Some stitching and a new bag

 Its been a busy week at work and I am surviving working full time, one week to go. I do admire women who do work full time and have a busy family life.I don't know how they do it. I'm looking foreward to getting back to my regular routine. I haven't had much sewing time but I did finish my Nat Bird stitchery. I love these designs, in fact I love all Natalie's projects. I have a pin cushion ready to start from her new book Red Home.
 The buttons add that extra special touch.
 A little while ago my on line stitching group had a tea towel bag swap. This is what I made for Peg. I cut the tea towel in half and made 2 little bags.
 This is the beautiful bag I received from Fiona. Its gorgeous and before this tea towel was a bag I never would have used it, its way too pretty to get dirty. Thankyou Fiona.
This is a just because its cute photo. ...
Today I'm going to Cathy's for a bit of stitching therapy and a catch up.
Have a wonderful day.

I love your little bags Leanne, what a great idea. I often see tea towels that I think are to nice to be tea towels but would make a great bag.
