Christmas is nearly over, unfortunately for me it has passed in a haze of the flu. I have coughed, spluttered, sneezed and slept through most of it. Needless to say I have not been very merry or crafty. Santa did see fit to ignore my grumpiness and I received lots of crafting goodies. As yet I have been unable to use as I have had to move back in with my lovely Mum & Dad because my boiler has decided to stop working again so we have no heating or hot water! Great way to start the new year.
Oh well, being poorly has given me a chance to read lots of blogs & come up with a great idea for my friends birthday. I can write about it on here as she is a very busy lady & I know that she doesn't get a spare five minutes. My friend is an amazing lady & I am very lucky to have her as a friend, so for this years birthday I am going to make her a bag. I have pouring through my Mum's books looking for ideas but as always it looks like the internet is going to be successful. I found a blog http://www.creativequiltgirl.com/2009/11/new-bag-is-done/ that directed me to a free bag pattern
I think that this is a great bag pattern & will leave me lots of scope to decorate the bag. So I have a new crafty project for the new year. Just need to start feeling better so I can go out shopping for fabric.
