I have finally finished it!

Do you ever wonder why some things end up in the UFO pile?  Even something you really  really really like? And something that is not difficult or time consuming ?

Meet my latest UFO that is now a FO.

This is Dawn’s Baseco bag, a pattern she designed and sold a couple of years ago. 

I received some pink charm squares for my birthday shortly after making my first bag from this pattern and decided to use them to make myself a bag.  (seeing as I am a bit of a pink girl).  I did most of the embroidery but it has waited for over a year to be assembled.  I cut out all the pieces just before we went to UK.  Yesterday I decided to finish it off before it ended up on the 2013 UFO list.

It goes together so well,

It is a beautiful bag, and great pattern.

We made a stop over in Austria on our way to UK, and spent a couple of days in Salzburg.  It was absolutely beautiful.  On one of our walks through the Old City we came across the Christmas Shop.  Of course I had to go wandering in for a look.

Absolutely mindblowing to see all the decorated eggs.

These pics show just a small part of the collection, and certainly dont do it justice.

Everywhere you looked there were more.

Loved these cat ones.  That black one reminds me of my Molly.when she was young and inquisitive.

But then again, even in her “senior” years she is still somewhat inquisitive – just too lazy to do anything but look at the bug.

Marilyn, I have one of those eggs; from Vienna though I think. It has a lines of the music for Silent Night on it. The shop assistant packaged it in a 1/2 dozen egg carton for me to bring it home safely :-)
