I've been away for a while I know, but I do have a good excuse miss!!!
I had eye surgery to remove a cataract at the start of April. All went well but it left me with no reading glasses untill now!!
But my goodness seeing clearly again is such a blessing ( albeit in only one eye, the other is due to be fixed in late may)
The colours... I had no idea how much my colour vision had changed, we had to redecorate the hallway. I realised that the colour on the walls really was peachy pink as my darling husband had tried to tell me, and not the soft beigewhich I had been seeing for nearly two years since we looked at the colour charts.
The strangest thing was seeing the colours of my felt bags "properly" for the first time. I was so nervous, "What if I didn't like them anymore?"
I opened the boxes of bags the day after the operation with great trepidation and carefully examined them all.
I had a few surprises, the colours were so vibrant and thank goodness I love them all!!!!
And so just because I still get a kick out of them here are a few of my bright and beautiful bags...
Of course yuo can see more in my Etsy and Folksy shops too (I know another bit of shameless self promotion!)

- . I love to create, always have... even as a child I was always up to my ears in fabric, yarn, paper and glue. So now I create bags, the process I use developed over time, and is still changing, each new wool or design presents it's own challenge. So I don't get bored. Craft Shows are so much fun,meeting folk, both customers and other crafters. I always get such a buzz when we are setting up and a plain old marquee or hall gets transformed into an arcade of interesting creations.
