I wouldn't normally go for yellow or brown things and I picked up this fabric at a jumble sale with no real project in mind. However after some washing and drying to remove the smell, and 40 mins of sewing, I think the stripes worked really well for this carry bag. It's a great size for library books/market shopping.
It's day two of the snow. It is so thick now that if I venture outside I have to tuck my pants into my socks a la Tintin. Note to self - purchase galoshes. Hot blackcurrant has been keeping my insides warm and cabin fever is yet to set in. Glad I have a pile of books, plenty of work and a project (a new purse) to keep me occupied. Oh and (I couldn't forget) Happy Birthday Jumon!
