Now, I know exactly what I want.....a pretty fabric patchwork tote bag, quite wide (i.e. with a gusset), with short fabric handles. Couldn't find one anywhere....I did see a couple with wooden handles, and some in PVC instead of fabric. But that's not what I want, and I'm not getting something that is a compromise....I want what I want!
It occurred to me that some of you very talented ladies who do patchwork may well make and sell some of your wares, or you may know of people who do. So does anyone know? I like the idea of buying something handmade from a fellow blogger.
I've had a look on ebay and amazon.....plenty of bags, but again not really what I want - lots of zippered ones that look like weekend bags (too big, and I want an open topped one), or the wooden handled ones, or PVC.
We got a thermal curtain for the front door too....all our windows are double glazed, but the front (glass) door is only single glazed, so it lets the heat out and the cold in. OH has just put it up, he's good like that :-)
