A full bag of fabric

The bag was full of soft toned fabric, just perfect for some more ladies' and also mens' bags this time. Many thanks Dianne and Mike, your own bag is added to the collection. the pale green combines with the darker grey, so combinations of materials from this lot will work so well together.

Thanks also to Dave and Ken from Warehouse Stationery, the pale green card is just the right colour for the cards that go with each bag.                Another mixed bag of bags is ready to go to Wellington then Tokyo, some fabric and others felted wool, something for everyone.   There are also some bags that have been sent to the recycle-bin, doomed for permanent deletion. Disasters that do not warrant  even  a  small or large repair.Patterns that are in the too-hard basket and banned from the cutting table.How can anyone pull a bag inside out  through a tiny gap in the strap? I used a wooden needle, pliers, then brute force. The bag does look good, and luckily no lasting damage after  extreme measures.  It is a sad fact of life when grocery shopping, meals, laundry and housework all interrupt the more important issue of bags.

Cheers from Jean
