I've just had a birthday.
It wasn't the best, but wasn't the worst.
I've been feeling a tad strange recently, which is hardly surprising with all the goings on lately and my birthday seemed to come and go without me getting overly excited.
Or maybe that's just age.

It hardly seems a year ago that I bought this book with my birthday book money. I always ask my In Laws for an Amazon voucher (it's safer that way), so I can purchase all those books (well some of them anyway) that have made their way onto the wish-list over the year.

Seeing as though this book has been in my possession for a year now, I thought I'd better dip into it before the new batch arrive.

There are quite a few patterns in here that I've marked that I want to make, but it's this fab Everything Tote that I most wanted to do.
I'm in holiday mode at the moment, having just booked our summer holiday last night, so this seemed perfect for that.
I love this bag already. The handles are very comfortable and it's so roomy - it will no doubt be filled with everything-but-the-kitchen-sink all summer long.

Ok, summer is still a long way off, but at least I'm prepared, hey?

Happy belated Birthday Karen!! We are nearly twins, you're right! :)) Love the bag, and what a great idea requesting book vouchers (note to self, must remember for next year!) I've just booked our September holidays for London and Paris too ... VERY excited and want to leave right now! The girls are coming with us this year and I found a great apartment right next to Tate Modern :) Bring on the holidays!! :) Kx
