My reason for learning to sew

Year after year, I have seen the most beautiful bags, hanging up on the Button Angel stall, at craft shows. And time after time, I have asked whether I could buy one, ready made, only to be told "no, they are a kit!" They contain lots of embroidery, patchwork and appliqué and as a non sewer, I didn't think I would ever have one. Anyway, after learning to sew I took the plunge and bought the kit that had the least embroidery and appliqué on and decided to give it a go. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. (The front is the same as the back)

Tippling Toad

I bought this kit from the House of Zandra, during my recent visit to the craft show at Event City. I suspect it's something stronger than tea in his cup, judging by the expression on his face lol!

I made this......

cute little elephant from a book called 'Edward's Managerie' by Kerry Lord. She only took a few days to crochet.

Four Months Later......

and I've finally finished the Sophie's Universe Crochet Along. It was a huge learning curve, as nearly every one of the 113 rounds was different, but I learnt so much along the way! I used the same colours as Dedri, the designer, used in hers - too much learning new stitches to do, without having to think about colour choices too!
