Bags, blankets & baubles....????

Finally i'm feeling more like my old self again & boy does it feel good!!!! Have been crafting to my hearts content & loving every single moment.
I love crafting for Christmas more than any other time of the year & i have at last almost 
completed my goodies for the swap

Lots more to do before house decorating next week, this is just a very, very discreet peek!!!
Also the bag production is starting to move forward....

Another tweedy in the works & one pretty butterfly bag......

It will go in the shop, although it does co ordinate with my lampshade..... don't think i can wear a lampshade with it though so i'll go ahead & sell  :D 
Been moving with my Ruby fabric at last, not sure if i'll be making cushions or a quilt
I think it'll be a quilt probably for Lauren, as she needs a double bed quilt now to replace the single one I made a few years back

Whatever i decide it can only be real pretty with that fabric, i do so adore it!!!

Ripple is doing good & growing at a nice steady rate, hope to finish well before Christmas.

It'll do well on my bed or just as a throw on my sweet wicker chair.
Do love these colors....

I think I'm about halfway now, must stock up on some yarn to finish!!!

Also just want to wish my American friends a very blessed thanksgiving, hope you are all having a wonderful day!!!!
I'm off to join Ella & Bethany, they're enjoying the Waltons at the mo & i have to say its one of my all time favorite tv series......some hot chocolate first though :D :D :D
Have a sweet evening Lots of Love

  5. Wow you have a lot on the go..isn't it fun? All of your projects look amazing :D

  6. Lots of creative goodness going on in your corner of the world. I used to love watching The Waltons. When my husband I were first together, he would get up every morning to watch Little House on the Prairie at 8 am. So funny to think of that now. Wishing you and yours all the best for a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  7. Hello there. "Ripples in the air - Nah nah nah nah nah nah naaaahh..." Beautiful! Purple was my BIG color when I first left home in the late 80's... Everything was purple, preferably lilac purple. I still love purple but I don't really have anything purple at home... Maybe cause my Hub doesn't care for girlie stuff...

    I am done with 3/4 of my ripple. Looks like I am going to make it for X-mas just like planned. Very curious of your X-mas crafts... Pictures are very pretty... I like!

  8. I absolutely love seeing what you are working on!! :o)

  9. Hello Karen....You have been a busy lady and everything looks wonderful as always!...I just love your butterfly bag...the fabrics and colours are so pretty...Your ripple blanket is growing too and I am once again wishing that I could crochet!
    So glad to hear that you are feeling so well again and full of energy and inspiration....
    Hope you have a lovely Sunday,
