A busy week so far !

I have been busy this week, may not have all the pictures to show for it but promise you I have !!

This week in my day job I had a very big event on Tuesday,
the launch of the 2012 Ocean to City Maritime Festival.
Its kinda been my baby for the past eight years
(but not for too much longer! - more about that another day!)

Here's me, looking like a bit of a twit between two very dashing men in uniform !

Anyway yesterday we launched
in the beautiful penthouse suite in the Clarion hotel (yayyy!!) 
in the rain (uugghh!!!)
it involved lots of photos (yayyy!)
with me in them (uuugghh!!)
and lots of people turned up (yayyy!!!)
and I had to speak in public (uuugghh!!!).

Anyway we did get some publicity out of it & I even got my mugshot in the paper ! here and here !

So heres the latest bags I've been working on ....

I AM getting fond of hanging bags from trees!!

I love the dotty lining in this one !
I DO love these bows .... think I might try make a bag with 3 big bows down the front.
I like the colours in this bag but maybe, like me,
your getting a little fed up of the same old style of bag, so.....
I've had some shoe patterned fabric burning a hole in my stash for ages now so last weekend I made a casual summer clutch for a good friend of mine Mary from "Love your shoes"

I like the shape but think it needs a bow or a flower to jazz it up ... don't you ?

Only had a fat quarter of patterned material so I very sneakily split it between a pocket & one half of the lining !
Look out for some different bags soon as i took delivery of two fantastic bag making books today.
More about them soon !
Whilst I was in the garden I took two more pictures for you ...

We've got tonnes of bluebells pushing through everywhere at the moment.

And theres some goosberries growing on the gooseberry bush !!! (even more than the harvest of 4 whole berries I had last year!!!)

I'm looking forward to the jam-making days ahead!

Thank you for visiting !
