I want to thank Typsknits for showing her lovely bag and inspiring me to try it, tho it did take me 6 years to start it, once I got going I could not put it down. It took me 3 months to make it. Here is the link to her lovely bag.

Thank you I found it relaxing doing it plus deciding what to put on it as its a bit different to the pattern book.

For anyone who is interested in the book, I just found a copy on e-Bay. The total was$20.14 including shipping. The ones on other sites including Amazon are $35 and up.
I love to do embroidery and think this bag is beautiful and useful. I am also thinking about making a smaller size one for my 14 yr old gd.

Thank you for all your kind words. That sounds a bargain on ebay, I got mine 6 years ago so a lot cheaper. It was a lot of fun to make.
