Bag and Good

















Made this bag using this free pattern from Ottobre. I thought my Cuttle bug might fit in it but I'll need to adjust the pattern size a bit for that to happen. It does however, hold my dies, embossing folders and the sandwich layers at present.




















Found this new magazine in the supermarket the other week. It claims to be NZ's first carbon neutral magazine. It's a very interesting read for me since I like to find ways to live more sustainably. One thing I found from this magazine is a vege box outlet up at Kumeu (i.e. 20mins drive from here) that grow their own vegetables organically. So I'm going up to check out their shop and hopefully sign up for a box of seasonal organic vegetables. :-) Wellington & Wairarapa folks can sign up for something similar through the CSA program down that way.

Wanting a worm farm now....

  6. I adore your Bag Penny. The colours are gorgeous too.
    The mag sounds great, how did the organic vege trip go? Were busy trying to sort out a new vege garden. We are doing two raised gardens about 2 meters wide and 8 meters long, so we are able to produce our own veges, gotta be better than shop brought and also cheaper.

  8. LOVE the bag, Penny!! I have been dying to try to make another purse. Maybe now that things are settling down around here, I'll try out that pattern. You did a great job with it. Thanks for your comment on the babysitting rate. Glad to hear it's not outrageous. I really like this girl and will most likely ask her to sit with Ella again.

  9. Totally love the fabrics on your bag- gorgeous.

    Love the vege idea too - a few years ago we had weekly organic fruti/vege delivered but we stopped because ... I can't remember why - duh!
