Finished...

... I think
 I am really pleased with it. This bag differs from my others as it has a woven rather than a knitted shoulder strap and it does not fit down the length of the bag. The downside of this  being you can see where I wove in the yarn ends.
 I stitched buttons each side of the strap to give extra strength.
The lining is some fabric from Village Haberdashery that I bought last year.
The insert has a double pocket. I may knit some flowers for the flap. It had an outing last week to the concert in St George's Hall.

My new piece of weaving is much finer and I am intending to cut it rather than use as one piece!

What happens when you have a duvet day?


Tia settled down for a morning snooze under the duvet oblivious to the fact that catnip mousie was being played with
 Magic loves catnip amd was rolling around with Catnip Mousie. But this is the best photo I could get.
 It is two years since Magic's (aka Sparky) owner died. I am not sure who has him now but he seems well looked after.
We don't see so much if him nowadays but if he is out and about he always pops around.
