De Ja Vu

This morning I woke up to yet more rain!  It feels like I'm back in the UK!  I'm in a pondering mood today.  All week I have gradually been slipping into the abyss of chiding myself for not getting things done as fast as I'd like.  I set targets, I changed them.  I made lists, I added to them.  Little wonder I started to feel at odds with everything.  So this morning I pondered the meaning of my life and decided that actually I have achieved what I originally set out to to do this week.  So unlike Lovely Man who announced he's off down to the basement to 'do bizzies' I am going to have a day of indulgence.  Blogging, painting, baking and a little ballroom dancing at lunch time!

I have made my target of five bags over the last few days.  I am now waiting for some good daylight to take better photos ready to list them on Etsy, but here's a sneak preview:

I am still a little undecided on how to sell these.  We have a craft fair coming up at the end of November and the locals are keen for me to have a table, but I'm not sure I can get enough stuff made in time to do it justice.  I can get a good amount of bags done but I want to have other stuff too which is going to take a little longer to make (all a bit top secret right now cos the first one will be a gift for a very special friend, now that's got your attention eh?!).  So right now I am pondering.  Craft Fair or Etsy?  But for today....

I'm going to indulge my inner child and show her the rainbow!


  1. the bags look great, and they're all so different from each other!

  2. Your second last bag here is making me seriously drool...I love it! The floral pattern, the cropping....the style! wowo.....great job!

    stop by sometime!
