Lilac Rose, a knitted confection!

This is what I've been working on for the past few days - it hasn't really taken that long but it's been a busy weekend. It's a small shoulder bag in a lovely yarn made up of lilac mohair, a white tape and a very fine strand of greenish sparkle. I've decorated it with three knitted roses with leaves and a few vintage AB clear glass beads scattered about to represent dew drops. It's fully lined with simple white cotton, and has a crochet/plaited handle. Actually, maybe it did take that long, there's quite a lot of work there! This is £15 + P&P

On a slightly sour note, I was very disappointed to have put an awful lot of work into preparing stock and setting up a stall at the previously mentioned dog show at Calthorpe Park and then sell NOTHING! Wow....that's a real downer. And despite there being about 100 devoted dog owners, only two people showed interest in getting a portrait of their faithful companion done. Goodness, I do hope this isn't the shape of things to come in this difficult financial time or I shall have to throw in the towel and admit defeat! The next craft fair I'm attending is the Goodwood Home Farm Open Sunday on the 1st June - let's hope the people of Sussex will be a little more open-handed!

The bag is lovely - very pretty.

Sorry to hear that the Calthorpe show was a bit naff sales-wise. I hope the next one goes better for you, Caroline.

This is so lovely! I love the flowery pattern you put on the front and the green sparkle works really well! You should put instructions into a PDF and sell them on Etsy!
