From This........

Who would have thought that my bag would end up looking like this ?
I am happy with the new Cushion as it is very soft and will take its place on the garden swing this summer.
I think the ribbon looks ok ..As that is where the handles would have gone.. :)) 
The weather has been spectacular today, so the day was spent in the garden, deadheading roses and the Rhododendrons that had taken a beating from the heavy rain we have had the last couple of days..

The weather bureau tonight says we are in for more rain.. Well it was a great day .. Looks like a crocheting weekend coming up :))
Happy Thanks Giving to our American Friends..
Have a great weekend to all :))

Small crocheted Christmas trees..

Clara Had a posting for small crocheted Christmas trees... I needed something different to make and something that was quick..
It is small and I love making them, the cotton I used is one I have had in my stash for a few years now and I only use it for special crochet items.
It is from France and it is all I have left. I bought it at a garage sale in St Helens( Tas) and the lady I bought it from is a fantastic crafty person.. One of those gems, where you want to sit down and watch them work and learn...
 DMC cotton made in France
I have been given a Beautiful Blog Award from Clara, Thankyou Clara for your kind words..:))
Christmas tree tags
Thanks for stopping by, leave me a message I love to recieve them.. have a great day :))

Crochet Cotton Bag.

I thought today would be a good day to line my bag.

It wasn't the brightest of starts with the weather , but as the day
progressed it warmed up , the grass was cut, grape vines
tied back to the frame , tomatoes, onoins, lettuce were
planted plus numerous others..
I did mange to spy and eat, lovely fresh strawberries from a little
plot near the tunnel house..:))

Did I manage to complete what I started out to do this morning?
NO, a big fat NO.........

So after all that let me tell you about the bag..
It is made from the softest cotton, From memory it was Patons
Stone Wash I have had a very long time.
It is a Bernat free pattern from off the net.
I used a 4mm hook, and have to say I changed the pattern slightly
to suit me..
Not sure if I will use the Mauve handles or bamboo .
Here's hoping it will be all sewn up tomorrow.
Enjoy your day :))
