My Creative Space


 My creative space is still all about Michelle's camera bag (it was her birthday yesterday too).

It's on the home stretch now...

There was one final choice to make - antique brass or silver hardware. I've never had such a dilemma over the hardware colour. With most fabrics, it's quite easy to plainly see which one suits better. But, with the linen, the grey and white floral, and the gingham, both colours could have been used.


I'm going to keep you in suspense 'til the end to find out which one Michelle chose!

All of the pieces have been made now, and it's time to fit this jigsaw together.... but first, I'm off to do a little bit of voluntary community service.

I'll catch up on Kirsty's big list once I get back home thisafternoon.

Wow, that is tough. I was absolutely going to say brass until I saw both next to each other. Brass would brighten it up a bit, silver would be classy.

Love the print - just beautiful. How smart will Michelle look wondering down the street with that over her shoulder! A beautiful bag and accessory!

The lighter one definitely for me but it will be interesting to see which one Michelle picks. I am also having fun watching your followers tick over every time I come here. Some days one and some days two (sounds like a song to me). Cherrie
