Some French influence.....

When I was given a charm pack of Rouenneries I knew I wanted to make a bag designed by Kris from Tag Along Teddies blog.   This is my version of  French Shopping Spree


A close up of the detail - quilting, applique and stitchery .....


The strap is fun with jumbo ric-rac...


Kris is the co-host of OPAM with Peg, and has a lovely quilt in Homespun this month.... and just made another beaut Frenchy quilt... have a look HERE

Something about the french theme has brought a bit of romance into the air here....


Righto - Gotta Go..... I wonder if I can conjour up some romance round here ????
