Beautiful

Can you remember the set that I made for my husbands niece. Well she has had a girl. Yesterday we went to Saudi Arabia to visit them. She is absolutely beautiful, as all new babies are, but she is lovely and so tiny. The set is in full use, which is great. I’m sorry but I can’t post pictures. But I have taken some pics on the way home.                                                                                                                                                Bahrain-Saudi Border This is the border on the King Fahad Causeway, going back to Bahrain. It’s not very clear as it was taken with my mobile while the car was moving.                                                                                                 Al Abraj RestaurantThis is a restaurant called Al Abraj (meaning ‘up high’). There is another one with red lights on the Bahrain side of the causeway. But I couldn’t get a good picture of it. There are lots of these restaurants all over Bahrain, but they don’t quite look like this one. Lovely food though! We took my mum to an Al Abraj while she was here, in the capital, Manama.  Three years I have been in Bahrain and this is the first time that I have been to Saudi, it’s pretty much like Bahrain, except there is more space and a lot less people. Which I liked. The men drive like the are either escaping from some horrendous beast behind them or they have a passenger who is having a heart attack. They have to be in front. Women are not allowed to drive there. Which I don’t mind, I get to have a break. Do not to go there if you have a queasy  stomach, it will be in your throat all the time. All in all we had a nice day, but I’m glad that I live in Bahrain.

Quilted Patchwork Handbag

This is the first time that I tried this bag, So I didn’t want to waste mega nice material doing it, so I just used one kind and put funky patterns on every other panel. The back is the same.

I’m on myspace.com

I thought that I would get myself onto the extended network, so I have signed up for a myspace account.

Gracie (Nearly broke the Pfaff) Tote

I had a bit of a to do with the Pfaff while making this bag, but thanks to my lovely hubby (who I might add was at work all last night and still sorted Pfaff out) fixed it and everything is right with the world again.

The Gracie tote is my adaptation of one that I have seen on the web, but can’t remember where so I have made it from memory. I absolutly love the fabric, but Pfaff doesn’t. I think Pfaff is glad that this bag is finished.

I did some beading work on the flap as I couldn’t find a button that would go. It has a velcro fastening on the flap.

Navy & Stripe Bags

Here are two new bags that I have completed using a navy blue fabric that is kinda like chenille. It’s lovely and soft. Some stripey fabric that has stripes in the same sort of fabric as the navy. I did the clutch with a flat bottom, if you remember the floral clutch that I did with the square bottom and didnt like it…

Well I like this one.
