Needless to say, not having any of the fabric I was supposed to be using, or the correct needles and thread didn't stop me in the slightest. I drew patterns inspired by the section on crewel work and set off making a bag inspired by the reticules ladies used to carry.

Oh and hello to all the lovely new people who have been introduced to this blog! If you're wondering why I've suddenly gone promotion crazy it's because I'm a little bit keen on my stats page and I'm hoping to get 1000 views of this blog before the new year. Only 39 to go last time I checked. Yes I know, I'm mad. Try not to let it worry you :D
