New pencil case

I went to visit my parents last weekend and my mum found this piece of embroidery amongst her fabric stash. She said she loves doing embroidery but doesn't know what to do with it once she's finished it. I know what she means, there are lots of crafts I wouldn't mind doing but I don't know what I'd do with the results because I don't particularly want to decorate my house with them.

She said I could have it if I wanted it, so today I turned that lonely scrap into a lovely new pencil case for myself, I've needed one for ages, I keep losing or forgetting my pens when I need to take them somewhere. The back of it is a beautiful cream macro suede that was from a upholstery fabric sample (mum has hundreds of these, she was given them when a shop closed down).

I also went to the Bendigo Sheep and Wool show but it's a bit late to blog about that now isn't it. I've had a nasty cold all week so haven't felt like posting about it. I'll just say that I had a great time looking at the lovely yarn and patting the animals, two of my favourite pastimes :) you can see some of my photos here.
