i finished my bag two nights ago while having a (quite long) phone conversation with Leigh-Ann. it was lots of fun to stitch, but my fingers were a little sore when i was done. πŸ™‚ i think i love stitching with yarn even more than traditional embroidery… more experimenting to do! & maybe even mixing the two? yes. i'll be carrying this bag for a long time, i love it so much!

here's a detail shot…

the design was inspired by the always classy Orla Kiely.
