A Beautiful Monday Morning

It's a beautiful Monday morning and I'm "wagging" work today - for a variety of reasons, one of which is to indulge in some sewing and knitting time.  I got a good start last night, finishing off 2 small pyramid purses.  I'm trying out different combinations of interfacing as well as getting a move on with the Christmas presents.

The pyramid purses (courtesy of a free pattern from a wonderful designer Nicole Mallalieu) uses interfacing on both the outside fabric and the lining.  

Both purses have been made using a quilting cotton fabric.  The purse on the left uses Vilene S320 on the outside fabric and med/heavy interfacing on the lining.  The purse on the right uses Vilene S320 on both the outside fabric and the lining.  The verdict is still out on which one I Iike best.  I have a third one in the making which uses only med/heavy interfacing.  And I'm thinking of trialling a fourth one using Vilene S320 on the inside.  Hmm...

That's it for now.  My first blog post - boring as hell but serves my intended purpose of recording my handmade exploits.  I'm off to supplement my chocolate breakfast with something more substantial... maybe some hazelnut chocolate :)
