Finishing and starting …

I am finishing up Senika’s bag - I have to finish the lining [green satin ^_^] and wash it. Lining will be on Mum’s sewing machine [as I have not set mine up, as there is nowhere in my current house to put it.] Washing presents a different problem. I have read Sundara’s sock cleaning post, and I am inclined to want to get some of this miraculous Synthrapol. The only problem seems to be that it is hard to get in Australia. Also - my secret pal stuff should really be sent out by the end of the week - so I am cutting it a bit fine!
And so,

this is the start of my new felted bag. The knitting and felting went ok in this instance - much better than the pink one, and much better than the other purple [I will show these when I have worked up my ability to accept that it is a little bit of a failed test run - rather than some kind of terrible indictment of my hand’s ability to do anything right.]. I am going to couch some brown wool, and then a little sewing to put buttons on. Ben says he can see that it is blossom [bless his heart], but I am not so sure. Does anyone else see it?

Weekend …
