Bags for a change...

You will have seen on Twiglet's blog from Wednesday that she has made a really lovely bag with lots of pockets that took her ages to make because of its complexity so we have both been working on designs for simpler versions.  You will see that yesterday she made two really pretty bags and posted them on her blog here.  
I was working in a parallel world here at Sewing by Annie's also making bags and these are the three I came up with.....


They are all different sizes and have different combinations of pockets but are all made with a lovely blue checked fabric and denim.








I thought you also might like to see why I didn't post my bags like Twiglet did last night.  It was my darling hubby's birthday yesterday and the two of us joined our 3 children, their other halves and our gorgeous two little Granddaughters out for a meal.  Our son and his girlfriend made the birthday cake and I thought you would like to see it.....


I will explain that my hubby is a season ticket holder for Shrewsbury Town football  [yes he's quite mad I know  :-) ] and this was the fab design they came up with.  I love it and must add that it tasted as good as it looked.  Thanks to them both for the fab job they did with it.....No folks he isn't seven but if they had put all the candles on the top we would have had to have the fire brigade on standby  :-)

We all had a really fab time.  I'm blessed with the best family in the world and love them all to bits.
