.... from a few days away in Cornwall and boy, was it cold! Lots of lunches out, visits to coffee shops, and a trip to a local market that had a weekend antiques and vintage fair (bliss). I bought a gorgeous vintage coat, which I was slightly perturbed to hear was a genuine 1970's label. 1970s, vintage? What does that make me? Veteran? Antique? Archaic? Prehistoric? Perhaps I'll begin referring to myself as a genuine 1960s model, one careful owner ........
As previously mentioned, I've now finished my crochet handbag, and I'm really pleased with the result.
This was made from a couple of balls of chunky wool I picked up in a local charity shop. The flower is actually a fabric table decoration, one of six from another charity shop. The bag is lined with new, cream cotton fabric I had left over from lining some curtains, so it's a real recycled beauty! I think it will be appearing shortly in my Folksy shop, Little Owls.
And did I get any inspiration from my break-ette in Cornwall? Oh, yes - you will see the results over the coming weeks.
