Catch it !




I joined up in a Polka Dot Swap that Stacey from Polka Dot Daze organised . My partner was Jill Apple Avenue Quilts and here is part of what I sent her along with dotty fabric and a few other bits and pieces . Thanks for organising the swap Stacey and thanks to Jill for being my partner .


In my mad house here I call my bags "catchits" they're really too pretty and frilly for me to wear out but we have a few around the house hanging on doorknobs and on the end of my bed to catch stuff ! All those fiddly bits end up in these bags that (I can't be bothered) really don't go anywhere else.


My rude family members have another name for my bags and yes we have a cat !


Almost forgot to show you what I won from Stephanie at Loft Creations for her giveaway . Her brand new bag pattern and a pack of the most gorgeous charm squares . I took a photo as soon as I received my parcel and then I couldn't find it on my camera and was too embarrassed to tell you that I got stuck into that charm square pack so quickly before I even posted about it .


Thankyou very much Stephanie your bag pattern is a delight !

I would call that "a bits and bobs" bag. Forget what the family calls it!!!! Far too pretty for that.

You should proudly display all your handbags in one location! My mother has a whole big area where all hers are hanging, and it's a very decorative element to that room.

I love your frilly bag, and I'm a bit of a monochrome girl! The charm squares are gorgeous, they look a bit 1930s. Thanks for dropping by to say hi!
