Spring is well on its way! This wonderful spread of snowdrops was a lovely surprise in daughter and SIL's garden. Until they've been in their house a year, the garden will, hopefully, keep producing surprises.

Bag making has been the craft of the past few weeks. At the suggestion of a customer, I made a couple with zip fastening tops.

This one has already been sold! The pocket on the front is a new style for me. It has darts at the bottom for more fullness.

I'm really pleased with how this bag, above, came out. The coloured panels are patched pieces edged with bias binding. It was a bit of a fiddle to do but really finished it off well. It also has an internal zipped pocket (another new procedure for me). My mother wanted a bag for her music folder so I gave this one to her for Mothering Sunday.

Bag number 4 is almost finished - I think it's about time I made something different!

Bye for now

Snowdrops! What a fun name and how could the flowers not be beautiful. That is my favorite kind of surprise. Really like your bags, too, and always use a pocket. It adds a little ooomph. You have been busy.

Your bags are lovely Teresa, and I like the variety. I've been busy knitting, but have a play quilt to make once the knitting is finished.

I moved to Wales last May, I had to wait for 5 years till I retired. I spend my days enjoying the countryside,and making a new garden when it is fine. On the wet days I enjoy sewing, knitting, crocheting and cooking. Good luck with the sales of your work, I usually box the bottom of bags but recently saw a denim bag with darts for fullness.
