My lovely beach bag!

I have to show you my beach bag, I am very proud of it. The boat stitching was the free gift on the Cross stitcher magazine out this month. I bought it on holiday and thought it would be great to stitch to remember my holiday. I decided to make it into a bag like the one I had made mom a few weeks ago, so when I saw a piece of blue spotty material in one of the gift shops in Charmouth I had to buy it. So last week on my return I stitched the boat piece on the front of the one panel and then made the bag..... in one evening!!! I just need another beach holiday to use it now. Actually I used it at the weekend, it is too nice to wait until my next holiday. It is about A4 paper size and is fully lined inside with just plain white material. I also have enough blue spotty stuff left to make another bag!!!

I haven't quite finished my September stamp, but it is nearly done. I'm sure having a long bank holiday weekend coming up it'll give me chance to finish it and stitch it into an ornament.

Otherwise this week I still have Family Tree on my rota as I only spent 3 evenings on it last week. I have decided to be abit more flexible with my rota and just pick at the beginning of each week what I fancy stitching on.

Hope everyone is having a good week so far, work has been very quiet as several of the lads are on holiday so I have been stitching a little at work also.... if no one is around!!!

Until next time.

These bank holidays do have their uses! The bag is lovely. I have a few more in the pipeline, I think they are addictive

Great finish on the bag.
Do you have a pattern of the bag or do you make it out of your head.
I love the Idea.
I think I'm gonna try it one time.

I love that bag! What a good idea for the free kit! I'm hoping my mum will pick up a copy of that magasine for me and bring it over to Egypt so I can make the kit too.

Lovely bag - such a different way of finishing. I wish I could sew and do a finish like that.
