Just over two weeks to go to A Craft Affair, 28 bags, 2 pencil cases, 1 wallet, and, my newest obsession, 5 Secret Keepers. Clearly I need to put the pedal to the floor. I shall spend this weekend in a cutting frenzy, 4 bags cut out already, while Simon has kindly volunteered to sort out some sort of information label to be attached to my bags (it was the wild look in my eye that did it I think). I have uploaded photo’s of what I have made so far to my Flickr page, here, thanks to one gray afternoon spent in Reubens room hanging one bag after another off my sewing chair. I love the blue of his wall.

I went back to the op shop the other day (because goodness knows I need more fabrics) and bought more fabrics, along with 12 more of the wee 10cm zips with the dangling pulls that I am enamored with. So that means 12 more Secret Keepers, but do I have enough unique material for them? Ah well, I can always go back to the op shop…

I made one in a gorgeous blue flower print, and then looking at it realized that the print looked a lot like Alyssum, which funnily enough was the only flower I could find in my garden for our dinner table even though it is a little sad and winter weary looking. Hoping you all have a lovely weekend, Happy Mid Winter!
