March's bag completed much earlier in the month

You could no doubt tell from my last post that I liked the look of the March bag much better than the February one

So here's what I made this afternoon


I love the effect the space dyes give - however I might just make another sometime in prints


The potatoes were a huge success at the rugby yesterday with lots of the girls going back for seconds - that's always a compliment


Sadly Sarah didn't have such a great afternoon - she was about to get up from the floor just before the match after doing some warm up pressups when one of her team-mates started up some horseplay and accidentally knocked another girl into Sarah - result - elbow back to square one again before the match had even started.


I took her to A&E last night - not the most fun place to spend Mother's Day teatime. It appears she has quite shallow sockets on her elbow joints so this will probably be a recurring problem - we will have to sort out some triceps strengthening exercises so her muscles will be better equipped to prevent it recurring. She has Regional training next Sunday and a Regional match the week after - hopefully we can get it back to playing fitness in time but she'll never do press-ups within reach of anyone again that's for sure.


I've had notification of my Four Seasons Spring Swap recipient - so I've made a start on this too.


I was going to start something completely from scratch but as I was searching through my cupboard the other day I came across a piece I started some time ago in very pretty pale pink and pale green - just perfect for Spring in my book - so I'm developing that - I'll show you a little preview next time

I love how your bag turned out. The space dyes work beautifully! I preferred the March bag too...I think that's why I got it done so fast.

Hopefully they will find some good Physical Therapy for Sarah. I'm sure she was disappointed though.

The bag is great!

Oooh . . . I love your bag. It's so gorgeous. Too bad about Sarah. I hope she's better soon.

Ouch! Here's hoping Sarah is recovered quickly. That bag for March is lovely! The colors look very spring like. I've started on my Four Seasons quilt as well, but, um, not sure about it. I may have to scrap my idea and start over...hmmmn...

Love that purple bag. I really like the look of dyed fabrics and this one flows back and forth so nicely. Wow. You are fast!
How Sarah gets some good advice about what to do to protect her arm from further reoccurances.
