Homemade Bag

A few months ago my mum gave me this beautiful bag she'd made for me to keep my knitting in. She also made a matching roll for keeping my crochet hooks in. What a clever mummy I have!




It's very hot here in Umbria at the moment and for the first time ever I'm longing for the end of summer. It's too hot to go out so I've been indoors most of the time sewing and knitting next to the fan! 

There are only 4 weeks to go now until our baby is due. Apart from being a bit hot I'm feeling really well and I could quite happily stay pregnant forever!!

Hello Sarah:
Like you, we are experiencing exceedingly hot temperatures in excess of 35C. We do feel for you in all of this heat but, as you say, not too long to go before the baby is born. How exciting.

Your mum is a godsend.
Your knitting bag has given me the idea of a laptop bag on the same fabrics. Why do the have to be that "modern" all the time!
I hope the hot gets away soon for you.

It must be very tiring for you in this heat when your pregnancy is so far advanced. Take Care xx

Your mother has done a great job. I can't believe how neatly it is sewn together. You are very funny - only you would declare that you'd stay pregnant forever.

They're beautiful Sarah! Particularly love the crochet hook roll - so pretty. Wishing you all the best for the next few weeks, and hoping you get all your craft projects finished before them little one arrives! I think I was staple-gunning chair seats the night before I was induced... only got one completed, and the other one is still waiting!
