Pictures of my completed (almost!) felt bag and another ‘weaving through the trees’ image

Short post today, heavy on pictures and light on writing because open week is on at the golf club and I am totally tied up with Lady Captain duties!  As you will see from pictures of my finished bag ‘finished’ is a subjective word!!  I still need to felt the drawstring closure echoing the way my grandmother’s suede pouch closes.  Because of the beautiful flower motif at the top of the bag front I have decided to adapt this drawstring slightly to allow the silk remain uncovered, now I just have to felt the cord and punch some holes at the side, loop it through the inside top (maybe with some small jump rings) and pull it through.  For the moment here are some pictures to look at and when I am happy with the drawstring I will post a final completed image.

Lastly for today there is a picture of me weaving through the trees, thanks Sheila for forwarding me on the image, it brings back happy memories of our weekend together.
