Sunshine and Strawberries, oh and lots of bags!








I received in the post some gorgeous Amy Butler and Joel Dewberry fabric this week and decided to make something new (despite having dolls heads and legs sitting waiting to be put together!)  so made a clutch bag, which I was so pleased with and enjoyed  making so much that I got a bit carried away!  These are some of my favourites.  Having lugged huge bags about when the boys were younger to accommodate the paraphernalia needed with 3 young children I now like to take as little as possible with me and if I don't sell them all in the next couple of weeks I will definitely be keeping one for myself!

The weather has been pretty good this week, but with a weekend coming up and Wimbledon about to start I think we are set for rain!  I've ignored this and made a pavlova for tonight's supper, although I prefer raspberries, nothing says June to me quite like strawberries.  Hope you get some sunshine where you are this weekend x

    1. I love the first one too, it's linen and from Sweden, very expensive so I only use it on smaller things! Jx
