365 Days, Day 146

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier 'n puttin' it back in (Will Rogers)

Take, if you must, this little bag of dreams, Unloose the cord, and they will wrap you round (W B Yeats)

My handbag is coming along slowly. Being somewhat out of practice, it has taken me ages to do fiddly little things. But I am enjoying it immensely.

I have heard it said that you can tell a lot about a woman by looking inside her handbag. This is not a job that any man should do single-handedly. You do not know what strange, forgotten and uncommon items may be lurking inside, at the bottom, in the dark corners where fingers do not always reach.

Come to think of it, I am not sure what the contents of our handbags actually say about us... Who decides what the contents say? Psychologists? Must be males who thought up such a notion. We females know that we have a need for many interesting things to be carried around with us. What about man-bags… what lurks therein?

In the meantime my new handbag progresses, eagerly awaiting a multitude of dreams.


  1. I am making a bag too, and its painfully slow going as i am not at all sure what i am doing !!! i am enjoying the experience of learning as much as looking forward to the finished project tho.

  2. I will help you if you need help - maybe we could have a journal + sewing day soooon!
