Flirting (in a non-committal fashion) with Blogtoberfest

It appears that I'm blogging on a daily basis, even though I didn't sign up for Blogtoberfest (because I couldn't possibly make that sort of commitment..!?). It might be that I actually have something to say, like "I made a new version of the Day Bag...."


Or it could be, that with school holidays being what they are, I'm happy to get at least ONE work-related(ish) thing done in a day, even if that's just a late-night blog post.

So anyway, I made a new Day Bag (over the last week) and I got a blog post written today.

Who'd a thunk it?


EDITED TO ADD: Yes, I love the fabric, too. It was originally purchased at GJ's a couple of years ago for a table runner I made for a friend. In rather typical style*, when they told me it was the last two or three metres on the bolt, I bought the lot. It was also the feature panel on one of the original A-Line skirts (that became my A-line skirt pattern) and there's a teensy bit left for another project.


*A sure-fire way to make me buy twice as much fabric as I originally intended, is to say, "Oh, that's the last of it". I'm terrified of being caught without enough to finish something and will (almost without exception) say, "I'll take it all". (There's a tip for all you fabric-sellers....)

I was wondering if you'd jumped on the band-wagon. The bag looks great - love the fabric. Keep 'em coming! (Bags and blogposts, that is...)

Gorgeous, Nicole! I love the interior fabric as much as the exterior fabric.

Lovely bag, Nikki! Great fabrics .... where do you find them?!

And here I am thinking that maybe a blog a day was a bit of an error in judgement. Still, I'm on the bandwagon and should be blogging instead of blog hopping.

Wow Nicole! That fabric is amazing! I really need to experiment more with large patterns on bags.

YUM! Loving that one!
And with you on the blogtoberfest thingy. Admiring all the chicks for doing it but I'm afraid I've come over all blokey and ran screaming from the commitment thing too! (Am enjoying all the posts though)
