lots of pictures today!

Hello! Here is the second pouch/purse, this one uses the new fabric I got a couple of weeks ago which is a bit thicker than cotton and lends a nice weight to the finished item. I can't decide which is my favourite colourway at the moment, when I look at this one I think 'cappuccino and pink', but then when I see yesterdays I love the different blues with the lime! And can you believe it, yesterday I managed to snag a treasury, which I have filled with all the fabric I would buy if I had limitless money to do so. Imagine having a room full of all of these, heaven! And finally, I have found a box for my butterfly stickers project, I remembered this box that I inherited in a box of tools from my grandad. It was homemade (by grandad?) to house his wood plane, but I think it is too nice to hide away and never be used so I have found the plane a new home. I have also dug out some sandpaper, and it is in need of a good clean too. Just look at the inside of the lid, I love it, it looks as if the date stamped on the original box was 3rd April 1914. I know that this isn't the most beautifully finished box, but it has a lot of history and means so much more because it was my grandads. : )
