Send in the Clowns!!

Here are a selection of recent bags from Auckland.POP, or Patches on Ponsonby, and these bags have been made by Robyn,Stella and Bobbie.The story goes like this...Robyn won the BOM clown squares, and between them they added borders, and hey presto, the clowns are now in the bags,Just delightful.I could not resist a close up of one  face.

A trio of clown bags, these are so realistic, just like the clowns that were at the fairs and shows I went to as a child. Throw in the ball and win!!! Needless to say I didn't win much at all. More to come but the pictures will not load for some obscure reason. How slow could a PC go???The rest will follow later when speed resumes to normal speed.

 More knot bags from Auckland, these ones look like more  from Marj, I think her favourite colour might be mauve. the lovely black/grey ones will be so popular with the ladies in Japan, who seem to like muted colours. The bright cats will strike a happy note with the new owner.

These are just a  few from the many bags I have collected from the mail box, the local Post shop, the courier at the door at 6.30 a.m., and again at a later more appropriate time, over the past week,from North,South, yes, also East and  West. They will be so appreciated, and the breaking news
 of  another quake in the same area makes us realise how fragile the earth is.
Quotation of the day, from Rose Lane.
"Happiness is something that comes into our lives through doors
 we don't even remember leaving open"
