An Unlikely Combination!

I am very excited! This weekend we are off to our friend's 60th
birthday party, which happens to be at this Music Festival!


Despite the fact that I thought it was the following weekend
and that our van is terminally ill (but that's another story
for another day), we are actually going .....
We have been having so many trials this year, what with one thing 
and another, we thought this might be our only chance to get away
so we are going for it !!
I have managed to find someone to look after the gallery,
 hired a van and on Thursday we will be 
heading South!
It's years since I have been to a festival, so I will literally and 
metaphorically, be letting my hair down.
 'Now for something completely different' .....
For the last week I have been making a bag.
I have been using crochet and have adapted a pattern
by Lucy, from Attic 24


I have finished the main body.
It's in three colours, rust, cream and a grey brown.


One of my adaptations, is to make a small flap, with a buttonhole,
to keep the bag secure


This is one of the handles, which I have made to look like
the centre pattern of the main body.


I have chosen the button


and the lining material.
It only remains for me to make the second handle
and to finish it off.
Won't have the time this week though .....
I've got a party to go to.
Heh! heh!
Have a good week everyone!
