroiderer!
It's the perfect size for my digital camera and much prettier than my standard bulky camera bag :) I'm off for a family break now for ten days - a few of them to be spent on a city break in Edinburgh - ooooh, smoke, pollution, noise - I can't wait, hehe!!
I've just ordered some new stock of Harris Tweed too, from a local weaver I was purchasing from previously - I can't wait to get my new stash, it's hard to stop crafting when I'm enjoying it so much but 'needs must'! - I'll 'see' you when I get back from my hols - Bye for Now :)
