London Shopping Bag

Yeah! Another bag.
This shopping bag is about 50cm wide (20'') and 36cm tall (14''). I added a red lining incl. a nice inside pocket for the money.
And if I evey take the bag to London for some shopping, I won't be lost.
Yeah again!
I also made some potholders for a friend with cat's paw prints.

The 'Waldspirale' is a building in Darmstadt designed by the famous Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Built in 2000 there are no straight lines and the roof is green (as in green stuff grows on the roof)
  According to the internet, none of the over 1000 windows look alike. I'm personally quite fond of the one down here.

Sea Turtle and the Stormlight Archive

It's been a while I did any mayor cross stitching. But currently I'm listening the the two first books in the Stormlight Archive Sage by Brandon Sanderson, and they both are very good, and very long, and excellent to do cross stitching to.
The pattern I'm doing is called 'Honour Diversity' (the link I have in the side bar is not working any longer - sorry about this, but I can't find any place right now that carries the pattern). I've got one of the dolphins done and the two sea turtles and now I am working on the big fish. No back stitching done yet, and there are also a ton of french knots, which will have to wait until the end.

Happy Easter

More eggs. Those are felted. I've got the kit from my sister some times ago and decided to give it a try. They (I've got about 7 of them) looks quite nice in my ficus tree.
 This table runner has been a long time in the making, but is now ready just for spring. The background is made from hexagons I sewed together by hand. The flowers are applique.
