DAPHNE darling I had to name a bag after you...

Wednesday, 14 April 2010
Resplendent in rich red buttery soft grained leather...
And in all her glory...
She is in the Fairysteps, Dulcie May Vintage inspired bag collection here
She sort of evolved as I went along. She started out as a cornflake box...
I was Sooooo cheesed though part way through making her to find that I had placed one of the back handles off position by 1cm. Grrrrrr.... Its not really noticeable now the bag is made up but Im selling at a reduced rate to make up for this blunder. I know its there! Its going to be a great bag for someone out there...


Last notes:
Did you notice? Ive changed my Vintage inspired bag collection name. I have put it back to the original name I used for my bag making years ago... Dulcie May. A name taken from each of my precious Daughters. It seems apt to name beauty after beauty...
The accounts are an ongoing battle...
I have a stinking cold and have been up since 5. I feel knackered.
The birds went into overdrive out there at 5.45. Their song floated up from the woods, carried on the damp morning air, clear and crisp.
I am shoemaking today and making a new accessory style.
Must fold up mount washpile and pack it away too.
Is my nose ever going to stop running????
The real Daphne is thriving but lonely. I may send the children to rustle another lamb later...
