I am one of the lucky winners in Suzanne's recent giveaway to celebrate her blog's first anniversary, and my gift arrived this week. If you don't know Suzanne's blog, Fieldy, go and take a peek. There's all manner of crafty goings on - sewing, knitting, lately some crochet, and especially beautiful handmades from Harris Tweed.
I am thrilled with my spongebag, and in fact think this is far too nice to be relegated to the bathroom and trips away (which I rarely make, to be honest). I am going to use it for small sewing and knitting projects. Sometime soon I hope to tackle something on dpns, not sure what yet...socks? fingerless gloves? Anyway, this will be the perfect work-in-progress bag.
You can see the beautiful colours woven in the tweed here, and I love the finishing touches of the chocolate velvet ribbon and the metal fly. It has been raining here pretty much non-stop all week, so not great for taking photos. A brief respite this afternoon saw me out in the garden, but it was still windy and no matter how many pics I took, I couldn't get the labels to keep still. I gave up!
Suzanne also sent me a lovely card - the photograph of the poppies was taken by Caireen at The Patchwork Dress. You can see more of Caireen's photocards here.
Suzanne, thanks so much, it's lovely to see your work in the flesh, and now actually own a piece!
Suzanne and Caireen have both just celebrated their birthdays so Happy Birthday to You!!
