A bag I made for a secret friend in Australia

Hello all

I'm back after some days full of knitting and and joy.So much inspiration an so many new skeins of yarn.And all the nice chats with knitting friends from different parts of Sweden.About knitting I write another day.
I only present a bag made in the middle of July.It's made by japaneese fabrics and a little cross-stitch embroidery,a part of a free pattern on the member site of DMC.The colours of the bag are, in reality, a bit darker.I had some different ideas about this bag but the embroidery was a little too dark so I had to choose among my fabrics so the bag could be more bright.The blue japaneese fabrics can be dark too so you have to get some lighter blocks or strips to get the patterns more clear.I'm very satisfied with the result.And the new owner is happy for the new bag.A women can not have too many bags

I like those Japanese fabrics bags. Is it easy for you to buy Japanese fabrics there?

Dear Hideko

About japaneese fabrics-yes we have some swedish quiltshops who have lovely japaneese fabrics and also some on-line shops who have good fabrics.
I'm so fond of these fabrics and my boy is going to be in Tokyo from September 12 2006 until July 2007.I hope he sends me many many....
Have a nice weekend

My city Sendai is north of Tokyo. Is your son going to study in Japan? If he has a chance to visit here, please say hello to him.

I hope he can go visiting some places in Japan too.
Have a nice weekend and thank you for your kindness

Dear Mimi

Yes we swaped bags and I got one from her and my gift to her was this.A lot of fun and a lot of work.To do a present made me a little bit nervous.Would it be something she liked or...
The bag -especially the embroidery is a little bit darker then on the picture.
