Well, I said I was in a finishing mood - and here's the result. I made a bag with Bluebird's Message. More than a little inspiration came from the beautiful bags Karen and Niky have posted recently. Thank you both!
It's my first posh bag and I'm very pleased with it. It took ages and maybe I should have put some interfacing round the top to strengthen it, but I'll definitely make more bags at some point in the future.
