Mmmmm

Here is a newly finished pouch/purse that will be going into the shop tonight, I am trying hard to make a few of these for the fair next week (next week!!) as all the ones of this design I have made previously have sold. This one is slightly different, in that the top folds over and closes with a snap fastener rather than a loop and felt ball that I have done before. I think my favourite part of these is how some of the lining fabric shows up the sides, a bit like piping. Last night we had a good friend around for dinner, this was supposed to happen at Christmas but we could never find a date that suited everyone! Stuart loves cooking and as he is on holiday from work this week he spent lots of time cooking, and I had to take pictures to show you the delicious results. The main course was lamb wrapped in lettuce, and the pudding was a lemon and almond cake with raspberries, hence the title of this post, mmmmmm! And I also wanted to say thank you very much to red otter for featuring me on her blog yesterday, what a lovely surprise : )

Oh, my goodness! That food looks terrific. It's like a gourmet restuarant at home.

My favorite part on your purse is the inside. I love the inner fabric.

Oooo, I wish I was the friend that came over for dinner! Everything looks wonderful!
I don't think you understand how much I want that pouch/purse...however, Mr. French has put a freeze on my spending habits. Apparently, I was getting out of hand (he is totally right). Hopefully, one day.

Soooooooo... is Stuart going to be in the states any day soon, and if so, is he available for parties? We love Brits, so he will be treated very well! :)
Your purse is lovely! That show is coming up and fast, no? *tingles*!

What gorgeous presentation for the meals!

And loving the pouch. I like fold-over flaps like that.

Oh, why did I come here before supper? Drool...What a beautiful meal.

Love that purse- the lining reminds me of the 1950's. So pretty!
