Nearly halfway!

Hello ^_^

As the title suggests, I'm nearly halfway on HMS Victory and I wish I could spend more time on it but exams start next week.

I have started 3 new projects for the stream, 1 birthday present and 2 SALs. 

Field of Remembrance 
I haven't got much done on the SALs so I'll save those photos for later. However, one of them isn't going very well and has been put in the naughty corner as I've frogged it countless times and I'm only up to the second step of the first part. 

I bought a few sewing items after the excitement of finishing the bag like an A2 cutting mat which is fabulous to use. I also bought these charts as one is discontinued and the other fits lovely on a piece of blue hand dyed fabric that is in my stash.
Last but not least, the weather has been lovely in Durham, Can you believe it?! I can't! Here a couple of photos from the nature reserve behind the estate I live on :)

Thank you ever so much for the lovely comments on my last post and I will get around to replying to them all. Your comments really made my day!

Enjoy the rest of your week :)

Departure Satchel by StudioCherie

Hello everyone, it's me again.

I am here with a finish :D There were tears of joy when I snipped that final thread. The pattern used was Departure Satchel by StudioCherie. The fabric is from Frumble.

Secret pocket (well, not so secret now)
This bag was a HUGE learning curve for me, there were times I felt like giving up but I persevered and it was all worth it in the end. I'm going to have a scar from this project. I was cutting notches in one of the seams and decided that my left index knuckle could do with one as well! It's sore but looks like it's healing up nicely. I'm going to go dry my eyes now, so proud that I got this finished.
