Slowly...

I've been slowly finishing off projects that have been sitting around for a while....

I get really inspired and start off like a bull at a gate.... and then I get bored and add things to the WIP pile (sometimes never to be seen again). But, I decided that yesterday was the day to try to finish off some of the WIPs

My older sister wanted one too, once she'd seen the handbag that I'd made for my younger sister.

So this is hers - finally finished after sitting in the WIP pile for a couple of weeks. Chunky black corduroy teamed with a panel of Ume Komachi.

Now, what to make today?

Gasp! I love this one! I can totally relate to the Bull at a gate getting bored analogy here! Good luck finishing your WIP's.

Ooh, nice Japanese fabric. It seems your "to do" list is getting shorter faster than mine is.

Lovely bag and lucky sisters! I understand your bull/gate dilema. Lately though I am just a bull who hasn't even reached the gate! Bit unproductive really. Anyway, glad someone is!! xox

What a great bag. I love the fabric! I bet your sister will be thrilled when she sees it!

If you think that all those projects are in your..."Waiting Incredibly Patiently" pile, you might not feel so bad when they take longer than planned to finish!!

Your bag is gorgeous... Love the Ume Komachi fabric. I'm sure your sister will think it was worth the wait.
