[![Notebook](http://photos23.flickr.com/34172424_ba574ff441_t.jpg)](http://www.flickr.com/photos/kirstywh/34172424/ "photo sharing")I finished Elspeth last night and now have to sew her up. I hate this bit, possibly because I’m not a huge fan of hand sewing. I do sew alot of garments up on the machine to be honest. Mum always did and I agree that it makes for stronger seams but I guess it depends on the kind of yarn you’re using. Anyway, I needed a new ideas notebook for the handbag(s) and it has been sitting there staring at me for the past week. So, I had to put it out of its misery and cheer it up with some quilt fabric and red ric rac. Can’t wait to start using it.
