My swap partner that I made a bag for is offline all weekend so will post some pictures now of what I made her as I know she has received it. I chose a pattern by Anna Maria Horner called the 'Multi Tasker Tote'. When I received the pattern and started cutting out my fabric I was worried, because it really is a BIG bag! But my swap partner requested a big bag for EVERYTHING so hopefully she loves it : ) The fabric I got from Spotlight, the outer is a furnishing weight fabric, with the inner 100% cotton. I added lots of extra pockets for the inside including a zippered pocket and key-chain, for a big bag the pattern only offered one pocket on the inside and I decided it definitely needed more.
I really like this pattern, was a little hard to understand in parts, probably due to lack of sleep on my part, but have had a few requests from friends to make them one as pressies so am definitely going to be making more of these!

I got busy in the kitchen and whipped up one of these salads to take some photos of - sorry can't share the recipe yet - you'll have to wait for a new recipezine due to come out very shortly - stayed tuned for that!
We also had a horrible storm come through that catapulted our trampoline almost through the sliding doors at the back of our house. It was very scary with a huge dust storm turning the sky almost black for a few minutes. I had to get hubby to come home and help me move it out of the way of the doors, some minor damage to the veranda and guttering and a very poor looking trampoline and now sitting outside the doors waiting for hubby to get a chance to assess the damage and see if it is fixable.And a little bit of crafing whipping up some more hair pretties to build up my market stash. I have a market this Sunday and being the school holidays I am hoping it is busy with lots of tourists.
