Sac de vacances d'été



Any excuse for a new bag that's me. Off to France for our summer holiday, so I felt a new summer bag was in order with matching purse of course.



I'm not sure if we have any internet connection, so I think I'll be feeling rather bereft. But as I've just finished a table runner and a quilt and have managed to sneak them in my packing as they need binding so plenty of hand sewing to keep me out of mischief. Seriously wanted to take a sewing machine, but Hubby was rather horrified and threatened to take his banjo if I did LOL!

I'll be back with a scheduled post in the week for my last DT project for The Stampsmith.

Soooooo sorry for my lack of blogging comments, I just don't know where the time goes. Will enjoy visiting all your lovely blogs when we get back from France.

So take care and have a great weekend & Happy Crafting. xxx


Take care xxx

Love the title and the bag and purse are out of this world!! Absolutely adore the pleats at the top of the bag and the embroidery on the handle!!

You'll be outshining the French for chic and style - these are beautiful! Hope you have a wonderful holiday, though I feel your pain with the internet connection (mine's up the spout and I'm perched in Caffe Nero to do some catching up!)... I think sewing machine + banjo sounds like a fair exchange!
