Promise

I promised to show you something sunday which is now.

I decided to make a little project bag for a start.
Did a row of hexagons saturday night, I still need a few half-ones.
Got into Grandma's tin of buttons and laces.


And found this little Mary Engelbreit tin to hold my stuff in the bag.

Decided to leave out the word "Christmas" and replace it with a 'gold' star button.

And since spring has finally arrived in Denmark I will grab a cup of tea, a cosy quilt and my stitchery and enjoy the afternoon in a quiet corner of the the garden.
